Stephanie Keane

Dancer Stephanie Keane hails from Limerick city, where she learned Irish Step Dancing and competed at World Championship Level. Since moving to East Clare 15 years ago, she has pursued her passion to discover her own style and expression of dance through immersing herself in the tradition of the Sean Nós style of dance and learning Irish traditional tunes in her feet. By pushing the boundaries of her own dance experience, developing a deep appreciation for the nuances of this old-style dance and exploration with rhythms and music from other cultures, Stephanie has developed her own unique style of free-style Irish dance and is an established traditional Irish dance artist, performer and teacher. She continues to evolve as an artist, working on new projects in film production, theatre, dance choreography and sound production. 


In 2020, Stephanie received a Project Award with the Arts Council of Ireland. Through exploration of the musicality of Sean nos dance in collaboration with musician Cormac Begley, she directed, produced and choreographed a short dance film called Eist (Listen). Eist received the Grand Prize at the Cannes Dance film festival in November 2023. 

In 2023, she received a Bursary award with the arts Council to research and develop her choreographic dance practice.
