Unfortunately, Ireland has one of the highest rates of mental health illness in Europe.

Dancing used to help me to cope with sad,worries, stress or homesickness feelings.

I started to dance salsa in Ireland 8 years ago, where I met my best friends from Ireland, and all over the world. I also had the privilege to meet my husband.

A good friend of mine and an excellent Irish dancer recently said " Dancing is the cure to so many things..Sad? Go dancing. Depressed? Go dancing...I have never seen anyone frown or sad while dancing" Hellen B.

Absolutely true. Though I may not be a good dancer but I am addicted to dancing and I it gives me a kind of ‘ feel good factor’.
