Sean Nós Dance  |  Carrick on Shannon, Co. Leitrim  |  30th July – 4th August 2018


After many years of teaching children at summer schools and summer camps across Ireland and many requests from adults to run one for them, I’ve finally listened to you and organised a dance residency specifically for adults.

This week long Sean Nós Dance dance residency with myself, Edwina Guckian, will take place from 30th July to 4th August 2018 in my beautiful hometown of Carrick on Shannon in Co. Leitrim.

It will be an intensive course in Sean Nós Dance from 11-2pm daily followed by special guest speakers that I have invited for dance discussions and talks. There’s will be sessions and Ceilíthe running through out the week for you to get up and knock some sparks out of the floor!

The cost for the week is €150 and is for adults only with a limited number of places being offered. It is preferred that all participants have some experience in any form of percussive dance and is not a complete beginner.
