1 Tracy Butler Booth Ireland
“The Blackbird”, an Irish traditional solo set dance. This is believed to be the oldest of the traditional set dances, the set composed by a Limerick dance master named Keily as far back as 1820. The tune itself, also a song, is believed to be very much older. This old-style version of the dance includes the “Grandfather Step”, a hornpipe step composed by Tracy’s great‑grandfather, Tim Butler of Enniscorthy.
“The Priest and His Boots”, a form of set dance (danced to the tune of the same name) in jig tempo. Tracy learned this dance from Michael Tubridy who got it from Dan Furey, a dancing master from Labasheeda, County Clare who contributed greatly to the survival of the old style step-dances. With its gentle, stylish elements, “The Priest” has proved a popular and easy dance to learn among fans of old style both at home and abroad.
We are a Japanese traditional dance group called “ODORIKKO” which was established several years ago by 14 Japanese ladies all living in Ireland. We perform one of the traditional Japanese dances known as “NIHOMBUYO” at cultural events relating to Japan and secondary schools for their transition year students. Our commitment is to encourage as many people in Ireland as possible to experienceJapanese culture.
