What you'll do
In this online experience, I’ll welcome you virtually into my home here in Salthill, Ireland. We will spend first few minutes informally chatting, gently warming up our legs. I'll talk you through the history of traditional dance in Ireland. I'll do a quick demonstration of all the different styles of Irish dance and then we can discuss the differences between them. Then it's time for the dancing! We'll learn a Sean-nós dance step and an Irish step dance step. We'll try the steps to the music. According to how much time is left, we can learn more complicated steps. After that, I'll explain how to create your own step out of the movements we just learned. This is an online experience, so you will need access to the internet and a computer, tablet or smartphone. Your camera and microphone has to be functional for this experience since we will be conversing during the experience and I also need to be able to see you so I can help you with the steps. Also please make sure there's enough light in the space where you'll be dancing, you can also help the lighting situation by wearing bright or light colored clothes. Dress up for the occasion! :) Please take a look at my two other Airbnb Experiences here: https://www.airbnb.ie/experiences/125274 https://www.airbnb.ie/experiences/548641

I'm a professional dancer, musician, and educator who loves teaching. I taught workshops at the world's largest Celtic music festival (Celtic Connections), worked with the world-renowned Irish band Kíla, and toured Europe and US. I've hosted in-person Airbnb dance experiences in my home here in Ireland. They're among the most popular experiences in Galway. I believe dance is a powerful tool for human expression that can improve people's mental health and happiness. I’d like to use dance as a platform to bring together people of various social backgrounds and nationalities. Learning dance in my late teens, I still remember how it feels in the beginning! So come relax, learn, dance, and enjoy yourselves!
