REGULAR IRISH DANCE WORKSHOPS – SEAN NÓS STYLE
Concept and teacher: Magdalena Mak-Jeszka

New Dates TBA.

Level: All levels.
Limited number of participants.
Early registration recommended.

Workshop Tuition Fee:
1 Day: 30,00 EUR (2 hours)
4 Days: 115,00 EUR  (8 hours)
Payments on the day of the workshop: 5,00 EUR  extra charge.

Topic: Let yourself be invited on a trip to less known and more organic corners of the Irish dance realm. In a land, where it's not so important to learn complicated choreography to impress the audience but to lead the dialogue with music, improvise freely and just enjoy yourself. „Sean nós“ ("old style") Irish dance style is becoming more and more popular. Leg movements in „Sean nós“ style are small and less spacious, close to the floor, and the body is relaxed from the waist upwards. As it is an improvised form, in fact each dancer presents his own unique style. During the classes you will be provided with a selection of simple steps and sequences, on the basis of which you will be encouraged to build your own rhythmic stories. We will be also opening ourselves to improvisation.

What to wear: comfortable clothes and casual shoes with a hard sole (preferably leather sole) or tap dance shoes.

„How to register and conditions“ can be found on the registration form. Missed classes during the workshop cannot be recovered. No refunds will be made if the participant does not show up for the classes.
