Get into the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day during this interactive performance of the ancient art of Irish dancing. You’ll enjoy complimentary scones, tea, and Irish dancing by some of America’s top dancers from the renowned Magennis Academy, Orlando’s premier Irish dance school, as they display this beautiful art form through intricate footwork and vibrancy. Founded in 2020 by Declan Magennis, a former world champion and professional dancer who successfully toured more than 30 countries with the world’s leading Irish dance shows, the Academy boasts dancers that are Top 10 in the nation and have been successfully qualified for the world championships. 

Magennis Academy dancers will perform classic Irish dances before teaching the basics that are sure to impress this St. Patrick’s Day.

Special Note: All attendees will enjoy complimentary scones and tea provided by Nourish Coffee Bar + Kitchen located at the Center for Health & Wellbeing.

This program is presented by Declan Magennis and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in collaboration with Magennis Academy.
