  1. my name is Margaret Atkinson and I am the Director of Celtic Reflections Irish Dance Troupe and the Adelaide Academy of Irish Dancing. I have had an enquiry from a friend wanting to know details of booking and Indonesian Dance Group. I have no other details, but wondered if you could let me have a connect number or email address. I also have the details of Adelindo Angklung to pass onto him. I saw this group perform at the Governor’s Multicultural Awards and I loved them.
    Thank you for your help.
