Join Siobhan Butler for a 6 hour introduction to sean nós (old style) dance course. Sean-nós is an informal traditional dance form that values spontaneous expression. This course will emphasise traditional steps, musicality, choreography techniques, and improvisation.
Siobhan Butler is a performer and teacher of sean-nós dance based in County Clare, Ireland. In her over 20 years as a dancer, she has performed and taught dance around the world with some of the leading traditional artists such as Nic Gareiss, Lúnasa, Cherish the Ladies, Nuala Kennedy, and many more.
Rather than just teaching a single technique, Siobhan pulls from her vast knowledge of percussive dance traditions to give her students a variety of tools to help them interpret the music and build their dancing in their own creative way.
This course is organised with the support of the Embassy of Ireland in Finland.
