Dan Furey Easy Hornpipe part 1 - a series of videos for home study
Now available for home study.
In this series of videos Annette will cover 3 of the Dan Furey hornpipes steps, these appear in Michael Tubridy's first book of dances. The remaining 2 steps along with an extra hornpipe step will be taught at this level in the "part 2" course - available as a separate course.
Annette learned these steps from Michael Tubridy of Co Clare, part of the beauty of this tradition is that it continues to be passed on from one generation to the next.
There will be an extra video of the full dance, ie the Dan Furey series of 5 steps, for those who have bought both part 1 and part 2.
For your information, the Dan Furey group currently meets online each month, providing an opportunity to dance Dan's repertoire with like minded soles/souls. These monthly events are free to attend, further information on the Dan Furey group can be found here.
Level 2 - for those with some experience, this could be 2 or 3 terms of Annette’s beginner class, or other percussive dance forms.
