Irish & Ocean-Native Dance Classes Coming To Penn State In March
While you may have been dancing all weekend at THON, get ready for two new dance workshops coming to campus on March 1 and 3.
On March 1, Ocean-native artist group Small Island Big Song will teach two different dances via livestream. The event will cover a handful of topics, including chants, dances, and music from Taiwanese and Mauritian cultures.
This group is part of a collaborative project to unite islanders through musical traditions while driving awareness for the environmental and cultural issues that the islands face.
Small Island Big Song will also hold an in-person event on April 7 at Eisenhower Auditorium. There, the group will lead a multimedia event featuring the dances learned on March 1 along with performances from instrumentalists and vocalists from various islands.
Two days later on March 3, Penn State’s Irish Dance Team, Rince Na Leon, will lead students in Irish dance moves right in time for State Patty’s. Through the course, students can learn both a basic Irish jig and partnered dancing. All students are urged to attend, regardless of skill level.
This Irish dance workshop will take place from 6 to 7 p.m. in HUB 232. The event is free, but there is a suggested donation of $4.99. Registration is required through an online form.
