"Rinceoiri Gaelacha na Machairi Arda" performs both solo and ceili dances. The first Irish Dance group in Lubbock, Texas, RGMA was formed in late spring of 2001 and saw it's first public performance less than two months later. They operate under the direction of Kathleen Finley, member of the Irish Dance Teachers Association of North America. They currently host classes for 43 students, and have two performance companies. The dancers have performed at various venues, including the Lubbock Arts Festival, Texas Tech University's Celtic Christmas, Lubbock's 4th on Broadway Celebration, The Cactus Theatre, and are returning for thier 3rd year at the Amarillo Celtic Festival. This is not a competitive dance group; their mission is to preserve the traditional style of Irish solo and ceili dance that has been passed on for many years and is a vital aspect of living Irish culture. "It is our hope to keep the Irish dance tradition alive by never letting it become stagnant, yet always remaining connected to it's origins. Above all, we strive to share the joy of Irish dancing with our families, friends, and spectators."
