When St. Patrick’s Day celebrations push all things Irish into the spotlight, you may start thinking about adding Irish dancing to your skill set. But will it interfere with your concert dance training? A dancer trained in Irish dance and ballet compares the forms.
March is also Women’s History Month so this is a great opportunity to educate your students with a little history lesson. Introduce through books, film, photos, or words, dance visionaries and groundbreakers like Isadora Duncan, Loie Fuller, Martha Graham, Maria Tallchief, Anna Pavlova, Janet Collins, Eleanor Powell… and so so so many others!
