Young dancers from the Roisin Mullins’ Dance Academy recently celebrated the dance school’s first year, as they stepped out to perform for St. Patrick’s Day at the Quay Arts Theatre.
Theatre supporters at the Newport arts centre were treated to a traditional show of Irish dancing, accompanied by live music, played by local Irish musicians. The Brading based academy was established on St. Patrick’s Days, lasy year, by former Lord of the Dance star and UK Champion, Roisin Mullins.
Roisin said: “It has been an incredible first year, there is so much enthusiasm for dance here on the Island. We have achieved so much in such a short time and have created a wonderful sense of team spirit among our dancers. We now have classes running all week in Brading and Ryde, ranging from babies right up to professional adults. We offer all styles of dance, with Irish Dancing being our speciality.
“Already, our young dancers have been winning National Championships, performing full shows and taking part in community events. I am so proud of them all. We have really enjoyed celebrating St. Patrick’s here on the Island with our dancers, and look forward to welcoming more pupils throughout 2019.”
The Roisin Mullins Dance Academy can be seen performing at the Quay Arts Theatre, again
on Sunday, May 12, at 11.30am.
