Reaching New Heights Academy

WHO IS THE ACADEMY FOR?

To provide full value, all dancers from the age of 12+ can join the academy. All we ask is that you have already mastered the basic skills required to become a dancer and that you are now ready to take it to the next level. For dancers below 12, a beginner course will be developed in the future so that you can learn the foundational skills required when it is your time to step up and join the academy.

Please note that the course does not qualify you to work as a dancer/teacher; rather, it only makes you an exceptional one.

DOES THIS COURSE WORK ALONGSIDE MY CURRENT DANCE CLASS?

Yes, absolutely. The fitness training that you will undergo has been designed to work perfectly alongside your current dance classes to make up the perfect training programme for a dancer. In fact, in the early weeks of the academy, we will help you design your weekly training schedule so that you can be sure to fit everything in and still have sufficient recovery days in place.

WHAT IF IT IS NOT FOR ME?

RNH has no interest in being paid for something we bring no value to. The academy is designed with the sole purpose of providing you with world-class training & education so that you can get world-class results. However, if you feel we offer you no significant value, you will always have the option to leave the academy at any stage.

HOW THE ACADEMY WORKS

Once you register for this program, you will input your username and password and automatically be greeted by your student dashboard along with your welcome and overview videos by Lauren. These videos will explain in detail the training and education you are about to undergo over the next 6 months. Your student dashboard will be your homepage, thus allowing you to check your progress and how much of the course is yet to be completed. You will also be able to see the number of active members and how close you are to graduate alongside everyone else.

As you know, the course is divided into three training phases:

Phase 1 – General preparation phase
Phase 2 – Specific preparation phase 1a
Phase 3 – Specific preparation phase 1b

It is well-known in the strength and conditioning world that the most effective way to train an athlete for optimal performance is to progress through the three training phases listed above.

The aim of phase 1 (8 weeks) is to provide you with a solid foundation on which we can build upon in the later phases. The GP phase is to make sure you possess a very high level of general aerobic fitness, strength, mobility and flexibility as well as a basic understanding of nutrition. This is important because each training phase is used as a springboard for you to learn the other phases other phases feeds the next one and so in order to learn the other phases.Phase 2 & 3 are specific training phases. That is, they are specific to the requirements of an Irish dancer. While phase 1 training is based on general fitness, phase 2 and 3 are tailored exactly to dancers’ needs, thus allowing you to train the correct energy systems and muscle actions used in our sport. This also means that you can be faster and stronger on stage for longer periods!

LEARNING TIME

Each dancer is recommended to set aside 2-3 hours for the practical training each week and up to 1 hour for theory learning. The total course time each week will be around 3-4 hours per week.
