also off topic, but Jean-Claude Berthiaume the french canadian step dancer and caller who's toured with a number of bands .. Mentioned that some years ago he went to Ireland and wanted to study Irish stepdancing - the teacher said have you got a year or so to stay?
In the middle of the dance class - while he was doing his thing in the back - the teacher came over and looked and said do you realize what youre doing? thats sean-nos dancing (which had pretty much disappeared in Ireland) it was more relaxed and low to the ground..
So they spent quite a bit of time filming and studying Jean Claude's dancing and - hes even been recorded for posterity demonstrating the old style of dancing that has survived in Quebec.
