Westport’s first interactive Irish Dance Show ATLANTIC RHYTHM – THE SHOW

Atlantic Rhythm – The Show will launch at Hotel Westport on Tuesday June 30th 2015 and run every Tuesday night during the summer season. The Show is a new production combining the Theatrical Side of a full show with a wonderful Unique Interactive Experience.

‘I am enjoying working on the new modern choreography for the show. The combination of music, song and dance will create an electric atmosphere for an audience of all ages to enjoy”, says Clare O’Kane – Lead Dancer.

There will be a wealth of Mayo talent on stage. Music is by The Full House Ceili Band who hail from Bonniconlon, Co. Mayo comprising of siblings Stephen, Sandra and Aisling Dempsey. They were invited to perform in Arás an Uachtaráin by both former Presidents, Mary Robinson and Mary McAleese and have performed on National and International Radio and TV after their tour of North America. Double-Take duo Tara Cawley and Barry Molloy are an acoustic band based in Ballina and are currently cast in the hit musical "Beyond the Barricade" which was a sell out show around Mayo and soon be in Manchester. Their music genre ranges from Irish, Ballad, Current and Rock.

World Championship Dancers, Claire & Eilish O’Kane, from Ireland‘s Titanic village of Lahardane, are very well known within the Irish Dance circle. Both sisters have numerous titles and championships to their credit while also performing on the show The Emigrants’ Farewell since 2011. The audience is in for a real treat when they meet the cast youngest members Cian Lavelle and Michaela Mullaney. Mayo’s very own Michael Flatley and Jean Butler!
