Description: Sean-nós, or old-style Irish dance, predates the era of the Gaelic Revival when dancing in Ireland became more standardized. While sean-nós often refers to the style of dance from Connemara, there are many old-style dance traditions around Ireland. All of these dance forms are musical, improvisational, and invite self-expression. In this workshop, students will dig into the structure of Irish dance tunes, and explore creating various rhythms. We will learn and work with basics steps like the Connemara step, the Clare battering step, and the Roscommon step. Dancers will learn sequences and also practice improvising to the music. Danielle incorporates broader contexts into her classes which include histories and the relationships to European and North American step dance traditions.
