Aidan Vaughan

 

Aidan Vaughan was born and reared in Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare during the 1940’s and has been dancing and playing the drums since he was 9 years of age. His style was greatly influenced by the music of his area and he says he learned all his dancing by watching and listening to the dancers of West Clare when they were stepping it out in a set. Known as one of the modern day great dance masters of Ireland, Aidan has travelled the world teaching his style of dancing and is one of the annual dancing teachers at Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy where he passes on his legendary battering steps.
