Youth Ballet West in Galway


  • 'The energy radiating from the girls sitting in a semi-circle in the rehearsal room of Corrib Dance Academy in the city’s Briarhill Business Park could power the national grid. The young ballet dancers from Galway are graceful and talented – and determined to make a career in the tough world of professional dancing.' Connaught Tribune - Judy Murphy meets young ballet students who hope to make a career in dance 19 August 2011
  • 'Youth Ballet West performed at the National University of Ireland, Galway Alumni Awards Gala in 2011 and was the jewel in the crown of our entertainment for the night. The young dancers charmed our guests with their beautifully choreographed pieces. The company was particularly applauded for its flair for performance, versatility and a maturity usually the preserve of professionals. I would recommend that YBW be considered for similar occasions.'
