Porter Ridge Students enjoy Irish Heritage Performance

Mrs. Jennifer Licko shows students some Irish dance steps.

The students and faculty at Porter Ridge Elementary were treated to outstanding performances by Jennifer Licko, a Celtic Folk singer, dancer and instrumentalist. The students listened to examples of Irish music and were given background on some of the typical Irish folk instruments, such as the penny whistle and Bodhran [drums]. Students also enjoyed Irish dance demonstrations by Mrs. Licko, as well as information about Ireland and the culture of Ireland. Students participated in the performance after a brief introduction to Irish dance and musical instruments.
