Description: Sean-nós dancing is considered by many to be the original form of solo Irish dance. Literally translating to "old style" sean-nós is an improvised dance style that is completely unique to each dancer. Dancing interprets the music through low-to-the-floor percussive movements. This class is a wonderful opportunity for those interested in starting, or returning to, the basics of sean-nós dance. Focusing on its rudimentary movements and rhythms in sean-nós, this class will give students the tools to begin building their repertoire and developing their sense of musicality. Students will leave the week having learned an expansive and fun series of steps. Please wear hard-soled shoes (leather or very hard rubber) and bring water and a recording device or notebook.
