Welcome to The Irish Dance Podcast
The Irish Dance community was catapulted from obscurity in 1994 but has ALWAYS harbored unbelievable talent. The goal of The Irish Dance Podcast is to highlight that talent, one guest at a time, as a way for our community to celebrate its History, culture, richness and global reach.
The Irish Dance Podcast is hosted by Martin Percival, former dancer with Riverdance, Dancing on Dangerous Ground, and principal dancer with Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance. This project is an excellent way for Martin to connect with members of the Irish Dance community, celebrate the many talented people involved, and share his passion for the art form that he has dedicated his life to.
From the dance masters of yore, to the breakthrough work of recent years, Irish Dance is firmly established as an international art form. Let's talk with members of the community and discuss it's evolution.
