Flashmob Irish dancing on the streets of Argentina

The art of Irish dancing is famous all over the world, it is one of the many aspects of Irish culture that really seems to strike a chord with people.

In the age of smartphones and YouTube we really are beginning to realise just how popular it is. Often modern dancers combine Irish dancing with other forms such as street dance.

It is amazing to see how Irish dancing is popular and developing in countries in all corners of the world.

Irish dancing in Argentina flashmob take over Buenos Aires street

On 16 March 2014 (The day before St Patrick’s Day) a group of dancers took to the street in Buenos Aires, Argentina and showed what they could do.

The ‘flash mob’ was part of the city’s St Patrick’s Day celebrations and the dancers attracted a large crowd who clapped along in the background.

The fact that they have a St Patrick’s Day parade on the other side of the world just shows how much Irish culture resonates with people, wherever they are from.

The performers in Argentina put on a great show and when a lone girl started the dance, she drew a big cheer as bystanders realised that something special was about to take place.

They weren’t disappointed as the performance progressed, the girl was joined by several other dancers as the routine went along.
