Sean-nós Spring term 2018 flyer

ATTENTION YOUNG DANCERS AND MOVERS!

I’m very excited to announce that Olwyn Lyons and I will be choreographing a new piece for Coiscéim’s Creative Steps in early 2018. All info in the following link http://coisceim.com/counterculture2018/.

The Steppers did an amazing job last year creating and performing Walk, Run, Dance and we can’t wait to get into the studio with some new and familiar faces. Contact philippa@coisceim.com to book a place in the taster class in early January.

In celebration of ‪#‎InternationalDanceDay‬ I’m excited to release this short film myself and Olwyn Lyons choreographed almost a year ago. So much has happened over the past year and it’s great to have a window into our creative process at the time.

Music by Barnt, filming by Gavin FitzGerald, Colin Daggeringson and art direction by Ciana March of Concrete Collar, makeup by KeilidhMua. The dream team!

Big thanks to the Séan O’Casey Community Centre for providing the amazing location. Feel free to share!

Myself and Aine Ní Laoghaire will be teaching bilingual summer camps during the week at The elbowroom, Stoneybatter. If your kids are interSibéal ag léimptested in drama, dance and storytelling, do get in contact..it’ll be a lovely experience with a little showing at the end.

Beidh mé féin agus Aine Ní Laoghaire ag múineadh campaí dátheangacha an tseachtain seo chugainn i mBÁC. Má tá suim ag do pháistí sa drámaíocht, damhsa agus sa scéalaíocht, déan teagmháil linn. Taispeánfar an méid a d’fhoghlaim siad ag deireadh na seachtaine.

The camp runs from 27-31 July from 9am-2pm. Book here – https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/classic/home?studioid=1638.

Brrrrrrr, is it just me or is it getting darker and colder already? Why not spend an evening learning some sean-nós steps and getting a good sweat going??

I’ll be running classes on Mondays, Tuesday AND Wednesday in different venues so there should be a class to accommodate everyone. Check out the schedule over on https://sibealdavitt.com/dance-classes/

Make sure to fill out a contact form and book a place as classes are filling up quickly. Hope to see you there.
