Gaelforce Dance, the celebration of Irish dance and music, comes to Blackburn Empire Theatre

This March, Gaelforce Dance, the dynamic celebration of Irish dance, music and song, comes to Blackburn Empire Theatre.

This dance spectacular has enjoyed tremendous success on a global scales performing in over 30 countries, across four continents and playing to over two million people.

Gaelforce Dance is the story of two lovers, Lorcan and Aisling, who as our tale begins, are blissfully unaware of the passion that will erupt between them, leading the lovers into a maelstrom of forbidden love and their community into a cauldron of hate.

As the story begins, a chance meeting sparks the ill-fated affair where broken loyalties and jealousy tear two brothers apart. Only after the ultimate tragedy are the brothers once more united.

Produced by Michael Durkan, choreographed by Richard Griffin and music composed by Colm O’Foghlu, Gaelforce Dance is a show that expertly weaves intricate choreography, thundering rhythms, enchanting melodies and a compelling storyline into a stirring tale of love, passion and tragedy.

It is due to these incredibly innovative elements that in 2010 Gaelforce Dance was the winner of IQ Magazine’s ‘Limelight Award’ for Best Dance Spectacular, beating all other Irish dance shows in its category.

“Gaelforce Dance, the unmissable two hour spectacular, has brought over 1 million to their feet worldwide as audiences and the media hail Gaelforce Dance as the Ferrari of the Irish dance world.”
Evening Herald, Ireland

“You will not be disappointed as Gaelforce Dance stretches the versatility of Irish dance to its limits; ballet, jazz and contemporary are all represented, while the final mega-mix wouldn’t look out of place in a modern rock musical.”
Irish Independent

“A perfect mix of traditional and contemporary Irish pieces, Gaelforce takes the audience right to the edge of this ancient art form”
London Times
