De Betovering festival

After a successful Betovering festival in 2019, Kilkenny School of Irish Dance is excied to annouce that we are again part of the Betovering Festival. Come and try some Irish Dancing during the Festival in the autumn break!
Irish Dancing became known in the Netherlands after the Riverdance show during the Eurovision Songfestival in 1994, but Irish Dancing itself goes back many centuries and can be done in many different forms and styles. Most important is the footwork, which is often amazingly fast. And at the same time you have to try and keep your upper body and arms straight! During this workshop you’ll be introduced to a number of styles with the so-called ‘soft shoe’ and ‘hard shoe (a kind of tap dance shoe), there will be demo’s and you’ll get a chance to learn a few basic dance steps yourself. Please check the programme at www.debetovering.nl and register for one of the Irish Dance workshops on Wednesday 21 October and Thursday 22 2020.

Dear teachers, dancers and parents.

It is with utmost pleasure that we invite you to our annual Kilkenny Feis ( Irish Dancing Competition)  in the Adelbert College Auditorium, Wassenaar, The Netherlands 23rd and 24th  Sept 2017. It’s a great opportunity to start the new dance year by trying out new steps in a friendly competitive manner.

Building on the success of last year we will also offer competitions in playing a musical instrument, singing a Celtic Song and saying one of your favorite Irish-Celtic poems on stage during the lunch break Saturday for all those Under 17.

This element of our planned weekend for Adults will take place Saturday evening in O Caseys Irish Bar downtown in the city of The Hague with a Dance Off as well.

In conjunction with the Trad Music workshopswill be offered in Irish Music.

And of course lots of lovely food freshly prepared by our parent foundation ChairdeKSID.
