FAQ

Frequently asked questions

 

  • I can’t be present on all days. Can I still participate in the summer school and how much would it cost?
  • The summer school is priced as an entity, and there are no separate day or class fees available.
     

  • I have never tried Irish dancing but I would want to start. Can I participate in the summer school?
  • The summer school participants are expected to know at least the basics of Irish dancing. Unfortunately, the schedule will not include classes for complete beginners.
     

  • I want to attend the summer school classes but I will arrange my own accommodation and meals. What would it cost to participate in the classes only?
  • This summer the summer school has two separate package prices: one for the programme (classes, dinners and social activities) and another for the accommodation (accommodation only).

    The participants may choose either or both according to their individual needs. The package prices are complete as such and cannot be divided in smaller units, although we offer the possibility to book the accommodation for an extra night (Sun-Mon) for an additional fee. Naturally, we cannot force anyone e.g. to join the dinners should they want to dine elsewhere.
     

  • What do I need to bring with me to the summer school?
  • Exercise gear to wear in dance class, soft shoes, and heavy shoes. It is also a good idea to bring dance sneakers because there will be plenty of dancing and your feet will likely get tired. For the ballet classes, no special shoes are needed, socks are enough. It’s also good to have a towel and a water bottle with you in the classes.

    Otherwise, pack weather-appropriately, because the summer school programme includes some outdoors activities (maybe even dancing outdoors) and at least some walking between the accommodation venue and dance studios. Linens are provided by the accommodation venue.

    In addition to all this, bring happy dance spirit 🙂
     

  • Can I choose my summer school roommate?
  • During registration, you can request 1 roommate and we will do our best to accommodate all requests.
     

  • I have small children and I’d like to bring them with me to the summer school. They won’t attend classes but they’d stay in the accommodation with me. Is this possible and how much would it cost?
  • The summer school has a busy schedule so we recommend that you leave your children at home. This way you can enjoy the summer school to the fullest. However, if there is space in the summer school accommodation after the reservations for the participants have been accounted for, the extra beds can be booked for the accommodation-only fee.
     

  • Does the summer school have an age limit?
  • The minimum age for participants is 13 years. There is no maximum age limit.
     

  • My underage child wants to participate in the summer school. Does s/he need to have a parent/guardian with him/her for the duration of the summer school? Can the parent/guardian also stay in the summer school accommodation and what would it cost?
  • Underage participants should bring a written participation consent signed by a parent/guardian. The camp organisers do not require underage participants to have their parent/guardian with them for the duration of the summer school. The summer school accommodation is reserved primarily to the participants but if there is space in the summer school accommodation after the reservations for the participants have been accounted for, the extra beds can be booked for the accommodation-only fee.
     

  • I don’t dance with inSpiral Dance Company. Can I still participate?
  • Yes, you can! However, check with your own teacher that it is ok for you to participate, especially if your school is associated with CLRG.
