Not only is MacConmara’s Irish dance team preparing for upcoming St. Patrick’s Day celebrations throughout the Summit County, Ohio; Stark County, Ohio; and Portage County, Ohio areas, but those not a part of Celtic Storm will be participating in a dance workshop led by Irish dance instructor Marcus Maloney in just a few weeks. Plus, one of MacConmara’s own students will be heading to Orlando in mid-February to show off his skills at the NAFC Championships! Tyler will be competing in this prestigious dance competition while Teresa Seeman-Buck, one of MacConmara’s experienced teachers, will be helping to run the event.
