Join us for a free lecture by Edwina Guckian titled "The Dance Traditions of Ireland"

Edwina will talk about how she grew-up with the music and dance of her area in Ireland - Leitrim. She will explore the traditions experienced from an early age - hob nail boots and the strawboys to dancing on doors.  Edwina will discuss the different styles of dance in Ireland and how dance has evolved since the banning house dances and the introduction of the Dance Hall Act in 1935.  Questions during the lecture are welcomed!
