The origins of Irish dance can be traced back to Druidic times, but what we think of as Irish dance had its beginnings in the mid-eighteenth century. Irish dance evolved through the work of Irish Dance Masters who travelled the country teaching dance from village to village. In the last 30 years, Irish dance has achieved world-wide recognition with renowned touring shows like “Riverdance” and “Lord of the Dance”. Today Irish dance organizations and schools can be found in nearly every country and Irish dance competitions are held all over the world.
