Irish dancers to perform March 15
Penn State Hazleton's next performance in the Cultural Event Series will feature an event just in time for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. The Broesler School of Irish Dance will take to the stage at 8 p.m., Tues., March 15, in the Slusser/Bayzick Building at the campus. The event is free and open to the public.
Led by Kevin Broesler, the group will perform high-kicking routines that flash like sequins on their costumes and leave the staccato tap of their toes reverberating in the venue.
Like their teacher, a former world and national champion, students in the Kevin Broesler School of Irish Dance have won trophies of their own. They compete in national and regional competitions near schools that Broesler operates in Fishkill and Brewster, New York, Haddonfield and Westwood, New Jersey, Yorklyn, Delaware, and Baltimore, Maryland, as well as at the World Irish Dancing Championships.
Broesler opened his first school in 1986, and 20 years later Irish Dancing and Culture Magazine named his schools tops in the United States. Irish American Magazine in 2004 chose him as one of the top 100 Irish Americans.
Broesler’s teaching talents and moves have appeared on the big screen when taught Cher and Ryan O’Neal to dance and appeared in their 1996 movie "Faithful."

The final installment of the series is scheduled for Tues., March 29, with Tracy Silverman, electric violinist, appearing at 8 p.m. in the Slusser/Bayzick Building.
