Ballet dancers celebrate the beauty of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way

A team of dancers from Ireland have created a fantastic video to showcase their talents and the incredible natural beauty along the Wild Atlantic Way.

The dancers are all part of the Joan Denise Moriarty School of Dance from Cork.

The school clearly has its students well trained and enthusiastic about dance as the video is packed with energy, smiles and technique.

There are 56 dancers aged between six and 24 who performed in the video.

The team created the video to celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg, 12th June, which is a national day of free creative activities for children in Ireland.

The dancers chose to shoot their video at various sites along the Wild Atlantic Way, which runs all the way down the west coast of Ireland.

There were 15 sites selected for the video including iconic places such as the Cliffs of Moher and Bray Head. The dancers and their families showed wonderful commitment to travel to their own dedicated location for the shoot.

What is different about this dance video is that the style of dance isn’t Irish dance but ballet.

The youngsters show wonderful poise, balance and athleticism throughout the video and can all be very proud of their team effort.

They chose to shoot the scenes along the Wild Atlantic Way to showcase the incredible landscapes and nature of Ireland.

The Wild Atlantic Way unofficially runs from Co Donegal at the north tip of Ireland, all the way down the west coast to Cork.

It has been a popular route for visitors to the island as it takes in wonderful cities of culture like Galway as well as all the beautiful views along the coastline.

The dancers performed with great spirit and some were even lucky enough to be bathed in sunshine for their routines.

The group chose to use the famous Song for Ireland as the soundtrack to the video and is certainly works well with the graceful performances.

They released the video along with the comment: “We hope you enjoy our video of Ireland and all its beauty.”
