Brian will be offering a six week summer term in sean-nós dance for both beginner and intermediate levels at the Stomptown Collective. Both series will focus on understanding the “timing step” and its various forms as well how to augment this timing to accommodate various dance tune types. Along with teaching tricks and steps—foot articulation, weight distribution, upper body posture, and tempo will also be focused on. Particular importance will be placed on improvisation, cultivating a personal style, and understanding the historical context of this dance form. No tap shoes or Irish step dancing hard shoes! Please bring a recording device.
