“There's no doubting the pair's excellence as technicians and charm as performers.”
The New York Times

VELOCITY IRISH DANCE is the next generation in Irish tap. Honoring past traditions but blasting them feet first into the 21st century, VELOCITY IRISH DANCE breaks away from the idea of what an Irish dance show is to one that is expressive, free, fast-paced and edgy, driven by passion and pride.

Led by Guinness World Record holder for The Fastest Feet in the World, James Devine, and five-time World Champion Irish dancer, David Geaney and joined on stage by a motley crew of mind-blowing musicians and an old school scratch DJ, it’s nothing like you’ve ever seen before!

Two illustrious Irish hoofers come together in an intimate, no-nonsense jam session of impossible scuffles, shuffles and every time step in between – VELOCITY IRISH DANCE is a high-octane celebration of the past, present and future of Irish dance!

Described by The New York Times as an “energetic intimate history lesson more than a sequined spectacular,” VELOCITY IRISH DANCE is “a multimedia show for all ages, earnestly tracing the evolution of Irish dance while toying with tradition.”

“[Geaney] and Devine formed Velocity and devised the show together...The result is a wonderful, fast-paced and utterly joyful display of Irish Dancing. Backed by guitar, percussion, sax, fiddle and DJ, the movement never misses a beat, while a video on the backscreen gives audiences a fascinating potted history of dance in Ireland.”
