Reel Steps from Co Mayo, Online Workshop
'Step with Annette' is excited to offer this pre-summer online workshop!
Teaching a series of reel steps, originally from Patrick Touhey of Co Mayo. The steps were given to her by Patrick O'Dea - who received them from Matt Feerick in Fermoy, Co Cork. Matt was originally from Mayo and a pupil of Patrick Touhey.
There is very little repertoire original to Co Mayo available today, which makes these steps extra special.
For your information, each of the 4 steps have the same ending which aids learning. This workshop is aimed at the improver/intermediate dancer or above. For those who attended the Leitrim Dance Project at Easter, you may have seen me dance them with Jackie O'Riley one evening. I gave them to her a number of years ago and we love dancing them together.
If you have any questions, drop me a line here - 😊
Workshop Date: Tuesday 30 May, 2023
Workshop: 19.00 - 21:00 hrs (Irish time)
During the workshop we will work through each of the steps in turn.
After class you will receive:

NB You can book online for more than 1 person, numbers will be capped.
