Aer Arran Step © Rónán Regan
Rónán wrote this step in the older sean-nós dance style when living on Inis Meáin in the summer of 2004. In fact he wrote it on the way over to the island while on an Aer Arann flight. Johnny O'Halloran's music was ringing in his ears and his toes and heels were silently composing. He tapped it out 'i gceart' once safely on dry land!
Breakdown of Aer Arran Step
Part one is an introduction to the step composed in 2004 by Rónán and the first part from behind.
Parts 1 & 2 Together
Part one is an introduction to the step composed in 2004 by Rónán and a breakdown of the first 2 parts.
All Four Parts
Putting the four parts together firstly on the right leg and then on the left leg. Tip: Leave out the 'and' when dancing it on the left leg. As always, please feel free to ask questions to aid your learning experience.
Part 2 is then taught here. This is also broken down from the back.
Parts 3 & 4
The third and forth part are taught here. NB: The third part is a little trickier rhythmically.
From Behind With Music
All four parts danced on both the right and left from behind with music. Well done! you're getting there, practicing with music from behind, before mastering the step at full speed.
