Danceperados of Ireland – An authentic show of Irish music, song & dance

The enthusiasm for Irish step dancing is firmly embedded in the name of the show. Dancing, singing and playing music is part of the Irish DNA and the Danceperados are no exception. They are mad to dance.

When it comes to measuring quality of a step dance show many focus on the dancers only. The Danceperados match it with the quality of their singers and musicians. They all enjoy highly successful solo careers, have recorded many award winning albums and are inspirational for the up and coming generation of Irish musicians.

The shows choreographer is Michael Donnellan – a two time World champion. He was lead dancer with Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. He is regarded as one of the greatest Irish dancers of all time. He embraced the challenge of not only creating impressive dance items but to adapt them to the storyline.

The trademark of the collective is the absence of playback which is widespread in the other dance shows. When it is implied in your name that you are mad to dance, you have to do it live! Playing safe and falling back on playback is against the ethos of the Danceperados. Playback kills spontaneity and improvisation which is the beauty of Irish traditional music and dance. The media reviewing the Danceperados of Ireland reflect positively on the philosophy “keep it live”. Show effects, expensive lights and pyrotechnics and a massive line of dancers take away the focus from what it is all about. It is about music and dance and a meaningful storyline. Once a show is performed live, the fire and passion embedded in the DNA of the dancers and musicians spread like wild fire. Twelve dancers stepping it out live match a cast ten times their size.

The Danceperados are in the fore front of a new movement striving to free the Irish dancing from the grip of the big production companies. It is not about playing safe and finding the smallest common denominator by going for a Las Vegas type of show. The Danceperados are going back to the roots and for an authentic and free spirited Irish feel.

Whiskey you are the devil!
