St. Patrick’s marks 2nd anniversary for Irish dancers

1 min read

13 twinkle-toed dancers from the Roisin Mullins Dance Academy, took to the floor at Newport’s Quay Arts, to mark St. Patrick’s Day recently.

The celebration on Sunday 15th March, saw the dancers give a display of incredible Irish Dancing to a host of top tunes. Aged 2 to 11, the Ryde and Brading based dancers, were cheered on by a crowd of merry revellers, keen to watch them form the Riverdance line.

In a double celebration, the event also saw the 2nd anniversary of the dance school on the island.

Since opening in March 2018, the local dancers have racked up countless National awards, as well as performing at an array of local events.

Troupe teacher Roisin said of the celebrations, ‘It was wonderful to see our dancers perform at such a special time of year, and bring joy to others. In uncertain times, it was a great opportunity for our dancers and their families get together, celebrate and enjoy themselves. At such young ages, they have certainly surpassed any expectation I could have had two years ago, and are truly talented. I am incredibly proud of all of them. We have had a super St. Patrick’s and a terrific two years.’
