Get your dancing shoes on, and be ready to jive as new Sean Nós, Old Traditional Céilí and Step Dances are starting up at the GAA Clubhouse, in Brackernagh.
This year the Club be introducing a refreshing but traditional element to the classes. Being part and parcel of the word ‘Sean Nós’ meaning old style, the classes will be teaching some of the original Traditional Céilí and Step Dances such as the Priest in his Boots, Maggie Pickie, The Three Tunes, High Caulded Cap, St. Patrick's Day, and many more great dances.
A lot of these dances began to fade away as Step Dancing ‘stepped’ up so to say and became the dominant force during Céilís. Nowadays, the popularity of these generation-old dances handed down throughout the years is beginning to emerge again in a non-competitive form.
Within Irish culture it is essential that the dances are kept alive and immortalised forever ready to break out at weddings, parties, and musical events - creating great fun for all.
Dancing in all forms is so good for your mental health and wellbeing and as Céilí dancing is low impact it is suitable for people of all ages; all you need is a comfortable pair of shoes!
Registration for these classes is encouraged and will be great for fitness and fun. Registration for children will be held on Tuesday, October 5th, from 5 pm for children, and 7pm for adults of any gender, above the age 18, and over, who are also fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Covid guidelines will also be fully adhered to.
The Club marks a milestone 10 years of activity this year officially but with the 18 month Pandemic gap – they are working out how best of officially mark it !
