This incredibly talented Irish dancer’s video, shot at Bunratty Castle and Folk Park in celebration of Ireland’s Fleadh Ceoil, has gone viral.
Kevin Prendergast (22), who dances with the innovative Irish dance troupe Fusion Fighters, uploaded this improvisational performance shot at his place of work, Bunratty Castle in County Clare. Prendergast told IrishCentral, “It's a traditional dance step to an Irish reel and aims to reflect a raw, rhythmical style of Irish dance accompanied by tin whistle and guitar and performed on a plane wooden board.”
Just your regular day at the office for Prendergast!
Last month TG4, Ireland’s Irish language TV channel, posted the video (below) of a performance by Fusion Fighter members on the streets of Ennis, County Clare, during the Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann festival. So far their video has close to two million views.
Fusion Fighters pride themselves on being a “performance crew that combine(s) a fusion of dance forms with a limitless approach to collaboration with music, technology and martial arts.”
Even if you know nothing about Irish dance it’s plain to see that these dancers are something special.
