Agnes is a member of the big group “Stockholm Irish Dancers”, and has recently started a smaller group together with two other dancers, in which the Irish dance will be combined with live Irish music. The goal with the dancing is for Agnes to have fun, and to do good performances on stage. The dance and the Irish culture are big parts of Agnes’ life, with training, meeting dancing friends and having fun at Irish pubs! Her favourite dance is the Slip Jig. When answering the question how it feels to be member number 100, Agnes says it feels good to finally have joined the Nordic Society of Irish Dancers. We wish her very welcome to the society!
