The evenings are beginning to draw in, and before we know it, the Celtic festival of Samhain (Halloween) will herald the start of winter. How are you going to spend those long winter nights? What are you going to do to keep yourself happily entertained?
Siamsa Tíre has the ideal answer to these questions in the form of Sharing the Tradition, a series of classes that are taking place both in person at Siamsa Tíre and online. These are classes in traditional music and dance. They will be taught by members of Siamsa Tíre’s National Folk Theatre in Tralee, Co. Kerry, and they will be open to people of all levels of ability.
First up are the in-person adult music and dance classes which kick off at 7 pm (IST) or 2 pm (EST) on Monday, September 26th, and run for one hour every week for eight weeks. They take place in Siamsa Tíre and are aimed at people who have a basic to intermediate level of skill in music and dance.
Next are the online Munnix dance classes, which begin on Thursday, October 6th. These classes will be taught by traditional Irish Dance Master and Artistic Director of Siamsa Tíre’s National Folk Theatre Jonathan Kelliher. They are suitable for everyone from beginner’s level to more advanced as Jonathan starts by teaching the basic steps before demonstrating how they can be combined into different dances.
