Talented Teens Amaze With Irish Dance Set Against Galway Backdrop

Just try to keep your own feet from tapping as these talented teens amaze with an Irish dance set against a stunning Galway backdrop!

Never mind the chill wind whipping about...the dancers’ enthusiastic energy completely warms your heart. It’s a thrill to watch their high-speed footwork keep pace with the lively tempo of Irish folk songs.

Set amongst the charming scenery of Claddagh, near the center of Galway city in Ireland, the girls kick, tap, and stomp in a little fishing village that seems to be stopped in time. Dancing in painted doorways, or on stones along the shore, these talented teens not only showcase their dance dexterity, but also the beauty of Irish history.

The “Galway Girls” is an Irish dance troupe from the Hession School of Irish Dancing in Galway, Ireland. Their heart-stopping talent not only takes them to beautiful places, it even earned them star status in Ed Sheeran’s “Galway Girl” music video!

This Claddagh dance performance was posted by Fusion Fighters, known as a “progressive performance company,” which launched on St. Patrick’s Day 2013 in Trafalgar Square. Fusion Fighters has grown to be one of the most influential dance companies worldwide...with over 150K followers and 500 million+ views.

With innovative style, their dancers stretch the limits of typical Irish dance for a modern, amazing effect. Their message of ‘creativity and inclusion’ invites dancers of any age or level. Fusion Fighters say that many Fusion Dance Fest cast members are now living their dreams in full-time established touring productions.

They’ll be serving up more incredible performances in their annual Fusion Dance Fest. It aims to increase dancers’ versatility and confidence, blending eye-popping imagery with modern choreography. From the looks of this delightful Galway Girls video, it's definitely paying off!

Each one of the girls is confident enough to show off their solo skills...and versatile enough to dance in perfect synchronicity regardless of wind or cold. It’s such a stunning way to bring joy to the world...it just puts a spring in your step and happiness in your heart.

“Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with timbrel and harp.” Psalm 149:3
