Derianna Thomas runs Tyneside Irish Dance, where there are classes for all ages and abilities.
Classes are taught in the Festival style of Irish dance started in Northern Ireland, and are attended by people of all dance backgrounds, whether that’s Feis, Ballet, Tap, or being brand new to dance. This is a great place to find a fun and friendly community to practise Irish Dance without competition. You can find regular updates @tynesideirishdance on Facebook and Instagram, and more details on their website.
