Molly Kujawa teaches Irish dancing and explains that “Irish dance is for fun, fitness, and friendship” while striving to keep the Irish heritage “alive and flourishing.” Children as young as three years old can start learning Irish step in the “Little Leprechaun” class and may continue taking classes through high school. Kujawa is hopeful to implement an adult class in the near future. Irish dancing is fun-filled and a “great workout.” While Kujawa’s classes do participate in competitions, and students can even qualify for the world championship, Kujawa says that she is primarily a show-based teacher. Irish dance class times vary depending on the student’s age, beginning at 4:30pm on Thursdays, at Perrysburg Dance Academy.
Classes last 30 minutes for the Little Leprechauns and 45 minutes for the soft and hard shoe groups. Exact class times and costs, which are both based on age, can be found on their website perrysburgacademy.com. Questions can be emailed to Kujawa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
