Miss Trish, Younger Beginners

Miss Trish has been teaching the Flying Irish's littlest dancers since 2015. Originally from West Cork, Ireland, Trish did competitive Irish Dance in the Boston area as a way to stay in touch with her Irish roots. She gets endless delight from watching her dancers learn about her heritage through Irish Dance.
