New This Year – Sean Nos Classes for Children

We’re kicking off the 2019 workshop on Friday with our first sean nos class for children, as well as an introduction to sean nos class for adults. The Friday adult class is a great way to get ready for the weekend workshop if you’ve never tried sean nos or percussive dance before.
