First-year Engineering student Erin Murphy has found a way to continue Irish dancing at the University by practicing in the Memorial Gym studio and traveling to Warrenton to meet with an instructor. 

Competing on a global scale

Throughout first semester, first-year Engineering student Erin Murphy has balanced adjusting to a new social environment and the challenges of higher level classes with daily practices for regional, national and global Irish dancing competitions. Murphy, who was influenced by her dad’s side of the family, began Irish dancing at the age of five and has continued for 13 years. “My dad’s side of the family is really Irish, so when my dad was a kid, all my aunts Irish danced,” Murphy said.
