Siobhan was so fun and patient. She dances so well and was so excited to share some of her passion with us. Love this!

Siobhan is a great teacher and dancer! She was skilled at tailoring the dance class to our abilities. I learnt so much in the lesson, and even got to film myself so I can practice again at home (for my next ceilidh). Would 100% recommend this for anyone interested in Irish dancing and culture.

I was able to get into this class as the first vacation activity during my visit in Galway, Ireland. Siobhán was a great and talented dance instructor, and you will learn a lot about the basic forms of Irish Riverdance. Plus, she’s a sweetheart and a kind soul. Definitely try this out, even if dancing isn’t your thing. Just be prepared for a workout (but a fun one with great Irish music to listen to for motivation). Glad I stumbled upon this listing!

You NEED to try this! I will remember this experience forever. If you love Riverdance, this will especially be memorable for you. Siobhán makes the class fun, engaging, and accessible. She’ll gladly make videos and take photos. Couldn’t ask for a better time!

I'd give a million stars if I could. Síobhan makes it easy for beginners and more advanced dancers alike to jump in. Lots of opportunities for photos and videos. our host was an absolute delight to learn from. for fans of Riverdance, it will be a dream come true. certainly was for me! I was able to ask questions about the show and share my enthusiasm. Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Thanks a million Síobhan!
