Founded by two classically trained brothers, Alexander and Danylo Fedoryka, they started out as street performers just out of school and became a band by accident. It was the good times and the people they played for that encouraged the band and pushed them forward into a career that really has matched the essence of our souls. 14 years and 2,000 shows later Scythian is still touring at festivals & music venues across the nation.
Named after Ukrainian nomads, Scythian (sith-ee-yin) plays roots music from Celtic, Eastern European and Appalachian traditions with thunderous energy, technical prowess, and storytelling songwriting, beckoning crowds into a barn-dance, rock concert experience.
Founded almost a decade ago, Nashville’s Music City Roots says Scythian is ‘what happens when rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling’, and the Washington Post dubbed them "DC's most energetic and eclectic band" and said “Scythian’s enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.”
Corda Mór was founded by the Gille family in 2004, and was a family-run business for many years. Fauna Gille is now the sole owner of the studio, and strives to uphold the strong foundation and values that her family established years ago.
Corda Mór means "great heart" -- and there is no greater heart than that of family. Our school was created with great heart, and 14 years later this spirit still thrives. Our community is made up of many families, who together have created one big family!
Corda Mór is more than a dance academy; it is a community of teachers and families who believe that, through dance, children learn more than physical skills – they build values and shape character that lasts a lifetime.
Our students begin dancing out of curiosity, continue because it’s fun, and commit themselves to it because a passion develops.
Through this passion for dance, they learn the values of teamwork and perseverance. They acquire humility in victory and graciousness in defeat. They share their joy of dancing with the community through performance, and develop friendships that outlast their dancing careers.
It is our mission at Corda Mór to create highly skilled, disciplined dancers and help shape them into kind, confident people who will be leaders within the dance community, and in life.
