Sean-nós Dancing
with Kieran Jordan

Sunday, December 6
11 am – 12:15 pm Beginners
12:15 pm – 1:30 pm Intermediate & Advanced

Sean-nós means “old-style” in the Irish language. As a solo, improvised form of dance, the sean-nós style is as varied and unique as every dancer who dances it. A sean-nós dance performance is often informal, playful, and expressive, allowing the dancer to engage in a here-and-now dialogue with the music. Distinct from more modern forms of Irish step dancing, sean-nós dancing feature short rhythmic patterns, subtle movements with footwork kept close-to-the-floor, and a loose, relaxed upper body.

Beginner students will learn the basic movements and rhythms that progress into popular steps found in Connemara sean-nós dancing. Intermediate/advanced students will learn more complex battering steps and will work on improvisational exercises to gain confidence in performing and creating their own dances.  

Location: Players Theater, 115 MacDougal Street, New York, NY, 10012.
