With the covid 19 situation all businesses including Irish dance teachers and schools have had to think outside the box and work on different formats to continue to pass on the tradition of Irish dance and culture to the next generation of dancers in their care. Initally, classes were completely closed, online irish dance classes via zoom and other online platforms developed followed by the welcome news that irish dance training could recommence outdoors. Many hoped it would the outdoors would bring us some form of normaility, the return of so many dancers to their Irish dance classes - and it did! Delighted to be reunited with their classmates at their outdoor training session Irish dancers everywhere are back in action! As teachers, we are thrilled to be able to see you all in person again, chat to you and watch you dance to your hearts content!
With the return of outdoor sports including irish dancing, families everywhere are getting out and about and activitely reengaging with all the various activities with great interest and so for us here at Moffatt school of Irish dancing we welcome all new dancers and their families into our class. It is wonderful to see, the smiling faces of children each week and watch them progress and improve at their new sport. New friendships are been made, new champions are in the making, the tradition is safe and well continuing to be passed on to the next generation in a fun envoirnment. Cead mile failte to all our new children across north and west Mayo!
As restrictions ease we look forward with great hope of the return to our classes in all our indoor venues with one or two new venues been added to our weekly schedule. September 2021, fingers crossed will see so many doors for all Irish dancers re open.
