The Irish Dance community was catapulted from obscurity in 1994 but has ALWAYS harbored unbelievable talent. The goal of the Irish Dance podcast is to highlight that talent, one guest at a time, as a way for our community to celebrate its History, culture, richness and global reach. From the dance masters of yore, to the breakthrough work of recent years, Irish Dance is firmly established as an international art form.

I love this podcast!!
I absolutely love listening to this podcast!! I’m not an Irish dancer, but am learning so much just by listening! And the host has such a soothing voice...I could listen all day!!! If you’re a fan of “Riverdance” and want to know more about that world, make sure to tune in!!!
An excellent podcast for the Irish Dance Community
This is an absolutely wonderful podcast. We loved hearing what Maire had to say about the dresses and the costumes, and bringing this dance form to more people with lower income. We loved with Joe had to say about getting back to the basics, and learning how he became drawn to Pilates!
Informative and interesting
Thank you to host Martin Percival for this gift! We have been missing something like this within our community and I can’t wait to see how this evolves and continues. Will be a weekly listener!
