Centuries ago in Ireland, dancing teachers toured the land, teaching people the steps involved in jigs, reels, and hornpipes. They passed on these traditions by dancing alongside their students, step by rhythmic step.
These days, thanks to the internet, you can learn from dance masters in your own home.
Sharing the Tradition is a series of online dancing workshops for advanced dancers. These workshops are taught by Jonathan Kelliher, the Dance Master of Siamsa Tíre, The National Folk Theatre of Ireland.
Jonathan dances in the unique Munnix style, which originated in North Kerry in the early 1700s. In these workshops, Jonathan will share the history of this style of dancing, all while showing you how to master its steps.
