Countdown to Ireland-The Show Red Carpet Premiere!

*** begin quote ***

IRELAND-The Show premieres Sunday, July 17th at the Granada Theater in Santa Barbara, California and FEIS AMERICA on IRISH CENTRAL will have exclusive coverage of the Red Carpet and Show!

Owen Barrington: The thing that makes Ireland-The Show special from most other shows is that we perform 100% completely live. Most big professional Irish dance shows today use a “click track” in which the taps are pre-recorded and the dancers dance on top of that. Dancing every night, completely live, without the assistance of pre-recorded taps, raises the level of difficulty because you must be spot-on every single show, there’s no other way around it. The benefits of dancing live though are a more genuine show and it gives us the freedom to change steps around at a moment’s notice if we feel it’s necessary.

Irish dance shows are faked milley vanilley syle?

I am shocked. and not the Captain Renault style either.

I’ll never look at another performance the same way again.

Now I know how my Mom felt when she found out that pro-wrestling was fixed.

I feel dirty.
