Travelers passing through Shannon Airport last week were treated to a surprise performance from students with the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance.

As airline crews and tourists went about their way, something very different from the usual calls for passengers to report to the information desk began to emanate from the loudspeakers.

As the music kicked in, dancers emerged from the crowd - some dressed as vacationers and travelers, others as Shannon Airport employees. Those watching all burst into smiles, many capturing the moment with their phones. 

The video has already been viewed close to 40,000 times on YouTube. Check it out below!
