The Irish Percussive Dance Workshop in Lexington

Details on our 2022 workshop are forthcoming.

Calling all tappers, cloggers and step dancers! Since 2018, our two-day Irish dance workshop in Lexington has explored the roots of Irish and percussive dance styles, featuring instruction in sean nos dance, set dancing, percussive improvisation, Appalachian flatfooting and clogging.

We’re hoping our workshop will be able to happen in person and we’re looking forward to getting everyone back in Lexington. Check out the 2020 workshop lineup for a sample of course offerings.
