McDONALD SCHOOL CHOREOGRAPHY 2013

This track is for the McDonald School of Irish Dance and it will be used in the U-15 Choreography at the Mid Atlantic Oireachtas, November 2013. The three tunes are all compositions of Tina’s: Tripod’s Frolics, Up and Down, McDonald School Dancers.

Dance teacher Amy Markwardt got in touch with Tina via email after having seen the video of a custom music track she did for a choreography in 2012. Amy had lots of exciting ideas for the music so worked closely together with Tina through emails to get the track right for her and her dancers. She requested Tripod’s Frolics, lots of key changes, harp, and funky beats all of which are jam packed into this track.

Thanks to Jessica Burton for putting down some amazing harp parts and to Fiona Wylie for recording the track.

SCOIL RINCE REALTA CHOREOGRAPHY 2012

Video:  Figure Dance for the 2012 World Irish Dance Championships, Belfast. Music by Tina Jordan Rees, choreography by Maeve Rankin, dancers from Scoil Rince Realta, Co. Down

Tina was asked by Maeve Rankin of Scoil Rince Realta, Co. Down, to arrange and record the music to go with the figure dance that she had choreographed for her dancers for the 2012 World Irish Dance Championships in Belfast.

The process began by Maeve sending Tina a rough video of the choreography which she studied thoroughly in order to create the music which would complement the dance to the highest level.

Maeve was then sent a rough recording of the music that Tina had come up with and as she was happy with it, the go ahead was given to record it in the studio. The first tune is “A Lovely Madness” written by Seán Óg Graham. The second and third tunes are both written by Tina Jordan Rees and are titled “November 9” and “Remember That One Time..”

Tina would like to thank Maeve, her fabulous dancers and exquisite choreography, for giving her the opportunity to do this. A big thanks also goes out to Fiona Wylie for doing such an excellent job with recording this piece of music.

Tina thoroughly enjoyed coming up with the music for this choreography and hopes that she will get the chance to do a lot more of it in the future. Good luck to Maeve and all her dancers 🙂
