Sophie Klammer (Germany)
"I've made the biggest improvement in my performance because I've never thought about how to present myself when dancing."
Caitlin Crockard (Canada)
"I've incorporated the Slip Jig drills into many of the classes I teach because although they are Festival style, a lot of the strength required to do them carries over to all kinds of Irish Dance."
