Molly Curran, TCRG
After 4 years of ballet and jazz, Molly began Irish dancing at the age of 8. She instantly fell in love with the dynamic and challenging aspects of the cultural art form. Through hard work, dedication, and passion, Molly has competed and placed in several international competitions including the prestigious World Irish Dancing Championships, the North American Irish Dancing Championships, and All-Ireland Dancing Championships. She represented the Mid-Atlantic Region as a 7-time World Qualifier.
Aside from competition, Molly has had the opportunity to perform in prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall and the Kimmel Center along with notable Irish musicians including The Cheiftans, Cherish the Ladies, Anthony Kearns, Eileen Ivers, and James Patterson to name a few.
Molly looks forward to teaching and sharing her excitement and enthusiasm of Irish dance with children of all ages. She hopes that her students will have the chance to enjoy the benefits of friendship, fitness, and fun!
