Learn how to jive with lessons from the master at St Patrick’s Hall in Keady

Have you ever wanted to learn to jive? Well, here’s your chance to trip the light fantastic and turn heads, all at the same time.

Professional dance teacher and nine-time All Ireland dance champion Gerard Butler will be bringing his classes to St Patrick’s Hall in Keady next week.

They will start on March 23 at 8.30pm and will run for four Wednesday nights.

Gerard, a native of Co Roscommon who now lives with his family in Co Tyrone, has been teaching dance for over 25 years.

His love of music and dance was instilled by his father Seamus and late mother Lila.

At a young age his father taught him ceili and set dancing while he learnt social dancing from his mother.

Gerard began teaching dancing at the age of 17 and since then has passed on his skills and knowledge to generations of enthusiastic beginners.

As well as arranging dance weekends in different parts of Ireland, he features regularly on RTE and BBC and often co-choreographs the dance segment on Ryan Tubridy’s The Late Late Country Show.

Alternatively, just turn up on the night as there is no requirement to book.
