Students from all over the world will travel to Ireland, home of the Riverdance. Here they will participate in a two week intensive programme that will allow them to gain insight into the show that re-shaped Irish Cultural heritage. Students will be taught the original Riverdance choreography, will experience Irish arts both past and present and will examine the development of the music of the show from its ethnic roots through to its Grammy award winning climax.
Field trips to Irish Cultural and Heritage Centres around Ireland will further enhance the course experience as will evenings at traditional concerts, theatrical performances and historic cultural talks.
Fees include all travel and food during the field trips as well as tickets to the 20th Anniversary performance of Riverdance at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin and to various productions including performances at Ireland’s National Theatre, The Abbey Theatre.
Accommodation will consist of single en suite rooms on the historical main campus of Trinity College Dublin.
“We are delighted to be collaborating with Trinity, Ireland’s auspicious seat of learning and the leading cultural institutions, The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art and the Royal Irish Academy of Music, in this summer school. Twenty years on, the journey that is Riverdance continues, and with the aid of our prestigious collaborators we hope to share some of the knowledge that we have gathered along the way with our international participants,”
Moya Doherty, Riverdance producer.
