2020 weekly classes

  • March 2020

  • Online Learning

    As we observe social-distancing to hopefully slow the spread of COVID-19, the Kieran Jordan Dance Studio is temporarily closed. Classes are cancelled at least through March 29, 2020.

    While the physical studio space is closed, I am finding ways to stay “open for business” online. I am exploring the possibilities for live online group classes. In the meantime, I’m offering the following options:

    1. Private lessons are available via Skype or Facetime, for 30, 45, or 60-minute lessons. I will work with you one-on-one, or with up to three people at a time in your household. Please email me to schedule a time, and let me know what style and level you need.
    2. Instructional videos can be sent to you via Youtube. Request a specific dance, and I will teach, record, upload, and send you a personal video lesson. For example, you may want to learn sean-nós steps, or step dancing jigs, reels, hornpipes, traditional sets, or one of my original choreographies. I will break down the dance, with video of my feet (from the back and the front) and send you a link to a private video. Please email me with your request.

     

    Both of these options are available for adults or kids. Filming will be low-tech, on my laptop or phone.

    Pricing is flexible. My usual private lesson rate is $75 per hour for an in-studio lesson. But I want everyone who wants to dance to be able to afford instruction, especially during this period of social isolation and sedentary hours of working from home. I have included a sliding scale of payment options in the menu on the right. Please pay what you can afford.

    More options:

    If you’re interested in detailed sean-nós dance instruction with professional video quality, consider ordering my Musical Feet videos, which are available on DVD or as streaming/download videos.

    Would you like an online PERFORMANCE of Irish traditional music or dance in your home? Musicians and dancers (including me) are offering 10-minute custom performances, sent to you via video link or live streaming, while we are unable to perform in theaters, clubs, pubs, etc. Visit Tune Supply.

    Please note! I am performing and teaching old-style Irish step dancing and sean-nós. Both styles were traditionally danced in homes, in small spaces, with no hand-touching or partnering! Adding dance to your life at home will provide stress relief, mindfulness, exercise, and fun, during this challenging time.

    I hope to dance with you (in whatever format) soon!
