Kevinah Dargan started dancing at the age of 4 under the instruction of Mary Kay Heneghan at the Rince Na Tiarna school of Irish dance. From there, she went on to win 9 Mid Atlantic Championships, 8 North American Championships, the All Ireland championships, and the World Championships. Kevinah is the youngest dancer in North America to win a World Championship. Along with her solo titles, she was also part of numerous teams that won the All Ireland Championships, National Championships and regional Oireachtas titles. During that time, when not competing, she performed throughout WNY including dancing with artists like Cherish the Ladies, Eileen Ivers, Black 47, The High Kings, The BPO featuring Marvin Hamlish and the Chieftains. Kevinah was a regular St Patrick’s Day guest with Janet & Nick on Kiss 98.5 as well as on local television shows and performing for community organizations.
After Kevinah was done competing, she went on to join Lord of the Dance-Dangerous Games in 2014 where she performed the lead, “Saoirse,” alongside Michael Flatley at the Dominion Theatre in London’s famed West End. This was followed by a residency on Broadway at the Lyric Theatre where Michael Flatley made his Broadway debut.. After Lord of the Dance, Kevinah went on to join Riverdance on their Chinese tour, followed by performing for the summer in the Gaiety Theater in Dublin, Ireland and in Killarney, Ireland. And if that is not enough, Kevinah has performed on “Great Britain’s Got Talent” and on the “Graham Norton Show” where she and the cast dazzled guests Julianne Moore and Cuba Gooding Jr.
Kevinah is thrilled to be teaching at Rince Na Tiarna, the school she owes all of her success to!
