The Complete Irish Dance Program for Preschoolers

Jump’n Jig is an Irish Dance Preschool Program designed by Fiona Holmes ADCRG & BAED to help preschoolers develop coordination, self-esteem & social skills through dance, music, and play.

The program is divided into three levels to ensure classes can be modified for children of different ages and gross motor skills development. The three levels of Jump’n Jig are:

  • Baby Jig (ages 2 to 3)

  • Tiny Jig (ages 3 to 4)

  • Mini Jig (ages 5 to 6)

For your convenience, classes being offered mornings, afternoons, & weekends.

All Jump’n Jig licensed studios are run by qualified Irish Dance teachers, and have current working with children and police checks, to ensure your child is in good hands.

Céad Míle Fáilte!

The Shannon Irish Dance Academy is proud to perpetuate the traditions and culture of Ireland in Rochester Hills, Michigan. We are the only accredited school with certified Irish dance instructors through the World Irish Dance Association in northern Oakland County.

We believe that anyone can learn Irish dance regardless of age or level and as such, offer classes for students aged 2 years old to adults and everyone in between. We believe in teaching self-confidence, teamwork, discipline, respect for others, and grace under pressure; skills that will carry on in all facets of life. Our welcoming team of dancers, families, and teachers help to develop a strong sense of community and lasting friendships.

Shannon offers both competitive and performance programs in this traditional art form that has come to us from across the Atlantic. Dancers in our programs are given unique opportunities to compete and perform, not only nationally, but around the world. We provide each dancer with the means and support needed to compete and perform at the peak of their ability. It is our balanced approach to solo, performance, and team dancing that leads our dancers to their greatest successes on and off the dance floor.
