An Afternoon of Indian and Irish Dance

Sunday, August 20

Guest dancer/choreographer Shaily Dadiala, based in Philadelphia, will visit Kieran Jordan Dance Studio to share the art of Bharatanatyam, classical Indian dance. Shaily, along with Kieran Jordan, will demonstrate their respective styles of Bharatanatyam, and Sean-nós Irish dance, along with their work in progress on a collaborative duet exploring the theme of longing for home.

The dance demonstration will be followed by a Q & A between the audience and the performers.

The Practice Session

Thursday, August 24

6:30 - 9:00 pm

“The Practice Session” is an evening of guided performance practice with a two-fold mission. This program is intended for 1) dancers to practice the art of improvisational solo dancing with live music in a traditional Irish session, and 2) dancers who are learning to play instruments at a beginner/intermediate level to practice playing in an ensemble session, and playing for their fellow 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
