The Irish dances

About the Irish dance usually speak so: heels which have shaken the world.

The Irish culture has joined already more than 6,5 million person which has visited about two thousand of representations of the Irish show. Time having got on performance, people come again and again, and here already more than 6 years the Irish show "Riverdance" walks on a planet under Celtic music in beat step.

Interest to the Irish dance is connected, first of all, with a unusual pose of the dancer. Dance is executed on short toe, the top part of a trunk is motionless, hands are always lowered. The basic accent is done for fast work of legs. Training to this kind танца-not less grasping, than its contemplation.

The first data on the Irish dances are dated XI century From now on at us there are first data on dancing parties of the Irish peasants which refer to feis, however the description of dances for the first time has appeared in the middle of XVI century and was vast enough and not clear.

Today the Irish dances have won all world. Dancing schools involve set of pupils not only in the Ireland, but also in many other things the countries. The Irish dances became popular everywhere.

Four large competitions - the National championship of America, All-Irish the championship, Championship Great Britain and the World championship are on a regular basis spent. On traditions, the World championship passes in Ireland, and on it there arrive thousand dancers for which the worthy result in the championship can become the beginning of star career. For example, in 1998 the World championship which is passed in Ennis (Ennis), has collected three thousand participants and seven more thousand trainers, teachers and fans.

Now there are three main kinds of the Irish dance: solo, kaily and set.

Solo dance basically acts as a show prepared by masters, or as a competitive kind. It demands professionalism and many years of experience.

Kaily, merit Gels of League, is group of dances of folklore Irish layers (long dances in a line and dances in a circle) and the dances, created is artificial. Kaily (the sequence and a set of figures) have rigidly fixed structure: now it was not so quick rural entertainment, and dance by the regulated rules, uniform for all places and people. For kaily jumps and hands densely pressed to the case - " hands on seams " are characteristic.

Set-dances have appeared a little later after the Irish soldiers who have come back from wars of Napoleon, have brought with themselves a quadrille - four pairs the friend opposite to the friend, forming a square. The quadrille with the increased rate and actually Irish movements also began to refer to сет. Sets consist of figures - the movements executed in certain sequence. The number of figures can be a miscellaneous - from two six, and everyone with the size - an irish jig (6/8), reel (4/4) or hornpipes (4/4). In сете there are no jumps, characteristic for step-dances, but because of set of versions of steps dance looks rather variously.

Dance the Irish dances in different orders. It can be as the suits made on the basis of clothes of peasants of the eighteenth century (for example, with a greater scarf on a shoulder - for women and in kilt - for men), and other imitations: a waistcoat with a lot of buttons and bridges as a man's variant and a skirt up to anklebones and black corsets as female.
