The Ganley Sisters are two award winning dancers who have been featured on a number of TV shows including RTE and TG4. They will be staging an Adult Sean Nós (12.15) and Jiving workshop (1pm) and a Children's Junior Jiving workshop (2pm) and Sean Nós workshop (2.45pm). The Adult classes are just £7 each or the two classes are just £12, the children's classes are just £5 for each 45 minute session.

Sandra and Laura run Sean Nós classes all over Mayo and run the National Jiving Juniors Academy which has now branched out into almost every County in Ireland. Their visit to Manchester will also coincide with their attendance at the annual Mayo Association of Manchester Dinner Dance before they fly off again to tour the USA with Wild West Tours in March.

Sean Nós dancing meaning 'Old style' is the traditional style of Irish dance in Ireland. The rhythmic steps are kept very close to the floor, with loose upper body movement. It has become extremely popular in the last few years.

To book the Sean Nós or Jiving workshop, just email stating which class and time you would like to book, places are limited and early booking is recomended.
