And they’re going to teach us some sean-nós dance!  Ms. Jordan is a well-respected dancer, choreographer and teacher, and we are honored to have her. Mr. Cunningham will be familiar to Milwaukee Irish Fest attendees where he has taught classes and delighted audiences with his sean-nós dance performances for many years.

What the heck is sean-nós dance? Sean-nós literally translates to “old style.” It is akin to clogging, tap dancing, and is the forerunner of modern Irish dance. It’s fast and exciting, but far less rigid than the modern stuff. Here, check out this video of the Atlantic Steps show: http://vimeo.com/69823191

 

This event is made possible through the support of the Madison Celtic Cultural Center (http://www.celticmadison.org).
