Gaelforce Dance

Gaelforce Dance

Details

Gaelforce Dance, the celebration of Irish dance, music and song, has dynamically tapped its way into the beating hearts of millions of audience members worldwide since its inception in 1999. This Dance spectacular has enjoyed tremendous success on a global scales performing in over 30 countries, across 4 continents and playing to over 2 million people.

Gaelforce Dance is the story of two lovers, Lorcan and Aisling who, as our tale begins, are blissfully unaware of the passion that will erupt between them, leading the lovers into a maelstrom of forbidden love and their community into a cauldron of hate. As the story begins, a chance meeting sparks the ill-fated affair where broken loyalties and jealousy tear two brothers apart. Only after the ultimate tragedy are the brothers once more united.

Produced by Michael Durkan, choreographed by Richard Griffin and music composed by Colm O’Foghlu, Gaelforce Dance is a show that expertly weaves intricate choreography, thundering rhythms, enchanting melodies and a compelling storyline into a stirring tale of Love, Passion and Tragedy. It is due to these incredibly innovative elements that in 2010 Gaelforce Dance was the winner of IQ Magazines ‘Limelight Award’ for Best Dance Spectacular beating all other Irish dance shows in its category.

“Gaelforce Dance, the unmissable two hour spectacular, has brought over 1 million to their feet worldwide as audiences and the media hail Gaelforce Dance as the Ferrari of the Irish dance world.”
