Colin’s classes focus largely on technique, particularly on helping dancers to find a sense of flow, rhythm and clarity in their movement and sound. Please note, that Colin´s masterclasses are not aiming for stamina and repertoire development.
This class, which has been developed by Colin with students in Irish step dance at the University of Limerick, will serve as an introduction to rhythmical improvisation in hard shoe. This requires that students are already comfortable and competent in hard show technique, and are open to exploring their creative side. We will be working with very simple Irish dance vocabulary so that students will be able to focus on the practice of improvising in real time with that material. This class is not suitable for beginners or for those students who are still working on basic rhythm and timing.
The nine-times World Champion, described by the Irish Post as “the greatest Irish Dancer of all time”, is a passionate teacher who has taught masterclasses all over the world. He is a guest tutor on the undergraduate and postgraduate courses in dance at The University of Limerick in Ireland.
For his solo show ‘Out of Time’ Colin was nominated for a UK Critics Circle National Dance Award (Best Male Dancer), and a UK Laurence Olivier Award (Outstanding Achievement in Dance). “Out of Time” has toured Internationally since 2008.
