The New York Irish Dance Company is made up of competitive and retired-from-the-competitive-circuit Irish dancers. Many of the Irish dancers in the company are ranked or have been ranked as top ten in their age group in the Irish dance world. Started in Tarrytown, New York through the Lynn Academy of Irish Dance, The New York Irish Dance Company is now a performance group of its own.
The group is open to Irish dancers from other Irish dance schools and to professional Irish dancers. There is a Junior performance group and a Senior performance group, and the The New York Irish Dance Company is available for bookings at events of all kinds.
This amazingly talented group of Irish dancers was spotted last night on NBC's America's Got Talented!! The New York Irish Dance Company received a "yes" vote from judge Howie Mandel and now fans have an opportunity to vote for them to continue on here. Please click on the link and vote!
The Irish dancers and their families were not even aware of when their audition clip would run on TV until the day before it ran. The kids and their families involved were sworn to secrecy so that any news of how they did on the show would not leak out before it ran on national television.
Open Champion Irish dancer Lockie Nidds, who I recently interviewed for Feis America, was a part of the group that auditioned on "America's Got Talent".
