MArtha joyfully dances on the Irish Dance show – we congratulate having interesting initiatives in Dochas Centre prison

On Friday, July 20, there was a promised Irish dancing show at the Dochas Centre prison.
After 4 hours of learning

The show lasted for about 1 hour.
Including instructors, total of 3 pairs were dancing.
In one of the pairs, of course, was… Martha.
Together with other inmate.
Martha was glad of the performance.
She thinks, the dancing was good and that they had fun.

During summer vacation there is a little of activities in Dochas Centre prison in Dublin.
Martha had already finished those available.
The more, we congratulate the people responsible for activities in Dochas Centre in Dublin. We congratulate interesting ideas.
Life of women serving their sentences in prison is difficult, just because of imprisonment alone.
Every moment of relaxation, every moment of movement, every moment of joy, every moment of interesting activities is a very good initiative.
After all, the classes are for women, who found themselves behind “walls” only “temporarily”.
The imprisonment is a punishment for mistakes, but it can not create enormous gulf between the “outer” and the “inner” world.

We congratulate of every interesting cultural activities in Dochas Centre prison in Dublin.

We wrote, that Martha learns Irish dancing.
We informed, that the classes was supposed to last 2 days.

It appears, that the classes will last for 3 days.
Later, they were supposed to be held on Wendesday, July 18.
For July 20, a show is scheduled – a show of Irish dance in Dochas Centre prison.
In the beginning, there were about 12 women inmates of prison in Dublin on the classes.
On the second class – a half of that.
On the third one, there was only the instructor and… Martha.

After few classes, on July 20, a show of Irish Dance is scheduled in Dochas Centre prison in Dublin.
Who will perform?
How many people will participate in the show?

Martha is supporting such initiatives, even if she has to dance only with the intructor.
The family and friends joke, that there is full of Martha everywhere.

It’s good to find joy in every activity,
in every learning,
in every effort…
In a place like prison, one “celebrates” every activity, every learning, every effort…
…to not to go crazy…

Martha on Irish Dance classes

On Wednesday, July 11, classes of Irish Dance was held in Dochas Centre prison in Dublin.
The classes took place on the yard.
They lasted for 1 hour.
The classes were taught by two people from outside: a woman and a man.
They were in form of learning of Irish dancing.
Participation was voluntary.
About 12 women of all the women  inmates of Dochas Centre decided to participate.
Of course Martha was among them.
Martha, who is first in every class, first in learning of anything.

Martha was very satisfied with the classes.
That’s all we know.
Another class is to be held on Thursday, July 12.

Frankly, we must admit, that different, “general” actions of prison authorities, from a “human” point of view, are going in the right direction.
“General” – meaning, concerning all women inmates.

Our reservations arise, because sometimes we have an impression, that some prison officers would want, that Martha wouldn’t use certain “general” easements and privileges.
And they act in that manner.
The effect is that others can, but Martha – CAN’T.
“Double standards”, if one can talk about “standards” here.

We are very glad, that Martha is active and committed.
She tries to draw joy from everything she can.
It’s not a full joy, but better that than nothing…
