TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- How up are you on your Irish dancing? 'Tis the season and sisters Maureen Collins and Mary Lynn Collins-Callanan, founder and artistic director, respectively, of Tarrytown-based LYNN Academy couldn't be busier.
Their troupes are booked this month at Sleepy Hollow High School, Harlem Yacht Club, Attria Senior Living, Fiddler’s Green in Stamford and the Tarrytown, Stamford and Greenwich parades.
And that's just for starters.
The school, 15 years old and counting, features a wide range of students and ages and you don't have to be Irish to take part. Mary Lynn Collins says the school has a wonderful mix of nationalities, boys and girls ranging in age from three to 21.
As for lessons on how to do a quick Irish jig? She says: Get your back nice and straight, arms by your side, go high on your toes and keep a consistent bounce with a leg up and down every once in a while and you should be able to “wow” some friends!
