The Story of Irish Dance

The Story of Irish Dance


The Irish American Heritage Museum hosts The Story of Irish Dance on March 13 at 7:00 PM. 

Admission | $8 members, $10 non-members

STEPTUNE! are a brand new trio packed with foot percussion, dance tunes, and songs. NY based fiddler Oona Grady and multi-instrumentalist James Gascoyne partner with pan-traditional percussive step dancer, Danielle Enblom. Together, they create a unique and innovative show with driving rhythms, contemplative arrangement, original compositions, and traditional favorites. They will take us through the history of Irish dance in their show "Choreographing Ireland: An Examination of the Evolution of Dance Forms in Ireland."

Danielle is the only performer/practitioner/researcher in the country who has a background in modern Irish step dance, old-style Irish step dance, and sean-nos dance who also practices North American forms of traditional percussive dance.
