“Michael “Mikey” Prine stumbled into the Irish dance world as a senior in high school and competed with the Haney School of Irish dance in San Diego at the Championship level. Michael’s love for Irish dance and music has given him the opportunity to perform with some of his favorite Irish bands. This includes such greats as the Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, Natalie MacMaster, Lunasa, Derek Warfield of the Wolfe Tones, and six time Grammy winners, The Chieftains. Michael’s enthusiasm for his Irish culture extends far beyond just step dancing. Michael is one of the premier sean-nós (old style) dancers on the West Coast, studying and performing with the great Ben Power of Liverpool, England.
