I have been irish dancing since the age of 8 for Maggie Townsend, located in Leatherhead, Surrey. During my life of Irish Dancing I have competed in numerous feis’ at Regional, National and International level, competing in several countries such as the United Kingdom, Ireland and the U.S.A. Wold Class Choreographer Richard Griffin joined our school teaching line joining Maggie Lynch, and since then our school has, as well as competing, become a performing arts dance school named “Ginger Step Dance Company” (GSDC) ”, performing at weddings and events around St. Patricks Day. The GSDC also created a school production of Irish Dance called Celtic Breeze, where I played a minor lead name “Young” Ronan.
CELTIC DANCE COMPANY LONDON
I am currently a performer and assistant manager for Celtic Dance Company. I have been involved with the CDC dancers under the direction of Rachel Downey, choreographer and Dance Captain.
Toured: IRELAND, CZECH REPUBLIC, POLAND, MONGOLIA,CHINA, RUSSIA, SPAIN and GERMANY
For the last 4 years I have been touring with GFD Promotions. All the shows within this company have been under the control of famous singers Michael Durkan and Peter Corry. The Dance Co-ordinator is world famous choreographer Richard Griffin, so with this team of Directors they have managed to secure work in over 3 continents.
The experience of these show have taught me how to perform to large audiences with the added pressure of wearing microphones. This allows the show to change, keeping the dancers on their feet!
