IRISH DANCING CLASSES in Kent
Kent
The Hackett-Kyne Academy is the ideal place for people to improve their coordination and also learn how to connect with the lively music as they dance.

Classes are fun and exciting as well as challenging and rewarding for those that aim for the competitive levels.

We take children from 4 years old, however, we do take younger and it is best to talk to Tara Hackett or Natalie Kyne regarding ability and what class would suit them.

Adults are also encouraged to keep fit with us and we have a number of adult classes available. See our website for a timetable.

Throughout the year we aim to:

  • Help dancers achieve personal goals.
  • Create a stage show with lively choreography.
  • Hold a class feis, introducing new dancers to competition.
  • Dance at exhibitions.
  • Enter dancers into feisanna around the country/World
  • Enter dancers for their grades.

Attending the Hackett-Kyne Academy can improve confidence, self-esteem and fitness levels. Everyone here is very friendly and encouraging.
