This year’s ‘Gluren bij de Buren’ festival took place on Sunday 5th of September. It was outdoors, and the performance of the Kilkenny Dancers was hosted by Stadstuin Emma’s Hof in The Hague. It was a gorgeous day full of sunshine, and some of the audience were so impressed by the Kilkenny Dancers that they stayed for all three sessions!
This year’s Embassy Festival was an online festival. Like previous years, the Kilkenny School of Irish Dance was asked to participate, and the performance was filmed by the filmmakers of the Embassy Festival in front of the Hofvijver and Binnenhof in The Hague. Please check out the performance on the Festival’s website.
We were also featured in the ‘Haagsche Courant’ newspaper!
The KSID dancers came together while social distancing at home, for a virtual performance on King’s Day. Many thanks to Laura Lundy for the choreography and to Aiobhin Quinn for editing. Music credit: Yvonne Fahy – Isolation.
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.

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.
We hope to see you this coming weekend (3rd February) at the Feel @ Home festival in The City Hall The Hague.
Our dancers will perform at 13:45 and if you would like to join in we hope to see you at 14:30 @ the central Park.
