"I was already in the matchmaking business and from talking to people it was clear that people find it hard to meet others who are outside of their social circle.
"The one thing I have noticed is that there are a lot of people who attend the nights and stay friends, so at the very least they are increasing their social circle." Ms Loughman has been running Table For Six nights since last November but recently brought the service nationwide with meet-ups in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick and a number of other towns.
Now 48, last year de Gallaí danced his putative swansong in Linger, a duet that took on the rare challenge of exploring gay male identity within Irish dance.
“But there was something else coming out of that work that I needed to resolve,” he says, “and it was a sense of constructed identity, or wearing an identity to suit other people, rather than who you actually are.” The resulting show, Aon, is a fusion of Irish dance with contemporary dance, combining many of the breath-taking elements of Irish dance with a deeper and at times more challenging approach.
Because of this, we are committed to assisting singles in Northern Ireland in their search to find love and romantic fulfillment.

Aon also draws on many elements more familiar from the Tanztheater tradition: the use of props, song, characterisation and dancers’ voices.
Sequences sensitively split between dancing in hard shoes, soft shoes and in bare feet, the variance in sound, rather than an incessant hard shoe tapping, drives home more deeply how much of Irish dance is actually percussion of the body.
The bare foot sequences are the most beautiful of all, accentuating the duality between the vulnerability on the one hand, and incredible strength and speed on the other, of the dancers.but he needed to devise a whole set of new movements to do so.
