About

Join elite former principal Irish dancer of Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance - Josephine Brennan King - for a high-octane experience that celebrates the centuries-old story, culture, and heritage behind Irish dancing. Gain insights into the work of charismatic Dance Masters who historically taught Irish dancing and how communities socialized by dancing at crossroads after harvesting.

Learn the steps from the centuries-old Sean Nós style dancing to the iconic steps of Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. End with an Irish hooley party culminating in a heart-soaring choreographed Irish dance-off by the crossroads at historic Down Cathedral. Leave with an Irish dancing medal and certificate as a memento.

“Let us take you on a journey like never before, you’ll stamp, clap and dance and be left wanting more. 

Bang out a rhythm, like a Riverdance Star, You’ll all howl with laughter, then…… maybe Guinness at the bar”
