The Practice Session

Saturday, March 3

2:00 - 4:30 pm

“The Practice Session” is an afternoon of guided performance practice with a two-fold mission. This program is intended for:  1) dancers to practice improvised solo dancing with live music in a traditional Irish session, and 2) dancers and others who are learning to play instruments at a beginner/intermediate level to practice playing in an ensemble session, and playing for dancers. “The Practice Session” will be facilitated by musician Dan Accardi and Kieran Jordan, and is supported by a Fidelity Charitable grant, made possible through the generosity and recommendation of the James K Spriggs Foundation, a donor-advised fund.

Suggested donation $10-$20 or use your class card

Floor and Core

Future dates TBD - email if you are interested!

This is a meditative fitness class designed to refresh, restore, and condition the body. We will stretch, strengthen, and lengthen to traditional Irish music, focusing on alignment, core conditioning, and the luxury of releasing into the floor. A deep but gentle toning class for anyone seeking an afternoon of self-care! This class draws from Kieran’s favorite fitness and somatic practices, including yoga, pilates, Body-Mind Centering and Bartenieff Fundamentals. Please bring a mat.

$20 or use your class card

Class size is limited and preregistration is required. Email kieranjordandancers@gmail.com
