I began dancing at the age of four years old at a local irish dance school encouraged by my mother who is a highland dance teacher. So I guess you can say I had the best of both worlds.

 I grew up performing in various shows and competing all over the province. I won titles such as Northern Ireland Champion and Ulster Champion for 15 years and many other local titles in festival irish dance.

 I have danced in many key venues within the province such as the Waterfront Hall, the Odyssey, Ulster Hall and Opera House and also further afield at International Folklore Festivals touring Spain, France, America, Portugal, Holland and Canary Islands dancing lead role.

I danced with National Dance Company of Ireland, Rhythm of the dance for three years touring Europe, the USA, Mexico, Russia and Israel. I have performed for many celebrities including Prince Andrew at the VJ day celebrations. My most memorable occasion while touring was performing with Dolly Parton during a residency at Dollywood, Tennessee.

Finally I decided to return home and open my dance school Jordan Academy.

I love teaching children to dance and feel honoured to be able to give something back from the lessons and experiences I have learnt along the way.
