Fusion Fighters stun Irish Dance World Championships
Leading Irish dance group Fusion Fighters put on a stunning display at the World Irish Dance Championship that left the audience in raptures.
Fusion Fighters have long been one of the best Irish dance groups around. They have won fans all across the globe with their imaginative and energetic routines, which often merge traditional Irish dance with modern styles.
They were invited to perform at the World Irish Dance Championships in Dublin last week, and put on a show as entertaining and exciting as we have come to expect from them.
Fusion Fighters are led by former Riverdance star Chris Naish, and he has put together an outstanding group of talented dancers that continue to push the boundaries and thrill audiences.
The performance at the World Championships included dancers from the Fusion Fest workshops, which were set up by Fusion Fighters to help coach and inspire young Irish dance performers.
The dancing was accompanied by music from talented Irish trad band Fullset.
Fusion Fighters will be running more Fusion Fest workshops at the Limerick Institute of Technology between August 7 and August 15.
