The Riverdance Juniors Program runs alongside the Summer School. The program consists of three days of dancing and fun running for five and half hours each day. The dancers will be taught the Riverdance choreography, simplified to accommodate all standards of dance. Our aim is to inspire, encourage and motivate the young dancers through a fun and enjoyable experience. The sessions will be limited to twenty-five dancers.
For those dreaming of joining Riverdance, the school offers unique opportunities
The school will become the main way in which dancers over the age of 18 will audition for our shows. We feel that by auditioning over the course of a week the dancers are given a fair way of showcasing not only their talents but also their work ethic and personality. These are two traits that are extremely important to Riverdance.
The goal of the school is to welcome the next generation of dancers, to educate and to ensure that all students enjoy the experience. The scholarship covers the full cost of the program.
To apply for the Scholarship:
