"O body swayed to music, O brightening glance, How can we know the dancer from the dance?" ~Among School Children, W.B. Yeats (1865-1939)

The Irish Diaspora brought the music and dance culture of Ireland in all its various forms. Solo Irish dance includes the most well-known form, Irish step dance, which is practised competitively throughout the world. Ceili dancing (afolk dance form repopularized during the Gaelic reivival of the late 19th century) along with country set dancing (couple dancing based on quadrilles) have both enjoyed a resurgence since the 1980s. Sean-nós (old style) music and dance, a dance form characterized by "low to the ground" footwork, free movement of the arms, improvisation, and emphasis upon a "battering step" (which sounds out the accented beat of the music), has specific regional styles, and often learned informally.

This tartan was designed by William C (Rocky) Roeger III to honor anyone with Irish Heritage, regardless of clan affiliation or nationality. The colour green represents people of Irish heritage. The colour black is for the strife that Ireland has endured. The colour white is for the bright future of Ireland.

For a favorite amateur video of The Bodhran Boys, accompanying each other and showing off their drum skills and Sean-Nós steps in a home kitchen on a plywood dance floor, click the traditional modern step dancing girls.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
