Hi All. just looking for some suggesions on starting off in dance for age 4? Girls and boys…anyone try the 3 – 5 class in b’town dance studio? or the one in Drogheda which I think is dance and drama? Is there ballet classes locally and what about irish dancing…unsure where to start so lots of ideas welcome!!!April 8, 2013 at 11:20 am #127584JedtMember
Sinead Lightley is brilliant! Our eldest daughter was having a bit of a hard time with some kids near where we live who were teasing her, so we put her in drama & dance and it has boosted her confidence and she is much less bothered now if those girls try to annoy her.
We had tried a dance class in Laytown first and then a dance summer camp in Bettystown but she did not like them, she said sometimes some of the teachers shouted and she does not like raised voices. We had heard of Sinead Lightley, she was recommended by another mum we know, so we tried there and we are so happy to have put her in to the classes. She has been going to Sinead’s classes since Sept 2011 and loves it. She goes from 4-5pm every Thursday and its a pay as you go option.
She was in the dance/drama show at the end of the season last year in The Little Duke Theatre in Drogheda and it was so brilliant seeing her up on stage, full of confidence with a big smile on her face being one of the orphans in Oliver!
This year, we have two of our daughters in the weekly classes, our 8 & 5 year olds and they love it.
Highly, highly recommend Sinead. firstname.lastname@example.org or 086-3371187

Thanks Sabbi. I have heard of Sinead before I’m sure. Is she in Bettystown? Glad to hear your daughter loves it. its brilliant to find something like that they enjoy and more importantly makes them happy and gives them confidence..Thanks for the recommendation.April 22, 2013 at 11:37 am #127743AnonymousInactive
