Creative Director and Lead Dancer, Raymond Sweeney told IrishCentral, “We have been looking forward to our American trip for some time now and can't wait to get on stage to show the people of America our amazing production.  I am very excited to see their reaction.

“China was a great experience for all involved with 'Titanicdance' and was a great honor to be invited to represent Ireland in such a huge festival. The fact that it was broadcast to 1.3 billion people was staggering. To dance on the historic Great Wall of China was a fantastic conclusion to our visit”
