Irish Dancing Presented at The Belle Isle Library

Begorrah, and if it’s a fine bit o’ Irish culture you’re after, the Belle Isle Library will have you dancing in step in no time. 

Come to the Belle Isle Library, 5501 N. Villa, on Saturday, April 24 from 2:00 to 3:00p.m. for a presentation of Irish Dancing from the Hill Irish Dance School. 

Jean Hill, who studied intensively under former Lord of the Dance lead dancer, Kristin Butke, opened Hill Irish Dance School, formerly Irish Arts Oklahoma, in 1998.

“We’re pretty excited about bringing this free performance to our library customers,” said librarian Ann Meeks.  “Since the great success of the Broadway show ‘Riverdance’ Irish dancing has become very popular.  It can be pretty complicated, and I think the people who come to our show will be pleased with how well the student dancers perform.”

Irish Dancing from the Hill Irish Dance School is free, open to the public and suitable for all ages.  To learn more about the program, please call the library at 843-9601.  For more information about this or any Metropolitan Library System program, visit the MLS website, www.metrolibrary.org.
