World-class Irish dancers take the stage with brilliant flashes of speed and exuberance. The jigs and reels they perform with precision are a joy and the innovative choreography is original to this show, presenting an exciting style of Irish dance that perfectly complements the live band.
The music of Celtic Fire is traditional at its core, featuring Ireland’s national instruments,such as the fiddle, the great drum; the bodhran and the uileann pipes.
