Traditional Irish culture transcends its folk roots and engages not just the ear, but also the eye in the performances of the Solas An Lae (SAL) School of American Irish Dance. “Solas An Lae,” which is pronounced sullus un lay and is Gaelic for “light of day,” itself has a sonorous sound, hinting at the rich interplay of dance, narrative, music and film created by SAL directors Deirdre Lowry and Patrick Brown. Lowry takes the moves of classic step dances as her starting point, creating a synthesis of styles that her student dancers perform with energy and flair that are thoroughly American.
