Sibéal teaching(Leagan Gaeilge thíos)

Join me for a series of sean-nós dance workshops in the heart of Dublin city next week on Tuesday 17 and Thursday 19 December 2013.

I’ll be teaching sean-nós dance steps with a modern twist, offering students the opportunity to kick loose and move freely to the music. All are welcome to Club Chonradh na Gaeilge, 6 Harcourt Street, Dublin 2 for a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Tuesday will kick off at 6pm with an hour-long intensive workshop for improvers. Participants must have prior experience and should be willing to dance solo. This workshop will cover more advanced reel steps as well as more complex rhythmic ornamentation. €10 admission. From 7.15pm – 8.30pm I’ll be going back to basics for a beginner’s workshop. Starting with a short warm up to get the heart rate up, this workshop will a provide a basic lesson in traditional rhythm as well as a good physical workout – no prior experience necessary. €10 admission.

Thursday’s workshops will take place at the same times. The material will follow on from the steps learned on Tuesday but complete beginners are welcome to the 7.15 session. There will be special rates for all 4 workshops.

Although all workshops will be taught bilingually, participants are not required to speak Irish. Spaces are limited so make sure to reserve a place e-mailing sibeal.davitt@gmail.com. Please arrive 15 mins early to prepare for the class.

Come and step up to the challenge before digging all the festive goodies and don’t forget the spread the word!

An bhfuil suim agat sa damhsa ar an sean-nós?

Beidh mé ag reáchtáil ceardlanna damhsa ar an sean-nós ag leibhéil eagsúla cumais an tseachtain seo chugainn ar an Máirt 17 Nollaig agus Déardaoin 19 Nollaig 2013.

Cuirfear fáilte roimh chách teacht agus páirt a ghlacadh san oíche mhór a bheidh ar siúl sa i gClub Chonradh na Gaeilge, 6 Sráid Fhearchair, Baile Átha Cliath 2 ar 16 Lúnasa.

Ar an Máirt, cuirfear tús leis an oíche le ceardlann d’fheabhsóirí ag 6 – 7i.n. Ardrang aclaíochta a bheidh i gceist leis seo ina ndíreofar ar chéimeanna níos casta agus ar ornáidíocht rithime. Beifear ag súil go mbeadh na bunchéimeanna ar eolas ag na rannpháirtithe agus go mbeadh muinín acu iontu. Gearrfar €10 an duine don uair an chloig. Ag 7.15 – 8.30 beidh fáilte roimh ghlanthosaitheoirí teacht agus bunchéimeanna an tsean-nóis a fhoghlaim. Ní gá go mbeadh cur amach ag rannpháirtithe ar an sean-nós roimhe seo ach ba chóir go mbeadh siad toilteanach allas a chur! €10 an duine.

Ar an Déardaoin leanfar ar aghaidh leis na céimeanna a múineadh ar an Máirt ach cuirfear fáilte roimh ghlanthosaitheoirí ag 7.15.

Ceardlanna dátheangacha a bheidh i gceist agus ní bheifear ag súil le cumas ard Gaeilge. Beidh teorainn le líon na spásanna sna ceardlanna mar sin ní mór r-phost a chur chuig sibeal.davitt@gmail.com le spás a chur in áirithe.

Due to the amazing turnout I had for both sean-nós dance workshops last week at Club Chonradh na Gaeilge, 6 Harcourt Street, Dublin 2, I’ve decided to run another night this Friday, 23 August 2013, at the same time and venue.

I noticed some serious talent in both classes and would like to explore the steps in greater detail. If you feel you’d like to take a step up from the beginner’s class, I would suggest you give the improvers class a try, even if last week was your first lesson. If you feel you would benefit from a recap of the basic steps, I’d stick to the beginner’s class.

Here are the details:

The evening will kick off at 6pm with an hour-long intensive workshop for improvers. Participants must have prior experience and should be willing to dance solo. This workshop will cover more advanced reel steps as well as more complex rhythmic ornamentation. €10 admission.

From 7.15pm – 8.45pm I’ll be going back to basics for a beginner’s workshop. Starting with a short warm up to get the heart rate up, this workshop will a provide a basic lesson in traditional rhythm as well as a good physical workout – no prior experience necessary. €12 admission.

Although both workshops will be taught bilingually, participants are not required to speak Irish. Spaces are very limited so please make sure to reserve a place by e-mailing sibeal.davitt@gmail.com. Please arrive 15 mins early to prepare for the class.

 

De bharr éilimh mhóir, tá an cinneadh glactha agam tuilleadh ceardlanna damhsa ar an sean-nós a reáchtáil Dé hAoine beag seo, 23 Lúnasa 2013, ag Club Chonradh na Gaeilge, 6 Sráid Fhearchair, Baile Átha Cliath 2.

Bhí mé an-tógtha le caighdeán ard na ndamhsóirí a bhí i láthair an tseachtain seo caite agus is mian liom na scileanna sin a fhorbairt níos mó.

Seo iad na sonraí:

Cuirfear tús leis an oíche le ceardlann d’fheabhóirí ag 6 – 7i.n. Ardrang aclaíochta a bheidh i gceist leis seo ina ndíreofar ar chéimeanna níos casta agus ar ornáidíocht rithime. Beifear ag súil go mbeadh na bunchéimeanna ar eolas ag na rannpháirtithe agus go mbeadh muinín acu iontu. Gearrfar €10 an duine don uair an chloig.

Ag 7.15 – 8.45 beidh fáilte roimh ghlanthosaitheoirí teacht agus bunchéimeanna an tsean-nóis a fhoghlaim. Ní gá go mbeadh cur amach ag rannpháirtithe ar an sean-nós roimhe seo ach ba chóir go mbeadh siad toilteanach allas a chur! €12 an praghas a bheidh ar uair go leith.

Ceardlanna dátheangacha a bheidh i gceist agus ní bheifear ag súil le cumas ard Gaeilge. Beidh teorainn le líon na spásanna sna ceardlanna mar sin ní mór r-phost a chur chuig sibeal.davitt@gmail.com le spás a chur in áirithe.

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.

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
