Exhibition: Leaders in Our Irish Dance Community

The 2019 IMDA Honors event presented by the Irish Music and Dance Association recognized three women who helped lead a surge in Irish dance participation in the late 1970s and helped drive that energy through to today. Our exhibition celebrates these remarkable leaders: Jenny Bach, Mary McNeive and Sheila Jordan.

Physical exhibition located in the upper mezzanine hallway outside the McKiernan Library at The Celtic Junction.
