Marty Dowds, company owner of Dowds Irish Dance, in Omaha, NE, started his first Irish step dance class in Derry, Ireland at the age of 9. He was a quick study and really enjoyed dance. Hours of practice and competition after competition he continued to wear out pairs of dance shoes.
In 1993 and 1994 he won his first large competition getting first place at the Ulster Championships and All Ireland Irish Dance Championships in 1993. In 1996 all the previous years of practice paid their dividends. In that year he won 1st place at Scottish Nationals, British Nationals, Ulster, All Ireland, and the World Irish Dance Championships. He also took 1st place in 1997 at the World Irish Dance Championships.
Shortly after winning at Worlds for the last time, he was offered a job dancing with Riverdance and left Ireland to travel the world with the show. In 2003 he was promoted to lead dancer for Riverdance. He finally “retired” from Riverdance in 2010 with the desire to teach what he loves. You will be hard pressed to find someone who is more passionate about dance and especially Irish dance.
Now he will give a free performance complete with dance instruction at UNL, as part of International Education Week 2011, which seeks to celebrate unique and wonderful cultural traditions from around the world. Don't miss out on the fun!
