Pádraic Ó hOibicín, Sean-nós Dancer in Residence 2016
Sep 12 2016 Posted: 09:41 IST

Páraic Ó hOibicín, Sean-nós Dancer in Residence at the Centre for Irish Studies, NUI Galway in 2016, will offer a series of five sean-nós dance workshops this Autumn which will take place in An Taibhdhearc and commence at 7pm, on 21 September 2016. 

A native of Lettermuckoo, Connemara, Páraic Ó hOibicín is one of a generation of dancers who led the revival of sean-nós dance in the late twentieth century.  Key to Páraic’s style of dancing, is a faithful nod to older dancers and the tradition that he saw in his youth.

The workshops are free and open to all.

This project is funded by Ealaín na Gaeltachta, Údarás na Gaeltachta and An Chomhairle Ealaíon in association with the Centre for Irish Studies at NUI, Galway.
