Twelve Young Women Light Up Stage With Acapella Irish Dance

December 29th, 2020

It’s like rolling thunder and crashing waves all in one.

These ladies display a stunning sequence of footwork without music. They create their own beat with those shoes, tapping away with a rhythmic beat that allows them to bounce up and down to the catchy count.

Irish hard shoe dancing is rooted in tradition. It is the trademark of these dances for dancers to be stiff and upright, their arms positioned down to their sides as they move in a vertical motion in quick successive movements.

These twelve ladies take hard shoe dancing to the next level, doing it a cappella style. Those curled hairstyles are the traditional look, the dresses match to catch the eye of judges and onlookers, and stockings are always in order.

No one paid much attention to Irish dancing. It was back in Eurovision 1994 when a group known as Riverdance took to the stage and stunned audiences worldwide. All this while votes were being counted for the actual contestants.

Jean Butler and Michael Flatley exploded on the stage along with other dancers. From then on, everyone took notice of Irish dancing.

Impressive footwork! They alternate, then do a few steps together, then launch into the air with a few kicks here and there. And no one makes a single mistake. Perfectly choreographed!

When you watch this over and over, it becomes almost hypnotic.

It takes incredible discipline and balance to be tap dancing and jumping like these ladies for a minute or two. You’d have to have a pretty strong pair of lungs to even keep up!

Notice how Irish dancers always keep their arms and hands to their sides? It was believed to be this way since dancers of old only had small spaces to perform in. Think small pubs or barns. No one wants to get hit by a random hand!

Another trademark of Irish dance is that they perform on the balls of their feet with toes pointed outwards. Watch these girls closely. Makes you want to stand up and learn, doesn’t it?
