Sean-nos New York

I recently ran into renowned fiddler Tony DeMarco at the Swift Session.  He told me about dancer Siobhan Butler‘s new dance classes, Sean-nos New York. And now I am telling you…

Sean-Nós is considered by many to be the original form of solo Irish dancing. Literally translating to “Old Style”, Sean-Nós is an improvised style that is completely unique to each dancer. Dancers interpret the music through low to the floor percussive movements, adding their own stylized flairs.
