Do you know what makes our city amazing? In our December 2017 issue, we answered this question when we published a feature about the incredible community gifts that make living in Louisville fun — whether it’s food, art, or a nonprofit organization. We wanted to feature the local innovators and creative people who are bringing new energy into our city. Celebrating our city is what we love to do, but we need your help. Do you know of an individual or organization whose gift to our community is changing lives in a positive way?

Nominate her to be featured in the December issue of Today’s Woman. The deadline for nominations is October 5.

    Heather McClannahan Ackerman started the McClanahan School of Irish Dance in 1996. Since it’s humble inception, Heather has taught young and old the grace, sport and passion of Irish dance.
    As the studio has grown, so has the presence of Irish dance in the community and in the world. Heather and her team of two additional teachers have trained dancers to compete in competitions the world over… from Glasgow Scotland to Vancouver, BC and all places in between.
    Under Heather’s guidance, the 2018 and 2019 Mid American Oireachtas is being held in Louisville in November of each year. An Oireachtas (Irish word for a gathering or convention of people) is an Irish Dance competition that qualifies dancers for both World and National Championships. The November 22, 2018 event should bring almost 2,500 dancers and their families to Louisville as the event will be held at the newly remodeled KICC. Heather was the driving force behind getting this event to Louisville and showcasing all that the city has to offer.
