ShamRock’n Dance Club!

This is a special 6th grade ONLY tradition at all Dublin middle schools!

Four evenings during the month of February you’ll meet in the gym at Karrer, Grizzell, Davis or Sells Middle School for really fun dance lessons - from classic dance steps to the newest group and line dances –with a professional dance instructor! You will also learn dance and social etiquette and have a great time while doing it! After the lessons are done, there is a Dance Party where you’ll get to dress up, have snacks and cake, and show off your new dance moves while having fun with friends. If you can’t go to a lesson with your school, you can easily make-up a class at another middle school. Ask any 7th or 8th grader about the ShamRock’n Dance Club and they’ll share stories of the awesome memories they have made!
