Since 2008, Maria has been teaching creative dance classes and workshops to a range of ages and abilities in both Primary and Secondary schools as well as for professionals. The core of her classes is same for all, the enjoyment of moving, together and individually. Her interest lies with performance, expression and the ability to be seen.

In 2015-2016 Maria was part of  The Easter Rising Dance and School Project, a Teacher/Artist Partnership funded by Kerry County Council and Tralee Education Centre. The project involved 3rd class from Ardfert National School and culminated in a piece entitled “Children of 1916”, looking at the children at the time of The Rising and embodying the emotions connected.
