Myself and Mary Beth Taylor are hosting a special sean-nós dance event at Club Chonradh na Gaeilge on Thursday 11 December 2014.

Sean-nós dance extravaganzaThe evening will kick off at 7.45 with a free sean-nós dance workshop at open level followed by live music and dance. The floor is open to all dancers from beginners to improvers as well as other professional dancers.

Events of this kind are very rare in Dublin and we hope to have a full house of musicians, dancers and onlookers with a warm Christmassy vibe. It will be a perfect opportunity to learn a few new steps, share what you already know, meet other dancers based in Dublin or just to sit back and soak up the atmosphere.

Feel free to join the event on Facebook and spread the word https://www.facebook.com/events/372104376303249/. RSVP on Facebook or e-mail sibeal.davitt@gmail.com.

Hope to see you there!

Dea-scéal! Bhí an bua ag ‘Imeall’ i rannóg ‘Sraith Teilifíse na Bliana’ ag Gradaim Chumarsáide an Oireachtais Dé hAoine seo caite. Déanaim roinnt tuairisceoireachta ar chúrsaí damhsa sa tsraith ó am go ham agus bainim an-sult as. Foireann den scoth! Seo roinnt pictiúr ón ócáid.

Good news! TG4’s ‘Imeall’ won ‘Best Television Series’ at Oireachtas na Gaeilge’s Media Awards last Friday. I do some dance reporting on the show from time to time and thoroughly enjoy working with such a brilliant team! Here are some photos from the event.

A short interview with Nicky Byrne about my new show ‘Trip-Nós’ as part of the St. Patrick’s Festival Highlights – check it out around 21.17!

We were absolutely thrilled with the performance on the night. Have a look at some of the photos:

Check out my first public appearance in a tutu for years.. TG4 will air the 150th episode of Imeall on Valentines Day so go ahead – be seduced by the arts! Bígí meallta ag na healaíona

imeall_logoTune into TG4 at 10.30pm tonight for Imeall where I’ll be reporting on Art Clash – an Art class with a twist based in Dublin city.

Seo é mo chéad phacáiste le haghaidh Imeall agus bhain mé an-sult as an taifead ag The Twisted Pepper cúpla seachtainí ó shin. Tá súil agam go mbaineann sibhse an spraoi céanna as!

I got together yesterday with an old school friend, Kyrstin Healy, who’s now working as a freelance photographer. It was a really lovely experience, catching up and collaborating with someone so creative and open to new ideas.

Scenes were shot mainly in the Iveagh Gardens and also at the back of the National Concert Hall. We wanted to mix industrial backgrounds with soft but at times unsettling movements.
