Dancing Grannies Riverdance on Belfast street
A group of ‘grannies’ wowed onlookers on a Belfast street with an impromptu Riverdance performance.
The fun loving ladies are part of the dance group ‘Dancing Grannies’. They were in Belfast for the Maritime Festival, which is held in the Titanic quarter of the city in the regenerated docklands.
The festival took place over the weekend and the Dancing Grannies made sure they made the most of their visit.
During their stay they found the time to put on a performance of their own and took to the street to show off their Riverdance moves.
The group describe themselves as ‘a gang of Black Country elderly ladies who like to get down and boogie wherever they please’.
They have seen many of their videos go viral and put their own spin on dances such as Footloose, Gangnam Style and many other modern songs.
However, their performance of Riverdance is sure to be up there with their most popular.
Take a look at the video below.
