Irish Traditional Tap Dance Celtic Legends

Venue: National Centre for the Performing Arts - Opera House
Dates: February 17-21, 2018


Celtic Legends brings you 100% live traditional Irish dance, music and song creating an electric atmosphere which has swept countless international audiences away to the heart of Ireland.

Born in the wild and beautiful hills of Connemara in Ireland back in 2002, Celtic Legends recreates the art form in its own way by stripping it down to the bare essentials, presenting a traditional dance show which has a more vital feel. With cast members that are more creative and dynamic, audiences are more engaged and everyone leaves the show feeling they have been more involved and have had more of an insight into what Ireland really is.

The music is traditional at its core with all of Ireland’s national instruments, the fiddle driving frenetic reels, the great Irish drum known as the Bodhran beating out the driving rhythms of the band, the plaintive uileann pipes calling back to days of yore with beautiful and haunting slow airs.

The Celtic Legends dancers take the stage with brilliant flashes of speed. All of them are experienced despite their youth, they have been performing from an early age winning many world championships and touring with performances like Riverdance and Lord of the Dance.
