Music & Dance

For over 20 years, nothing has carried the energy, the sensuality and the spectacle of Riverdance. The worldwide phenomenon which is Riverdance began its journey as the interval act in the 1994 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 has continued to set new records in packed theatres and arenas throughout the world.
Since 1995 Riverdance has:

  • Played 11,500 performances and been seen live by over 25 million people in over 467 venues worldwide in 47 countries across 6 continents
  • Travelled 750,000 miles (or to the moon and back and back again!)
  • Played to a global television audience of 3 billion people
    Sold over 3 million copies of the Grammy Award-winning CD and 10 million Riverdance videos & DVD
