Atlantic Steps is the inspiring epic story of Ireland’s oldest dance form, portrayed through the music, song, dance and Atlantic-Ocean-inspired energy of the Connemara region. Centered around the joyful sean-nós (old style) dance of extraordinary Irish dancer Brian Cunningham, the show continues to move festival and theatre audiences to their feet, bringing sean-nós dance to its rightful place on the world stage.
Having performed alongside Irish greats including Dé Danann, The Chieftains, Sharon Shannon, Altan, Dervish & Téada. Brian brought his dancing talents to headline the high profile Volvo Ocean Race spectacular in Galway during 2009. When 20,000 people danced the night away at Galway’s docklands within striking distance of the Atlantic Ocean, Brian was convinced of the worldwide potential of the sean-nós (old style) dance, handed down from his grandparents as a tradition from the days of house dances.
