Ireland dance trip deadline extended

The chance to experience the culture of Ireland while learning new dance techniques is being offered to all TCC students.

Dance associate professor Amy Sleigh, who will be the tour leader for the trip, said it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“We will start in Shannon and end up in Dublin,” she said. “Students will get a chance to attend a traditional Irish dance class, a music and dance feast, the Dublin dance festival that will showcase international artists, and on day eight, perform impromptu dances held in various places in Dublin. It’s a lot like a flash mob.”

The class has no prerequisites, and students can take the class for credit hours or just for fun, Sleigh said.

“An interest in dance obviously helps, but students without that interest will have other opportunities. They just have to be willing,” she said.

Interested students will need to request an application from Sleigh that is due Feb. 1 and complete the EF College tour enrollment deadline by Feb. 3. Accepted students will then be enrolled in the World Dance course 1305. For more information, contact Sleigh at amy.sleigh@tccd.edu or 817-515-7174.
