Online Dance Classes (Adult)
Sharing the Tradition
Siamsa Tíre, The National Folk Theatre of Ireland is offering a new online class initiative for musicians and dancers, where experienced tutors will share their insights and background of tunes and step dances, as well as take the time to teach and perform them.
First up is North Kerry “Munnix” style of traditional dance.
Join traditional Irish Dance Master Jonathan Kelliher to learn the very unique and beautiful North Kerry “Munnix” style of Irish dance. This style dates to the early 1700s and was handed down through the generations by traditional dance masters.
Dance experience is an advantage but not required as Jonathan will give you the history of this special dance style from North Kerry and teach you the basic steps and how to put them together.
Jonathan is the Artistic Director of Siamsa Tíre’s National Folk Theatre programme. He has been studying the North Kerry style of dance since the age of 6 and followed in the footsteps of a long line of North Kerry Dance Masters to become one of the most respected voices in discussing the style and its history and is known as one of the best exponents of the style in Ireland.
The classes are open to anyone over the age of 16, and will run for 4 weeks on the following dates from 7pm to 8pm – click on series link to book relevant series of classes:
