Sneaky Steppers accept 'The Ellen Show' dance dare - VIDEOS

The creative minds behind last year's viral St. Patrick's Day flashmob video hope "The Ellen Show" host Ellen Degeneres will take notice of their most recent stealth Irish dance clip on YouTube.

The elite Irish dancers of the Sneaky Steppers have accepted Degeneres' "dance dare," and they hope their video will make it on the show's segment dedicated to dance-bombing unsuspecting people.

"It's pretty much Sneaky Stepping," Sneaky Steppers co-founder Chris Naish said. "So coincidental, but we thought, 'we have to make a video.'"

The three guys clad in skin-tight Irish-themed body suits are Naish, Sneaky Steppers co-founder Jason Oremus and two-time world Irish dance champion Garrett Coleman. The Sneaky Steppers is a street-level initiative that is a branch of Hammerstep, the Irish dance-infusion show and social experiment.

And it's not just the Sneaky Steppers vying for Degeneres' attention this St. Patrick's Day. There are quite a few "dance dare" videos posted to YouTube that showcase legitimate Irish dancers -- as opposed to the multitude of videos featuring wannabe jiggers. Here's a few of my personal favorites:

Earlier today, IrishCentral staff writer Anotoinette Kelly reported that crew members from "The Ellen Show" will travel to Dublin to record footage for a special St. Patrick's Day segment for next week's show.
