One of the tallest (and most physically ripped) professional Irish dancers in the world, Joe is the troupe's resident American, hailing from New England. Those of you who enjoyed his Mystery Show livestreams these last couple of months got to chat with him and have him brighten your day as we all went through lockdown.
Joe is also, notably, a unique record holder: in June of last year, he became the first #IrishDance professional to livestream his performance onstage *as he was dancing.* Despite having to wear heavy armor in the middle of a brutal heat wave, and with absolutely no rehearsal checks to see if the equipment would even hold up onstage, Joe bravely put on the heavy broadcast backpack atop the armor, stepped out onstage as one of the Warriors, and made history.
Please join us in wishing Joe a happy birthday today!
