Heritage Irish Stepdancers
In 1983, Molly Bennett, who was then part of an Irish traditional band called St. James' Gate in San Antonio, Texas, met Colm and Eimer Maoileidigh, two teenagers from Ireland at a party her band wasplaying for. Colm and Eimer were looking for students to be in the Irish dance classes they were just starting, so Molly signed up her daugher Ariel. Three months later, she signed up her daughter Alexa, and three months after that she decided that , since she was driving forty-five minutes each wasy for class, she might as well take it, too. And so their stepdancing story began!
