Sharing the Tradition: Learn the unique North Kerry Munnix style of Irish Dancing from a Dance Master
Tralee, Co. Kerry
27 September - 18 October 2021
Learn the unique North Kerry Munnix style of Irish dancing from Siamsa Tíre's dance master Jonathan Kelliher

Centuries ago in Ireland, dancing teachers would tour the land, teaching people the steps involved in jigs, reels, and hornpipes. They would pass on these traditions by dancing beside their students, step by rhythmic step.

This series of workshops offered by Siamsa Tíre, The National Folk Theatre of Ireland, does just this.

The workshops are taught by Jonathan Kelliher, a traditional Irish Dance Master. He dances in a unique way known as the Munnix style, which originated in North Kerry in the early 1700s.

Dancing experience is an advantage but not required. Jonathan teaches the basic steps and shows how they are woven together into a dance. He also tells the story of Munnix dancing and how it has survived to the present day.
