Many Lancastrians will agree – it just isn’t St. Patrick’s Day until you see performers from the Paloma School of Irish Dance.

The competitive dancers take their show on the road annually during its St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl, giving short performances for free during visits to at least 15 venues between Friday and Saturday.

Their travels took them to Spring House Brewing Company’s Hazel Street location twice on Friday afternoon to perform for patrons.

Today, the group continues its performances 1 p.m. at the Taproom, 25 W. King St.; 1:30 p.m. at Spring House Brewing Company, 209 Hazel St.; 2 p.m. at Meduseld Meadery, 252 Harrisburg Ave.; and 2:30 p.m. at Musser Park, 135 N. Lime St.

Esther Pujol, a competitive Irish dancer herself, found the Paloma School of Irish Dance in May 2015. The school has over 70 students.
