Irish Dance Update

Think that tricky, fast Irish step dancing exists only on a stage with Michael Flatly? Well, you’re wrong! Portland is home to some great Irish dancing. Five years ago we met some students who, along with their teachers, were enthusiastic, energetic, and good enough to compete at the world championships in Ireland! Recently we caught up with them to get an update, and invited them to our studio.
