Thursday, 10/11/2018 | 05:15PM-06:15PMNo instructor assigned Rye-Rye Rec Center
Novice level is for children who have completed 1 year in our Advanced Beginner Level. At this point it is important to try to attend Summer Camp and if you are unable to attend camp it is advised that a few brush up lessons be taken before September with one of our senior students to make sure they are ready for class (see #3 for more information). At a minimum, dancers entering the Novice class level should be fluent in 4 Light Jig steps, 2 Reel steps, 2 Slip Jig steps, and at least the 1st hard shoe Jig step and preferable the 2nd step as well. This is in addition to their skips, seven’s and over-the-logs. Dancers moving into PW 1 are required to be fluent in: 4 light jigs, 4 reel steps, 2 slip jig steps, 2 treble jig steps danced to the fast music, 2 hornpipe steps danced to the fast music, and the traditional set St. Patricks Day. Children will have learned a lot in their Novice year so it is important that they are up to speed when entering PW1 level in September! Going into Prizewinner 2 dancers are required to know, in addition to the requirements for PW1, the 3 prelim reel steps, and 3 slow treble jig steps.
