Riverdance group visited St. John’s International School
Riverdance is in Belgium for a series of performances
The world-famous Riverdance group visited St. John’s International School
in Waterloo yesterday. Riverdance is in Belgium for a series of performances
and St. John’s, with the help of the Irish Ambassador, invited the group for a
visit to the school.
The dancers conducted workshops for the 50 Elementary School students who
are part of the after-school Irish dancing program. The students had the time of
their life while they were divided into groups of 3-4 and learned from the experts.
After the workshops, the group held a demonstration in the theater, which was
packed with 400 Elementary and Middle School children who were in awe with
the talent of the dancers.
Since being founded in 1964, St. John’s has consistently been recognised as
one of the leading international schools in Belgium. Situated in Waterloo, we
offer an international education to more than 900 students from over 60 countries.
Students between the ages of 3 to 19 are encouraged to reach their full potential
in a caring, family orientated environment which is attentive to individual needs.
