Description

Sundays, 5:30-6:45pm, September 8 - October 13

Old-style Irish percussive & social dancing for adults

You are invited to join the McTeggart Irish Dancers for a full session or any number of classes in our Fall 2019 Sean Nós & Set Dancing classes.

Taught by Allison Duvall, TCRG, this class teaches old-style Irish percussive and social dancing to adult learners in an encouraging and relaxed environment. Classes are on Sunday nights, September 8 - October 13, 5:30-6:45pm. If it's your first-ever class, it's free! Returning students may sign up for the full session for $50, or attend single classes for $10 per class.

In this session, each class will be structured in this pattern:

  • Warm up with basic skills
  • Learn a new dance step or skill
  • Practice & free dance - where you practice your new and reviewed skills independently or with support from an instructor
  • Call & response
  • Set dancing - battering steps and/or working through elements of specific set dances

Beginners are welcome, and improvers encouraged! If you've taken sean nós with us, this class will encourage you to continue your own practice, enhancing your ability to dance independently and musically. If you're a beginner, this is a great way to start!

We'd love to share our sean nós program with you, a new addition to our studio offerings after more than 10 years of success in our adult Irish step and ceili dance program and 22 years in our children's dance program.

See you on the dance floor!
Preparing for Your First Class

  • What to wear: For your first class, you should wear comfortable, non-binding clothes for movement, and clean and hard-soled shoes for dancing. Tap shoes are suitable, as are Clogging Shoes and other similar styles. Before you make a special purchase, try a pair of Oxford-style dress shoes or shoes like cowboy boots.
  • Note: We do not offer discounts or refunds if you have a planned or unexpected absences.
