As the oldest daughter of Agnes (Leahy) and Mark Enright, Jacqueline has been immersed in music from a very young age. Fun fact…she was the first ‘child’ to travel with Leahy in their earlier days of touring. Fast forward to today….Jacqueline is all grown up and plays the piano, fiddle, and stepdances.
Music has always played a central role in Jacqueline’s life. After learning to dance from the great Gilles Roy, she went on to dance competitively across Ontario capturing several awards and championships. Soon she was performing in the Ottawa Valley with her own siblings and cousins, and making guest appearances with other talented musicians like Louis Schryer, Gail Gavin, and the Ryans. She has taught stepdancing throughout her life and for the last five years, has been one of the principle dance instructors at the Music Camp.
Though she is in her forth year of studying law at Carleton University, Jacqueline still finds time to teach both step-dancing and fiddle at Pauline Brown’s School of Step-dancing. And, when school and time allow, she still makes appearances with the Leahy’s for special performances and concerts.
We look forward to everyone having a chance to work with Jacqueline at Music Camp this year!
