Velocity Irish dance

Velocity is the next generation in Irish tap. Honoring past traditions but blasting them feet first into the 21st century, Velocity breaks away from the idea of what an Irish dance show is to one that is expressive, free, fast-paced and edgy, driven by passion and pride!

Led by Guinness World Record holder for The Fastest Feet in the World, James Devine, and five-time World Champion Irish dancer, David Geaney. Joined on stage by a motley crew of mind-blowing musicians and an old school scratch DJ, it’s nothing like you’ve ever seen before!

Two illustrious Irish hoofers come together in an intimate, no-nonsense jam session of impossible scuffles, shuffles and every time step in between – VELOCITY is a high-octane celebration of the past, present and future of Irish dance!

Described by The New York Times as an “energetic intimate history lesson more than a sequined spectacular”, Velocity is “a multimedia show for all ages, earnestly tracing the evolution of Irish dance while toying with tradition”.

“Geaney & Devine stun NYC audiences with their dancing virtuosity! Perfectly timed humour, brilliantly charismatic! A ‘must see’ for all dance fans!”

The Irish Dancing & Culture Magazine

“A wonderful, fast-paced and utterly joyful display of Irish dancing.”

The Scotsman

“A jam session in which risky demands of speed are met with precision feats of footwork sometimes doubled in side-by-side unison!”

The New Yorker

“The unstoppable duo—and guests AnneMarie Keaney and Gabriella Wood—dance at breakneck speed for 75 minutes in this explosive production showcasing the past, present, and future of Irish Dance. Backed by a live funk-pop-Celtic band and DJ, the show is a rock concert meets jam session meets epic choreographic feet!”
