Sean Nos Original Painting

Sean Nós

Sean nós is a traditional Irish solo dance. In Irish ‘Sean nós’ means ‘old style’. This form of Irish dancing is more casual compared to the formal and competition based Irish Stepdance.

The Sean nós dance features low to the ground footwork, improvised steps with free movement or swinging of the arms.

Michael Flatley is an Irish-American dancer who put Irish dancing on the map. His style of Irish dancing was similar to the Sean nós dance. He would use lots of upper body movement and free arm movements.

Sean nós dancers follow the music closely and use improvisation for a free expression dance form. Dancing groups do not use choreography because the dancers usually dance in turns and play off the energy of one another.

Sean nós dancers tend to wear less formal street clothing. The dancers shoes can be hard or soft and capable of percussive sound.

The Sean nós Dance can be performed on a variety of surfaces including wooden floors, a door without hinges, a table or the top of a stool.

This dance is most popular in the west of Ireland around Donegal, Mayo, Galway and Clare.
