Ida Mitrani and Cian O’Daly

Dancing the Cha Cha Cha.

Cian’s hobbies are cycling, football,and gaming. Cian once was the ugly step sister in a school production of Cinderella in primary school, and that’s about as much performance skills and experience he has.

Over the last number of years, Cian has been concentrating on striking the right balance between work and family life. He has two small children and doesn’t have much time for activities outside of that. He decided he wanted to challenge himself and do something he’s never done before.

Ida loves art, literature, food, and wine! Great fun! And she has indeed had some dance experience before. Although she did not know her partner Cian before this event, she is extremely positive overall with the song and dance.

    Fun, challenging, fun!

    It was a little daunting at first, but June broke it down and made it easy to process. Confidence grew throughout the first few rehearsals.

    Cian feels that Ida is a great dance partner. They’ve taken a similar approach to this process and are very focused but also up for having fun along the way which is always important.

    Any surprises?

    We aren’t as bad as we thought we would be.
