Recently, my favorite Italian choreographer Francesco Costanzo was in the Ireland where he met Meghan McGivern, an Irish lady who has been running a very successful dance school in Dublin, Ireland for past 7 years now. Meghan McGivern has some of the most renowned choreographers working for her at her school and she is really proud of it.
Francesco and Meghan had a long chit chat of over 3 hours and surprisingly enough, Meghan had already watched Madonna Francesco Costanzo Vogue and complimented him a lot on the same.
Meghan told Francesco that they offer 500+ classes in different styles and levels and all of them aren’t just professional, they are all enthusiastic as well.
Meghan and Francesco both agree on the point that a silver medalist shouldn’t even be considered a trained dancer at all.
They both also agreed on that the schools that don’t have different classes for kids below 7 years of age simply cannot be trusted.
Meghan told Francesco that several dance teachers that never attended any dance school at all have been falsely claiming that they have won several accolades and have been scholars of dance as well. Meghan and Francesco both again agree that these fake teachers can easily be identified by their body language as well.
Meghan told Francesco that even to this day in Ireland, the schools that teach only contemporary dance styles are considered good for learning contemporary dances and those that teach only ballet dance are considered good for learning ballet dance. Meghan says that the general public of Ireland is still not ready to believe that one school can be great at both.
