“True masters of tap dance” (HNA)

Kombine a pinch of Irish joie de vivre with breathtaking tap dancing at the highest level. This is the recipe for success of the DANCE MASTERS, who will captivate you with passion in no time at all. Ireland is notorious for its dance culture, the rhythm is in the blood of the Irish – and that is contagious.

 

One look at their faces and you know what unites this culture. It is a feeling of freedom, a kind of euphoria that expresses: let’s preserve our art, let’s enjoy the moment, because happiness can only be found here. And they are the best at it.

Of course, there is no cheating involved. Through their life-affirming attitude, they love and live their art and inspire in a fascinating way. This only works with live sung and played music. The Irish band skillfully accompanies the love story of Patrick and Kate with guitar rhythms, fiddle sounds with traditional pipes and original Irish vocals. They are authentic, you have to give them that. Irish tap dancers perform in original costumes to unique Irish melodies. Nimble step sequences, melodic clicking dances and traditional Irish folk music will enchant you on a time travel through Ireland of the last 200 years.

Irish tap dance at the highest level

Behind the DANCE MASTERS is impressive entertainment and an infectious dynamic. However, its history is no less significant. “Dance Masters,” also called itinerant dance instructors, first appeared in 1750 to teach the Irish how to dance. While each Dance Master made a district their own, they would occasionally meet in large marketplaces.

 

There they exchanged their dance skills by competing against each other in competitions. The decisive factor was the number of steps they delivered on the floor. The DANCE MASTERS combine these precisely executed “clicks” in sophisticated choreographies. Through their energetic performance, they are so happy to prove their skills again and again.

In every show the DANCE MASTERS set the highest standards for themselves and score with the highest quality through accurate steps. So they make sure that they exceed your expectations the Irish joie de vivre spills over to you. As entertaining as in an Irish pub and as impressive as the cultural diversity of Ireland. Tap dance, song and music all in one – and then also from one of the most beautiful countries in the world. There is no more fitting event for modern entertainment with traditional elements.

 

For you, the DANCE MASTERS will transform the stage into old Ireland and prepare a magical event that you will not soon forget. Look forward to masterful dance perfection in an intoxicating atmosphere of the Irish way of life.
