Performance at Paddy Barry’s Irish Pub & Restaurant

On Friday, March 16, we had a wonderful time performing at Paddy Barry’s Irish Pub & Restaurant. We had a couple of dancers perform with us for the first time, and we were able to showcase our reels, light jigs, slip jigs, and treble reels. We also had a three had reel, a sister two hand reel, and a two hand treble reel! The dancers all did a great job! After we finished our performance, we were able to relax and enjoy the amazing food and music in the pub.

Sunrise Fair Oaks St. Patrick’s Day Party 2018

On Saturday, March 10 we performed at Sunrise Fair Oaks’ St. Patrick’s Day Party. This was a wonderful event for our dancers and we were delighted to entertain the residents. The dancers performed their reels and jigs, and we even had a sister 3-hand dance! Our dancers put on a great performance, but the amazing part was the smiles and energy that they brought to everyone watching. We look forward to more events at Sunrise Fair Oaks and hope to be back soon!

Manasseh Lodge Early St. Patrick’s Day Party & Ceili

Foley Academy had a successful first performance at the Manasseh Lodge Early St. Patrick’s Day party & Ceili. Our dance school performed as a group for the first time, and all of our dancers did a great job! The dancers demonstrated their reel steps and were able to participate in a few Ceili dances hosted by the lodge. The entire Lodge enjoyed the music, dancing, food and the good fun and laughter.  According to the organizer, “It was universally accepted that this was the best party ever given at the Lodge and certainly the first to have live music.” Because there were about 90 people in attendance, the organizer is already looking into a bigger venue for next year’s party. Foley Academy is looking forward to dancing at the 2019 Manasseh Lodge St. Patrick’s Day Party…or maybe even a half way to St. Patrick’s Day party in September!
