Irish Dance Troupe
Deirdre began dancing at the age of 5. She auditioned for Riverdance in Dublin and performed in Vienna on her first gig with the show at the age of sixteen. After finishing school in 2005 she performed with Riverdance in the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin for the summer. She then went on tour with the show at the age of 18 and toured all over Europe. Some of her personal highlights include performing on front of 1.3 billion people for the Chinese New Year, dancing on front of the Pyramids in Giza Egypt and performing on a stage build outdoors on the sea front in Lebanon Beirut. Deirdre is delighted to be featured in the new Riverdance DVD, Live from Beijing.
In 2009, Deirdre graduated from the University of East London with a BA Hons Degree in Graphic Design and she is the director of Time In Focus Photography, an event photography company specialising in Irish Dance.
