Thurs 14th Sept
A fundraising event for Longford Slashers Ladies & Minor Clubs
Anam brings together the skills of five world-class step dancers from the US, Canada and Ireland in an exhilarating fusion of hard shoe step styles.
Authentic and raw, this percussive dance piece explores the similarities and differences between the dancers, each with their own distinct hard shoe style. Anam attests to the tradition of ‘passing on’; celebrating the dance’s essential spirit, yet injecting it with fresh energy to create something new.
Featuring dancers Matthew Olwell (Appalachian Flat Foot) Jonathan Kelliher (North Kerry “Munnix”) Nathan Pilatzke (Ottawa Valley, Canada)and John Fitzgerald (Modern Irish), this uplifting show is performed to live music and song composed by acclaimed Irish musician Fergal Ó Murchú, Mikey Smith (pipes and tin whistle) and Joseph McNulty (bodhrán and guitar).
With 4 & 5 star reviews across the board this was one of the hit shows of the Dublin Dance Festival. Catch it when the tour touches down in Longford for one night only
This tour is funded by the Arts Council.
