Silvia Linder gives introductory Irish Dancing lessons with support from Anne Murphy and the Emerald Dancers. The emphasis is on soft shoe dances. Frequent workshops with the Emerald Dancers and guest dancers such as Shane Ryan.
Silvia started dancing with the Emerald Dancers in 1998 (??) and has therefore been able to take part in workshops with many of the Teachers in germany organised by the group. The interest in dancing in Freising (just outside munich) is equally large and it did not take much time to find enough people to put together dance classes.
The group performes regularly in and around Munich. A highlight is the show "The Fairy Tree" which they put together with Bobby Homeier, and which still is being performed by the group.
Many of the Emerald Dancers recently took in a fairly mamoth act their An Coimisiún Grade examinations with Dr. John Cullinane.
Silvia has reached An Coimisiún - Grade 5 to date.
