YOU have heard of Riverdance and Michael Flatley, but have you heard of the next Irish dance spectacular to hit Australian shores?

Rhythms of Ireland is back in Australia, and better still, will be making its way to Grafton and Yamba.

Dance director Michael Donnellan-Ennis said that he was excited about the upcoming string of shows.

“We will be playing a total of 118 dates in Australia which is really great for the five Aussie dancers we have in the show. It gives them some time at home,” Michael said.

“This show is bigger and better than ever, audiences can definitely expect to be entertained. We have seven completely new pieces to offer audiences and while the show is fundamentally Irish, there will be undertones of salsa and a few surprises.”

Michael is also very proud to be working with such an accomplished crew.

“All of the dancers in the show are national or world champion Irish dancers. They are phenomenal and we make a great team,” Michael said.

“I am so proud and excited to bring such a brilliant show to the people of Australia.

“It is a huge thrill to perform to an audience that may have never seen anything like us before, and then to leave the venue buzzing with excitement.”

The Rhythms of Ireland will be making it way around Australia and stopping off at the Yamba Bowling Club on Saturday, May 30 and the Grafton Community Centre on Tuesday, June 2.

The Daily Examiner has one double pass for each show to give away.
