Slide Step wow fans with great Irish dance video
An Irish dance troupe have recorded a great video which showcases their talents – fusing Irish dancing with modern street dance.
The group – called Slide Step – is a made up of a mixture of male and female professional dancers.
They have performed all over the world and always keep audiences on the edge of their seats with their innovative choreography and energetic Irish dance shows.
The group are always looking for new ways to surprise their audience and push genre boundaries and this video sees them mixing a number of dancing styles such as hip-hop, tap, and Irish step dance.
The performance takes place in what appears to be an abandoned car park. The seemingly mundane setting helps to create a strong contrast with the remarkable talent.
While the dancing is a mixture of new and traditional, the music they perform to is a little more modern. The performance starts with the group dancing to Kanye West’s Black Skinhead before moving into a dance track and then ending with Chris Brown’s Five More Hours.
