Wecome to Dancing with Declan

Hosted by Dance Teacher Declan Flanagan

This is DancingwithDeclan.ie, the online home of Wexford dance teacher Declan Flanagan.

Rock n' Roll, West Coast Swing, Irish Country Jiving, Ballroom or Line Dancing, Declan loves and can teach them all. He loves anything that doesn't involve sitting on a chair while there is music playing!

Declan lives in the seaside village of Blackwater, Wexford, Ireland - an area he commonly refers to as ‘the sunny south east’. As well as teaching dance he is the early morning DJ on Elite Radio.

A word from Declan...

“I cover every dance you’ll ever need and I keep it very simple and easy. You’ll be up dancing in less than 5 minutes! 2 left feet? No problem! Tried it before? No problem! It’s never too late. Let’s do this...”

Always dancing, Declan is keen to develop new venues across the region and welcomes suggestions for venues in in Wexford, Wicklow, Waterford, Carlow, Kilkenny and across the South East.

As well as hosting dance classes you will often find Declan in dance halls across the island of Ireland following his favourite artists and dancing the night away. He regularly attends Country Music Festivals and also take part in various dance workshops with other teachers. Well known in the Country Music scene Declan is a friend in the know when it comes to gigs and weekends spent on country roads...

Here, there and everywhere

We love to dance and you can join us any Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday night when we have classes in various venues across the south east.
See our class listings below for full details on our classes. We can also be found at festivals and events across the country.

On The Radio


Like many other people involved in the dancing industry Declan is no stranger to late nights... and is very well known for his early morning too. His radio show on Elite Radio is live on weekday mornings from 7.30am until 9.00am with a mix of music, chat, competitions and brainteasers that keeps his many many listeners captivated.

When he goes live at 7.30pm Declan has a TV Show or Movie Soundtrack Brainteasers to help you waken up and music from an unnamed artist or band played backwards - The Backspin. He gives clues about both throughout the next 45 minutes or so and adds the listeners who have taken part - stating whether they are right or wrong - to his ‘tick list’.

When Elite Radio goes on the road with its Roadcaster, Declan attends the outside broadcasts when he can and has been known to have a dance or two across the country music festivals....
