From the traditional celli to the modern variations on the step dance concocted by Michael Flatley for his hit show “Riverdance,” much of the charm of Irish culture is conveyed through dance.
To check out Irish dance in Oklahoma, come to the Del City Library, 4509 S.E. 14th Street, on Monday, March 11 at 6:00p.m.for Irish Folk Dancing as performed by event co-sponsor the Oklahoma Academy of Irish Dance. The program is free and open to the public.
“We’re so familiar with elements of Irish culture from movies and books,” said librarian Lindsay Egle, “but we don’t get that many chances to experience Irish dance in person. That’s what makes this program so exciting.”
