Old Style Irish Step Dance
w/ Shannon Dunne & Catherine Marafino, professional Irish Step dancers
Old style step dance is great for beginning dancers or percussive dancers from other genres who would like to try Irish Step Dancing! Taught and passed down by traveling "dance masters," this style predates modern, competition-style step dance popularized by "Riverdance". Instead, this dance form is characterized by small, close to the floor steps and a relaxed upper body. This 4-week class will focus on variations on the basic reel side step from Paddy Ban O'Brien and Patrick O'Dea. As an added bonus, this class will get to show off their new step skills during the Lunasa concert at Creative Alliance on Sunday, February 26th!
