AMDIE (Anahuac Mexican Dance Ireland)
AMDIE (short for Anahuac Mexican Dance Ireland) is an organisation that was formed with the purpose of enjoying and sharing traditional Hispanic dance and music in Ireland. Formed in 2014, and based in Cork, Ireland, its goal is to achieve greater integration and inclusion into Irish society through a social dance community.
AMDIE regularly performs and showcases traditional Mexican dance at events, festivals and other cultural activities. The group has previously been featured at St. Patrick's Day celebrations in Cork, at the Cork Guinness Jazz Festival, at Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) with Cali Cultural Centre, and more.
Though the organisation represents the Latin American community in Ireland, it is open to anyone with an interest in Latin folk dances. It is also open to members from outside the greater Cork area. You don't need any formal dance experience to get involved; the group would like to hear from anyone who would like to join. They are also interested in collaborating with other arts and community groups and to hearing from members of the media.
