    A Brief History of Irish Dance

    A Brief History of Irish Dance

    There are two seminal events that must be addressed in any history of Irish dance. One is the very first céilí in 1897 – while the other event took place almost a hundred years later. Riverdance in 1994 was an extraordinary performance that transformed Irish dancing into a truly worldwide phenomenon.
