Curious about sean-nós dance?
Sean-nós, meaning ‘old style’ in Gaeilc, is a freestyle, improvisational form of solo Irish dance, often compared to street tap.
Join Sibéal Davitt for a series of 8 classes at open level where participants will learn a strong repertoire of sean-nós dance steps and the ability to improvise to traditional Irish music. This is a high energy dance class, aimed at adults looking to progress their solo dance skills.
Sibéal is one of Ireland’s leading professional sean-nós dancers. Having won TG4’s talent show ‘Glas Vegas’ in 2009, she went on to perform in Las Vegas and other noted venues and festivals including Electric Picnic, Celtic Connections, the Abbey Theatre and the National Concert Hall. Sibéal learned classical ballet, jazz and contemporary dance from the age of 5 and is currently developing her choreographic practice in the range of Irish traditional and contemporary dance.
Sibéal completed an MA in Contemporary Dance Performance at UL in 2014 where she worked with acclaimed choreographers. She was awarded Dance Ireland’s Mentored Residency Award under Colin Dunne in 2014 and performed a work-in-progess alongside Kristyn Fontanella, which is currently being further developed.
