Green Island dance and music
Erin's Heartbeat . A unique show of dance and live music that will take you to Ireland, the Green Island, the Emerald Isle of exceptional natural beauty and cultural diversity. From the cheerful atmosphere of an authentic Irish pub, with the mystical melodies of the Celtic world, to the pompous creations of dance music, from Irish vivacity to Celtic dream. The development and diversity of Irish dance and music over time is presented by the collaboration between the Irish School of Dance SIP and the musical group Noreia, both from Ljubljana.
ŠIP - Šola Irskega plesa
The idea of the dance school was born from the Irish Joan Mcintyre, who lived for several years in Ljubljana in Slovenia. After her return to Ireland a few years ago, the school's management was taken over by Karja Granda. Since its opening in 2005, the school has offered Irish dance classes that can be followed by people of all ages.
Noreia is a band made up of five experienced musicians who play Irish, Scottish and Breton melodies, but not always in a traditional way. Recently, the group has actively integrated the Celtic tradition with the national one, Slovenian folk music, creating a unique and recognizable style. It boasts collaborations with many well-known names in Irish music: Donal Lunny, Tola Custy, Donncha & Diarmaid Moynihan, Maurice Lennon and many more.
