Brian Ó hAirt 'Teaching the Untaught: Modernity & Sean-nós Dance.'

Brian Ó hAirt was first exposed to sean-nós dancing as a teen at workshops taught by Róisín Ní Mhainín and Seosamh Ó Neachtain at the Milwaukee Irish Festival. In 2003 he was a prize winner at the Cruinniú na mBád Festival's sean-nós dancing competition held annually in Kinvara, Co. Galway where he was introduced to dancer Pádraic Ó hOibicín. He has since worked with and been inspired by Pádraic's unique dancing, while Brian's own dance style remains very much informed by his music making on box and concertina.
