KATHY WHITFIELD, Irish Dance Instructor - Kathy has been step dancing for over 20 years, the first ten of those in competition, where she competed in numerous feiseanna (Irish dance competition) and reached the Championship Level. Having watched many interested students leave Irish dancing because they wanted a less intense experience than that provided by competitive schools, as well as many adults frustrated by the tradition of excluding adults from step dance instruction, she started Rince Na Saor in 1997 as a means for students of all ages to study Irish dance in a more relaxed, recreational environment.
