Using both traditional styles alongside new innovative steps and concepts though feis and workshops from international world champions and experts, we access the latest teaching concepts by being part of large global organisation, WIDA (World Irish Dance Association).
WIDA has membership in over 23 countries with an aim to encourage those who have an interest or a history in Irish Dance, and to assist in teaching the next generation of teachers & dancers no matter where that may be in the world.
This way of teaching allows students to move up through their levels & progress along through an easy to follow system, not reliant on children competing in competitions to “grade out” of their current class, and simple accessible uniform requirements mean children are able to participate fully, regardless of their financial background.
Students can easily elect to do grade exams to move up through their levels, or competitions, or both!
Our students have opportunities to dance at events in Melbourne & at local displays, festivals, corporate events & community days.
Forget what you’ve seen on TV about expensive dresses, here at the Artz Collective, Altona North’s only Irish dance school, competitions are completely optional & a simple class uniform which is part of your Monthly Tuition Package and your dancing shoes is all that’s required to participate in any and all of our exams, feis (competitions) festival performances and events.
From our tiny preschool dancers up through our teenage dancers to our adult irish dance students, all ages are welcome at the Artz Collective. And we actively encourage everyone to have a go.
