Saint Paul Irish Dancers
Founder of St. Paul Irish Dancers, Eileen Dahill, parlayed a 1993 Minnesota Folk Arts grant into establishing St. Paul Irish Dancers. St. Paul Irish Dancers is a hearty Irish Stew of step dancing, figure work, and choreography that has evolved to becoming a Minnesota gateway to Irish culture through dance. In celebrating their 20th year of Irish dance they are proudest of expanding performances regionally in the 5 state area. They are known for their collaborative percussive work with tap and flamingo artists and travel regionally with the Ring of Kerry Band. Some "pit stops" this year have included the Paramount Theater in St. Cloud, the Get Lucky half marathon, St. Paul Irish Dancer's annual show, the Rhythm in the River in Jackson, Minnesota and now at Irish Fair of Minnesota.
