“One of the most entertaining shows you will ever see.” - THE EVENING HERALD 

"Dance does not often get so good.” - THE GUARDIAN 

Riverdance began its journey as the interval act in the Eurovision Song Contest, produced for television by Moya Doherty. This electrifying and innovative seven-minute dance piece was then developed into a full-length stage show by Producer Moya Doherty, Composer Bill Whelan and Director John McColgan. With its fusion of Irish and International music and dance, the show broke all box office records during its world première run in Dublin and when the show transferred to London and New York the reaction was unprecedented. With almost three decades entertaining global audiences, Riverdance has continued to pack theatres throughout Europe, North America, Oceania, Asia, South Africa and South America.
