Rhythm of the Dance

The National Dance Theatre of Ireland in a traditional Irish dance and musical stage show

If Michael Jackson's "Beat It" video were filmed in County Limerick, it would probably look a lot like, MO
Feels like a tap dance

Straight from Dublin's The National Dance Company of Ireland, comes an inspiring musical epic that relives the historic journey of the Irish Celts through a brilliant marriage of dance, song, and story. Richly costumed, beautifully lit, and brilliantly performed by twenty-two vibrant dancers, three soaring tenors, and the lilting, driving sound of a live band, Rhythm of the Dance will swell your senses with the 'terrible beauty' of the Irish experience at home and abroad, from deep and sorrowful airs to the intoxicating joy of laughter and life that encompass a thousand years of a history rich in the textures of hardship and resilience, music and dance. Whether you're a die-hard fan of Irish step dancing, or are discovering it for the first time, you'll thrill to the Rhythm of the Dance
