One of Ireland’s leading professional sean-nós dancers and winner of TG4’s talent show ‘Glas Vegas’ in 2009, Sibéal went on to perform in Las Vegas, Electric Picnic, Celtic Connections and The National Concert Hall among other notable venues. She learned classical ballet, jazz and contemporary from the age of 5 and is currently developing her choreographic practice in the range of Irish traditional and contemporary dance. A real must for all budding dancers both young and old.
Sibéal Davitt is a Dublin-born choreographer, dancer and teacher. Her style of dance is influenced by contemporary, classical and ‘sean-nós’ dance, having trained in all styles from an early age. She originally learned her steps from her mother who is a native of Tourmakeady, Co. Mayo.
In 2009 she won ‘Glas Vegas’, a national talent competition televised on TG4, and subsequently performed in Las Vegas and at leading venues around the world. In 2014 Sibéal received her MA in Contemporary Dance Performance with first class honours at University of Limerick. Subsequently she was awarded Dance Ireland’s Mentored Residency Award under world renowned performer Colin Dunne.
As part of Ireland’s 1916 commemorations, Sibéal performed in RTÉ’s ‘Centenary’ which was televised live on Easter Monday from the Bord Gáis Theatre. In April 2016, Sibéal performed ‘Fógraím / I Proclaim’ as part of ‘Embodied’, a series of 6 solos by Irish female choreographers commissioned by GPO: Witness History Public Art Commission and Dublin Dance Festival.
Sibéal will perform new work entitled 'Hear This Dance' with concertina player Niall Vallely at 'Scene + Heard' at Smock Alley Theatre in Dublin on 3 March 2018. Sibéal teaches regular sean-nós dance classes in Dublin. For more information visit https://sibealdavitt.com/.
