Irish Dance Pro Limited started in 2014, when founder, Shane McAvinchey, a former Riverdance star, Irish dancing teacher (TCRG) and leader of various professional Irish Dance training programs had an idea. He was teaching his dance school in the city of Munich and was wondering why nobody was practicing at home. His students, many of whom lived in city apartments., told him that they couldn't practice at home for fear of disturbing the neighbours or scratching the floors. Then he had an idea, what if all his students had a protective, sound proofing, mobile practice mat of their own in unique colours & designs? Whats more, what if they could bring these dance mats to the studio to practice while classes are in progress without disturbing the others, and what if they could bring them to competitions to warm up on?! ... Immediately he got to work and so Irish Dance Pro was born.
