Direct from Dublin, Ireland come the Dublin Irish Dance in Stepping Out. Produced and directed by Eric Cunningham, Dublin Irish Dance’s Stepping Out brings the story of the Irish people to life in this multi-generational exploration of the Irish people’s immigration to America. From the life of rural Ireland to the Civil War and the mountains of Appalachia, Dublin Irish Dance recreates the sights and sounds of the Irish experience through music and dance.

With original choreography by Siobhan Manson, Dublin Irish Dance’s Stepping Out stars world-champion Irish step dancers whose previous work includes performing with some of the top step dancing troupes in the world, including Riverdance, Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance, and Celtic Woman. The story begins in the kitchens, barns, and fields of the land of Eire and continues into the times of famine, when Irishmen and women looked to the New World for a brighter future. The show seamlessly integrates contemporary American song and dance, highlighting the ways in which Irish traditions blended with existing cultures to form a unique tradition of its own. The journey continues into the present moment and showcases the pioneering, young step dancers who continue to set the standard for excellence in traditional Irish step dance. Don’t miss this unique celebration of Irish music and dance as it makes its way through the cities and countryside of America in Dublin Irish Dance’s Stepping Out.
