What people say about us...

 

'I found the class was really fantastic. Something I never experienced before. It felt that the drumming was more than a physical thing and created a lot of energy which worked on many levels. Very enjoyable and delighted to have had this experience. Wonderful teachers too!'

 - Clare Griffin

 

'Drum Dance Ireland exceeded my expectations when facilitating a client networking event. The event was specifically tailored to the audience in question and run in a very professional manner. Using Drum Dance Ireland allowed me to deliver a new and innovative way of networking to my clients and feedback from the event was very positive.'

 - Fiona Leahy, Business Advisor & Training Co-ordinator, Kerry Enterprise Board

 

'It was a great way to release frustration, lovely to go with the flow and the beat of the drums. Will take it up. It made me feel good and be myself.'

 -John O'Brien

 

'Urs has a fantastic approach to teaching music while developing groupwork skills such as listening and co-operation. Our Transition Year students really enjoyed the rhythm based drumming session and are delighted that they can continue the drum cirlce sessions and use it for the 'personal skill' section of the President's Award 'Gaisce'.  Urs had our students stimulated and smiling for the 2hr session he held.  I highly recommend any educational institution to consider using Urs skills to develop students personal and groupwork skills.'

'In May 2011 IGG held a national funday in Thurles to celebrate our Centenary. We had over 6000 members in attendance and one of the most popular activities on the day was the drumming workshops co-facilitated by Drum Dance Ireland. As an activitiy is was a huge success and we know that all the girls who attended the drumming workshops thoroughly enjoyed them and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Drum Dance Ireland, as I found them to be professional, accommodating and extremely helpful at all times.'
