What is Irish Step Dance?


Irish dancing is an ancient art form that is still evolving today. It fuses balletic movements and percussive steps generally without the use of arms and emphasizing an upright and proud posture. Many styles of this dance form existed in Ireland and came to America during Irish Immigration. Irish dance fused with African Dance movements and influenced the creation of American Tap Dance.  In 1994 Riverdance the Show was created and the dance form became a worldwide phenomenon. Riverdance is still in production today and is one of the most successful shows in the world.  Irish Dance is an intense athletic activity and has a highly competitive element. Dancers from around the world compete at the World Championships once a year.
