Dance Limerick is delighted to announce that renowned dance artist and choreographer Mary Nunan will lead the new season of Contemporary Dance Classes for Adults, beginning on Tuesday 20 September at 6pm.
Tues 20 Sept - Tues 25 Oct (six weeks)
6pm-7.15pm | Dance Limerick Studio
€60.00 (six weeks)
*Free Taster Class on Culture Night, Friday 16 September at 6pm in the Studio*
The aim of these new classes is to provide an opportunity for participants to develop the skill and confidence to dance with ease. Informed by postmodern dance and somatic principles, each class will begin with simple warm-up exercises and build progressively towards more expansive movement phrases which travel out into the space.
All of the activities are based on practices/techniques which will help to release tensions which limit the range of movement. This will, in turn, allow each person to move with greater clarity and efficiency, to regain a sense of the natural flow of their movement and to enjoy their own unique dancing body.
Mary Nunan is a contemporary dance artist/choreographer, performer and teacher. She started her professional career as a member of Dublin Contemporary Dance Theatre (1981-86) and went on to become a founder member and Artistic Director of Daghdha Dance Company in Limerick from 1988-1999. During this period she created a substantial body of critically acclaimed solo and ensemble choreographies for the company.
Mary was Course Director of the MA Contemporary Dance Performance at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at UL from 1999-2016. She is a very experienced teacher who has taught extensively, nationally and internationally, in a range of contexts. Mary enjoys teaching at every level – from beginners to professional master classes.
Through a combination of performance platforms, residency opportunities, master classes, talks and lectures, Dance Limerick will advocate for artistic dialogue and exchange. In collaboration with dance artists across a range of practices, Dance Limerick will promote the creation of new and innovative work and will devise programmes of access, engagement and participation for the wider public.
Based at the premises of the former Daghdha Dance Company, Dance Limerick houses offices and a fully equipped studio space along with a separate performance venue known as the Daghda Space
