More than 2,000 years of dance, music, songs and culture from pre-Celtic times to modern day sounds are compacted into one performance. It’s full of flailing feet and fiddles, futuristic dances, eye-catching lighting and costumes, sensational sound effects and is now one of the top 3 Irish step dance shows in the world.
Apart from having World and Irish champion dancers, Rhythm Of The Dance features some of the finest Traditional musicians, masters of Uilleann pipes, Irish Bodhran, fiddles, flutes, accordions, banjo and whistles. Amazing singers set a mood as mournful as a foggy coast and as joyful as a field of green. Perhaps it’s the combination of having the crème de la crème of live performers, intertwined with the latest technology, that takes audiences on an exhilarating trip through the ages. Dancers have literally just seconds to make 25 costume changes during the show.
