Rhythm of the Dance
Produced by the National Dance Company of Ireland

February 16th, 2018

Show Time: 7pm

Rhythm of the Dance is two hours of dance, music and song, richly costumed, representing a whole new concept in Irish entertainment, using the genuine spirit of Ireland’s national dances, songs and storytelling, whilst including modern influences like Beat, Jazz and Latin combine to give you Rhythm- Rhythm- Rhythm.

Produced by the National Dance Company of Ireland, since its debut performance in 1999, Rhythm Of The Dance has played to over 5 million fans in 33 countries worldwide. The new show is an inspiring epic, reliving the journey of the Irish Celts throughout history with a new script.

Using the traditional and modern arts of dance (ballet, modern dance, jazz) and music, this richly costumed show marries the contemporary and the ancient.

Combining traditional Irish dance and music with the most up to date stage technology, the show is a thousand year old story executed with all the advantages of the modern day stage show. It is truly a celebration of all things Irish.

“The dancing is magical; truly wonderful and uplifting! Dad would have so enjoyed this show.”
- Ava Astaire (daughter of Fred Astaire, grew up on movie sets, “Funny Face”, “Top Hat”, “Swing Time”, and “Easter Parade”, lived in Ireland for the last 35 years, recently moving back to California)

“My father would have envied some of the incredible moves these dancers execute. Very, very impressive indeed!”
- Bridget Kelly (daughter of Gene Kelly)
