The National Dance Company of Ireland, featuring The Young Irish Tenors are at Swansea Grand Theatre in the resplendent and rousing new stage production, Rhythm of the Dance.
The show heralds a new era in Irish entertainment, featuring thirty dancers, a traditional live full Irish band, and the dashing and handsome Young Irish Tenors.
Internationally rated as one of the most popular and successful Irish Step Dance shows on tour, critics, audiences, and millions of fans around the world, have hailed the live show as a must see.
The National Dance Company of Ireland’s performers are not only an assemblage of beautiful Irish lassies, and handsome Irish lads, sporting colourful Celtic-themed costumes, tapping and stomping out century-old beats; they are also a special collection of incredible young Irish dancers, singers, and musicians. A crowd favourite, one of the company dancers, a star in her own write, specialises in the ancient Sean Nos dance style.
All the music is performed live on stage by musicians, who play rare and haunting musical instruments throughout the show, like the Celtic Bouzouki, the Cittern, the Octave mandolin, the melodeon (Irish accordion), Tea Whistle and Pennywhistle flutes, century-old harps, banjos, fiddles, guitars and various hand drums.
With standing ovations from over 4.8 million people in fifty-nine countries, don’t miss this chance to witness this stirring spectacle that is Rhythm of the Dance.
