The Fusion Fighters have been gathering #IrishDanceFails for years, and each one is funnier than the last!
The Irish dance fail compilation videos made by The Fusion Fighters will make you laugh and wince in equal measure. From center stage to rehearsing with your buddies, Irish dancers must dread taking a tumble, especially if someone is recording you!
In 2015, the Fusion Fighters, a talented dance company who has modernized Irish dance with a mix of dance forms, different music styles, and technology, began collecting Irish dance fails from within the Irish dancing community.
Chris Naish, the Creative Director of the Fusion Fighters, says their “Fail Videos” are particularly popular.

Naish told IrishCentral “I guess because the competition world and show world to a certain extent in Irish dance is so serious so these clips give the kids and adults a small coffee break from that and to be able to laugh at themselves and realize it's ok to not always have to take it so seriously.”

Naish also reassured us that they only used the clips with the dancer’s permission so maybe we don’t need to cringe too much at their “epic” fails. He explained that after some concerns raised in their comment sections he came up with a way of engaging their users and the dancers and having them submit their own dance fails.

“I came up with the video feature section last summer and the 200+ videos have since received a combined 6 million video views on our page and helped us gain almost 20K followers so it's definitely working,” Naish said.
