We are SO EXCITED to be hosting this amazing opportunity for Irish dancers of all organizations!

The lead dancer from Riverdance, Lauren Smyth  is thrilled to bring her inspiring workshops to dancers all across America and she will be here in Dayton OH on June 26, 2019 at the American Czech Club 922 Valley St Dayton OH.  

This workshop will be focusing on technique, drills and all things competition, which will help dancers understand what it takes to become a great competitor as well as what is required to maintain that standard throughout a dancers career.

The Festival style Slip Jig workshop will incorporate all aspects of performance and stage presence, ensuring that each and every dancer leaves feeling more confident in themselves and their abilities.

Lauren is also passionate about telling her story of perseverance and self-belief to inspire the next generation of dancers to follow their dreams and believe that anything is possible.
