In this online experience, I’ll welcome you virtually into my home here in Salthill, Ireland.
We will spend first few minutes informally chatting, gently warming up our legs. I'll talk you through the history of traditional dance in Ireland. I'll do a quick demonstration of all the different styles of Irish dance and then we can discuss the differences between them.
Then it's time for the dancing! We'll learn a Sean-nós dance step and an Irish step dance step. We'll try the steps to the music. According to how much time is left, we can learn more complicated steps. After that, I'll explain how to create your own step out of the movements we just learned.
This is an online experience, so you will need access to the internet and a computer, tablet or smartphone. Your camera and microphone has to be functional for this experience since we will be conversing during the experience and I also need to be able to see you so I can help you with the steps. Also please make sure there's enough light in the space where you'll be dancing, you can also help the lighting situation by wearing bright or light colored clothes. Dress up for the occasion! :)
