  • Mindful Movement (online)

    5-week session

    This 60 minute class invites students to come into deeper presence and awareness — with a movement experience that fosters grounding, release, creativity, and energy flow. Drawing from somatic practices such as Bartenieff Fundamentals, Polarity Yoga, and dance improvisation, this is a restorative and enlivening class — set to slow airs, waltzes, and other lyrical selections from traditional Irish and Celtic music. Come nourish yourself with a gentle reboot! No experience necessary!

    Online classes are scheduled for Eastern Time. A Zoom link will be emailed to you 24 hours before the start of the first class. (Please make sure I have your correct email address.) Each class in this series will be recorded and made available to students for one week, before the next class.

    New Class! Sean-nós Dance “Signature Steps” (online)

    5-week session

    In this class, I will teach some of my favorite grooves and sequences that I perform as a sean-nós dancer. Take a trip inside my own quirky rhythmic brain — learning how I compose, name, remember, and refine the steps that then have my “signature.” We’ll also discuss YOUR creative process in improvising and creating, and share tips on how to hone your personal style. This class is for experienced dancers who are comfortable with improvising and learning at a quicker pace.
