Lauren’s Visit to Dance Ireland

What Dance Ireland had to say…

“We, in Dance Ireland, were delighted to have Lauren in with us visiting with Ballet Ireland in our DanceHouse studios. The ballet dancers really enjoyed having her in to watch morning class and their rehearsal. They don’t often have visitors so having Lauren in was a treat for them as well – especially when they received a joyous reaction from Lauren watching all they were doing!” Jeanette Keane, Dance Ireland

What Lauren’s Mum had to say…

“The morning we spent in Dance Ireland was lovely. Lauren got to meet the dancers in Ballet Ireland and it was great to be up and personal with them all…. I think we all enjoyed it not just Lauren. To see the ballerinas up so close and the work and effort they put in was amazing. We got to watch both traditional dance and contemporary. Lauren is now practicing her pirouettes!”
