Irish dance has a long and beautiful past, bringing together Irish communities through music and celebrations. Historians believe Irish dancing was widespread in Ireland by the seventeenth century, while the first document of the traditional dance dates back to a 1413 Christmas Eve party in southern Ireland. Irish dance can be performed solo, or in groups, and is performed for competitions, celebrations and social gatherings.
This type of dance still plays an integral role in Ireland’s rich culture. At the Irish Dance World Championships held in Dublin, dancers from 20 countries came to show the judges what they’ve got. One dance team in particular, the Fusion Fighters, put on a show that had everyone at the edge of their seats.
