Full Spectrum Céilí
AuSM is pleased to partner with North Star Irish Dance to offer this fall social skills class.
Céilí (pronounced ‘kaylee’) is Irish social dancing. The ancestor of American square and contra dancing, céilí dancing is done in groups with repetitive patterns. These social events are a fun way to learn, practice, and integrate skills like joint attention, eye contact, and short-term memory. This class will intentionally point out opportunities for these skills while learning 3-4 Irish céilí dances. Purchase of Irish dance shoes NOT required - wear clean athletic shoes and loose clothing. You can make the dancing as intense as you want!
This class will be taught by Beth Pitchford who is the director of North Star Irish Dance, an Irish step dance school located in Eden Prairie and in Northfield. Pitchford also is an AuSM therapist. She is excited to combine two of her biggest passions: working within the autism community and Irish dance!
The class is made possible in part because of a grant from the Irish Music and Dance Association.
Class meets on Saturdays from 1-2:30 p.m.
