Students will learn basic old-style Irish dance steps and learn to identify forms of Irish traditional dance music (i.e. reels, jigs, hornpipes, etc) by ear. Students will become familiar with historical aspects of Irish traditional music and dance, especially the lineage of dances and steps they learn.
This class builds fluency with fundamental concepts in Irish dancing such as learning to count beats in a measure and measures in a part, and executing batters, tip downs, hop backs, overs, the rise and grind, and the side step.
This class features live music.
