The Carey Academy is very excited to announce it now has branches in Russia!!! John has been to Ufa and Yekaterinburg earlier this year where he gave workshops to approximately 50 students age ranges 10 - 40!! There are regular classes in Ufa, Samara, Tolyatti, Kazan, Izhevsk, Magnitogorsk and Chelyabinsk. Teachers from the staff here will be travelling over on a regular basis to check on progress and teach new choreography and techniques which can then be passed on in the local towns.
John said " It is wonderful to see Irish Dancing and culture alive and thriving in Russia. I am very excited to be involved in the developing stages of this art form in this part of the World and I see a great future for Irish Dancing in Russia."
Already plans are made for another workshop in Ufa in January and for a feis and Irish Cultural event in Yekaternburg in February.
