Kieran Jordan Irish dancer in performance

”Kieran's philosophy is clear and clean in her dancing: rock-solid, light but sturdy, with a puckish sense of humor and a big smile on its face.”

— Dan Accardi, Musician

”When Kieran dances, you can’t help but be drawn in. I’ve never seen anyone so connected to the music. I think she is very true to both the roots and progression of Irish dance.“

— Ananda Henriksen, Dancer

”My wife and I both agree. You stole the show at the Celtic Sojourn. All the way home, I kept saying, what a dancer…what an athlete…what fluid elegance!“

— David Smith, Massachusetts
