Kieran Jordan: Musical Feet
A Sean-nós Irish Dance Tutorial DVD
A really fine video by my great friend Kieran Jordan, artistic director of Atlantic Steps, who I first danced with in Boston (and play and dance with as often as I can). It builds steps gradually from simple to complex. Easily digestible and excellent for beginners.
Dance Sean-nós: steps for traditional improvised dance
Maldon Meehan and Ronan Regan
This is another excellent sean-nós dance tutorial video by Maldon Meehan, founder of sean-nós Northwest, who I first danced with and played for when I was in Limerick. It has some really interesting and eventually somewhat complex steps on it. Great stuff.
Secrets of the Sole: Irish Dance Steps and Stories with Kieran Jordan, featuring Kevin Doyle and Aidan Vaughan
A really charming DVD in which Kieran discusses traditional Irish dance with two of her favourite dancers, while showing off the dancing of Kevin, Aidan and Kieran herself.
