24 Hour Take Over

We've invited our members do be part of DI 24 Hour Instagram Take Over. These take overs will give you a look at what our DI Members are up to and where their career is taking them!

Taking over 27 - 28 March we have Olwyn Lyons!

Olwyn's rapid fire question round responsed:

Most memorable dance moment: Performing in Sibéal Davitt's high tempo dance work, ' Surrender Navigation' at International Women's day as part of The Five Lamps Arts Festival. I will never forget the sense of connection I felt dancing on stage with 3 other strong, fierce performers that I admire.

What music gets you in your dancing zone: I listen to all genres  but I do always come back to rnb and hip hop tunes. I love a good,  strong beat. 

How many dance classes to you teach a week (on average): I teach at least 12 classes per week. I love how my varied job can be. My students range from 4 years young up to 99 years!

First time you remember dancing: As for most people my dancing days started with ballet. I have clear memories of prancing around the kitchen at home in my tutu and I thought it was the best thing ever! 

When did you know this was the career for you: I always knew I would end up working in a creative field. Even when I was young it was always performance,  art and drama that I was passionate about.
