It is Ruaidhrí's desire to give back to the community and share his experiences with the next generation of performers. He has been a part of outreach programs across the UK, the USA, and Canada. 


His work with the Flax Trust Arts (Northern Ireland) saw the realisation of productions with adults and children who had never danced before. Ruaidhrí believes that dance can help people from all walks of life and thoroughly enjoys seeing people engage with dance, become more creative, and grow in confidence.


Ruaidhrí is passionate about passing on his experiences as a professional to the next generation of dancers. Coming from a rural town in Northern Ireland, he had little access to information about the world of dance, and it is his goal to open the door for everyone. 

He coaches and leads masterclasses online and in-person across Northern Ireland, the ROI, and in the Gdansk area (Poland). Previous students have successfully gained places in prestigious vocational ballet schools in Canada and the UK.
