Traditional Irish Step Dancing

Irish Step Dancing- Traditional Flat DOWN style

Solo dancing, occasionally with partner; usually for performance with a small group. Can be either a flat sliding style or danced on the balls or the front of the feet.  A bit more relaxed body stance than with modern Irish step dancing (see below)  but not as loose and free flowing posture as Irish sean nós dance.

Traditional step dances are usually fully formed dances with specific steps, unlike sean nós dancing, which is more individual steps that are usually not danced in any specific order. Michael Tubridy, ex-Chieftain and Award winning Irish musician, has written a beautiful book called A Selection of Irish Traditional Step Dances with 10 dances, including The Priest in His Boots, which he is dancing here with Maureen Culleton:
