How to dance 3 simple Irish sean nos REEL steps

Nora Stewart Passionate Irish Dance Teacher, Udemy

  • Did you always want to learn to do Irish dancing but never got the chance?
  • Do you love Irish music but not sure what to do next?
  • Not interested in competing or wearing a strange wig?

The program is for ordinary people-men and women-who love to dance or love the music, would like to understand more about the rhythm and want to start at the beginning.

This program aims to give clear instruction to learning 3 very simple sean nós steps for a specific dance routine, as seen on YouTube. Dancing to Irish music can also be a great way to understand the structure and rhythm better, and can help to play Irish music more fluently.

I will teach you about the rhythm of the music and style of the dance, as these two elements are critical to Irish sean nós dancing.

What is Irish sean nós dancing?

Irish sean nós (old-style) dancing is probably the oldest form of Irish dancing that is still around, and it's getting more popular by the day. The style is loose and free style, moving hips, knees and arms, and makes a great sound. Most importantly, will make you feel great when you are doing it!
