Step Dance Workshop & Dance Session

  • Sunflower Public House 65 Union Street Belfast, Northern Ireland, BT1 2FP United Kingdom (map)

Workshop and Free Dance Session - Open Floor
Step dancing experience required

Taught by Step with Annette
Saturday 3 March 2018
1pm Workshop
Cost £15 per person
3pm Free Dance Session ~ Open Floor

The first in a planned series of dance events designed to extend and consolidate your dance repertoire. The workshop aims to build on a common selection of dances that we can dance together later in the day. Annette will run through a number of dances of differing levels, some will be easy to pick up, some will have been taught at workshops/classes and this session will provide an opportunity to refresh and revise them, Annette may include dances that are new to you and suggestions for chosen dances are also welcome. 

(please note Annette runs beginner workshops through the year)

Mark Prescott will provide live fiddle music for the workshop (www.markprescott.com), as he does for all "Step with Annette" events.

Annette is an established teacher of Traditional Old Style Solo Step Dancing. The steps and dances she offers have been passed down an unbroken line from the Dancing Masters of old, and are the precursor to competitive Irish Dancing and Riverdance, see website. Annette holds weekly classes at 2 levels in Lurgan Town Hall.

For further detail on the workshop or to book your place, contact Annette directly, please feel free to forward this email to interested parties, either here, or via email: stepwithannette@yahoo.co.uk
Free Dance Session - Open Floor

A dance session much like a music session, the thinking behind this event is to provide an informal supportive environment for our dancers to get together and dance for fun. Annette will facilitate the session, by encouraging everyone to dance within a group environment, alone or step about (no pressure). Dances from the workshop will be repeated during the session to help memorise the steps. We plan to include a few 2-hand dances which will be taught on the day. 

Live music music throughout.

We will run these events every few months, alternating between Lurgan (our home town) and Belfast. The first event was held in Lurgan as part of our CD Launch, and we all had a great time dancing together! Here's a link to some photos from the day:
