The following is a project that I (Michael) wanted to do after attending Miguel Flamini’s class for several weeks at the Asheville YMCA. At the time that I had the idea, Susan and I were planning to buy some property in Asheville, knew we wouldn’t be traveling as much as we had been over the last year and a half and with winter coming on we knew we wouldn’t be hiking as much either so the opportunities for making videos would be greatly reduced. Being in class with Miguel and seeing his enthusiasm and the affect it has on his students first-hand, I thought he’d make a good subject for a video project and give me a chance to expand my recording and editing skills.
After much preparation and even more editing, I present to you the Zumba class led by Miguel Flamini at the Asheville YMCA.
Do you like Irish sean-nós dancing? If you’re asking “What’s that?” it’s like solo tap dancing to Irish tunes, older than Riverdance and modern step dancing, and all ages can do it. Sean-nós is a great style for dancing however the jigs move ya, even in a tiny pub.
Guess what? Brian Ó hAirt, a fantastic dancer and teacher, is coming to town at 1pm on April 23rd to teach a sean-nós workshop for $20 per student. The location will be our home in North Plano (near 121 & Independence). See below for more details and use our contact form to let us know if you’d like to attend.
When: 1pm on April 23rd.
Where: North Plano (contact us for directions)
We need to know:
Would you consider yourself a beginner, intermediate or advanced sean-nós dancer? Please pick one.
Would you be interested in a beginner, intermediate or advanced workshop? Please pick one.
