A decade of Celtic culture on Rhythms of Ireland
IRELAND'S most celebrated show, The Rhythms of Ireland, returns to Australia in 2017 bringing their worldwide 10 Year Anniversary Tour to our shores.
Highly successful and critically acclaimed, The Rhythms of Ireland have enjoyed sell-out tours both worldwide and within Australia.
Irish dance, or Irish dancing, is a group of traditional dance forms, encompassing dancing both solo and in groups, and dancing for social, competitive and performance purposes.
Irish dance, in its current form, developed from influences such as French quadrilles and English country dancing throughout the 18th and 19th centuries.
Dance was taught by "travelling dance masters" across Ireland throughout this period, and separate dance forms developed according to regional practice and differing purposes.
Dance became a significant part of Irish culture, particularly for Irish nationalist movements.
From the early 20th century, a number of organisations promoted and codified the various forms of dance, creating competitive structures and standardised styles.
The show has been seen by over two-million people worldwide, gaining a reputation for "stunningly executed performances".
