TCPA Spotlight: Rhythm of the Dance

Rhythm of the Dance

From the creation of Rhythm of the Dance in 1998 (initially, the show was set up for a 3-week tour of the United States), it has toured consistently internationally and is achieving greater critical acclaim year after year.

This wonderful show continues to evolve thanks to the constant striving for perfection by its Director/Producer, choreographer, and composer to keep the show fresh and interesting so that audiences who attend performances regularly will always find some new and exciting elements within the program.

With a wonderful, gifted young cast of dancers, musicians, and singers featuring live performances from the entire troupe, this is a show that has won critical acclaim across 4 continents of the world in 50 countries to over 7 million fans. And now, after 20 Years of showcasing the very best in Irish dance to the world, the show has undergone a process of renewal, reinvigorating the choreography and music to create an even more spectacular performance. Producer Kieran Cavanagh is very excited about the updated format of the show, he hopes that Rhythm of the Dance will be a breath of fresh air into Irish dance with this traditionally rooted and authentic production.
