Gluren bij de Buren Festival Den Haag, 9 February 2020

On the 9th of February 2020 dancers from the Kilkenny School of Irish Dance performed during the ‘Gluren bij de Buren’ Festival in The Hague. ‘Gluren bij de Buren’ translates to ‘Peeking in on the neighbours’. During this festival people open their houses and turn their living rooms into small stages, for an afternoon of performances (music, dance, theatre etc). Members of the public then walk around the town and select which performances they would like to see. We held three sessions of Irish Dancing, and had a full living room with over 30 guests for each session.

St Patrick Day 2019

From our smallest Beginners to our World Qualifiers, team Kilkenny brought the house down with their performance at the St. Patrick’s Day Festival on the Grote Markt in The Hague. It’s wonderful to see The Hague embracing the Irish culture, and it is a highlight for both dancers and teachers every year.

Thanks to the Irish Club Netherlands and the Grote Markt for organzing and hosting such a fantastic event. We are already looking forward to next year’s performance.
