Five Fun Classes To Try Out This Summer

Brian Dillon

I don’t know about you, but summertime gives me a burst of energy that I don’t get any other time of the year. The days are brighter and longer, so it’s the perfect time of year to try something new, tick things off your bucket list and have loads of fun at the same time.

So here are five fun classes you can try out this summer.

1. Street Jazz Class With Conor Davis

Street Jazz is a combination of modern dance and classic jazz. It’s funky, energetic, and so much fun.

Taking place at Dance House on Foley Street, Conor Davis, who was professionally trained in Stella Mann College in the UK, teaches this beginner-level street jazz class. Attendees learn general technique and choreography at an easy pace. 

So whether you already love to dance, or it’s something you think you might want to get into, this class is great fun all the same.

Classes take place every Thursday from 8pm til 9pm. You can pay €12 for a drop-in class, or €60 for six consecutive classes. To find out more, click here.
