Danielle Enblom, a Minneapolis-based Irish fiddle player and step dancer, will visit Kieran Jordan Dance Studio to give an illustrated talk and workshop on old-style Irish dance! Join us on Wednesday, July 5th from 6:30 - 9:00 pm at 1310 Hyde Park Ave., Boston. All levels welcome. The price is $35 (cash or check) or use 2 classes on your KJD class card. RSVP if you are coming!
The talk, entitled "The Reformation of Step Dancing in Ireland: Identity, Tradition, and the Gaelic Revival" is based on Danielle's thesis from her MA in Ethnochoreology from IT Tralee in County Kerry, Ireland. Danielle's research on historical and cultural signifiers of dance traditions in Ireland allowed her to collect history and steps from archives, libraries, and dancers around the country.
The workshop, called "Old Style Steps from Cork and Kerry," will give everyone a chance to learn some new steps, along with the historical background and particular style from this region of Ireland.
