The SJC Celtic group was started 2 years ago by music teacher Amy Young and a small group of students who enjoyed playing in regular informal Celtic sessions at lunchtimes. This group has continued to grow, with students enjoying playing together and discovering the many complexities of rhythms and melodies across their broad Celtic repertoire. They have performed at many school events over the past couple of years and have become a staple group in the expanding music program at St Joseph’s.
The Victorian Irish Dance Academy will perform an energetic dance display incorporating the best of both traditional and modern Irish Dance styles. The dancers will perform group Céili dances such as ‘The 3 Tunes’ and ‘The Eight Hand Jig’ as well as fast-paced modern choreography reels and jigs in both hard and soft shoes.
