About Irish Dancing Physical Fitness

For those of you who do not already know me, my name is Peter O’Grady, and I am the founder of and lead educator in Irish Dancing Physical Fitness, as well as Author & Creator of an Irish Dance Trainer CPD course, the Upping Your Step training manual and training DVD’s for Irish dancing. I too was an Irish dancer in my younger years and, as all of you dancing fanatics know, it is very hard to leave it behind!

My knowledge and experience

I know I’m getting old when I can say that I have been working within the health and fitness industry for more than a decade now! It has been an exciting journey to say the least. I have managed leisure centres, built my own gymnasiums and now I own a private office in Ballina, Co. Mayo, Ireland where I work as a GP referral and sports therapist. I have been working with Irish dancers since 2014 but it was in 2016 when I decided to make it my number one focus. The qualifications that I have gained over the years were all aimed to help me develop as a professional to ensure that I could give my dancing clients the best and most up to date scientifically proven information.

From beginners to World Champions

To date, I am one of the very few coaches and therapists in Ireland and all over the world who works specifically with Irish dancers. I have spent the last few years travelling Ireland, the UK, the US, Canada, Australia and other parts of Europe conducting workshops and seminars, visiting schools and providing one-to-one training to help dancers prepare for major competitions. I have trained dancers of all ages and all abilities, ranging from five years of age to adults, and from beginners to National and World Champions.
