The Flying Irish did a great job for an audience of over 70 people! There were so many dancers of  a variety of ages, and each dance was unique! The dancers were all so talented, and the crowd especially loved the rhythm of the hardshoe jigs. For many parents, it was a great way to introduce their children to the art of Irish Dance; kids loved seeing the dancers leaping across the stage. Everyone had a nice time, and it was a fun way to kick-off the St. Patrick's Day weekend. We would love to have the Flying Irish perform again!

"The Flying Irish Dancers have become a welcomed tradition at Great Wolf Lodge New England by our guests and pack members for our annual St. Patrick's Day celebration year after year. Mary-Sarah is well organized and professional and her dancers are a delight with their fast foot work and smiles that just don't quit. We look forward to their return every year!"
