ProdiJIG's Irish dance performance to Vivaldi's "Winter" wentviral, racking up millions of views on social media.

"A bit of Vivaldi to brighten your day," ProdiJIG said on Facebook when the Irish dance group shared their enthralling video back in 2022.

The video has since drawn in more than 2.6 million views.

"Also..the tiles are fine so dont be worrying," ProdiJIG noted humorously, acknowledging their rapid Irish dance moves filmed at Swords Castle.

While the original choreography was by ProdiJIG, the group noted that the piece was from the film "Dear Fingal," which was created and directed by David Gilna, and shot and edited by Louis Maxwell. Funding was provided by Creative Ireland with support from Fingal County Council.

That wasn't Prodijig's first time taking on Vivaldi, however. The impressive Irish dance troupe  performed a longer choreography to the classical composer back in 2015 at Cork Opera House with an assist from the RTÉ Concert Orchestra:

ProdiJIG, created by Alan Kenefick, aims to redefine traditional Irish dance with a contemporary performance style, and their viral "Vivaldi" choreography is proof.

Kenefick, a World Irish Dancing Champion from Co Cork, founded the dance troupe after leaving his lead dancer role in Riverdance, according to the Irish Examiner.

The group, which won the British talent show "Got to Dance" in 2012, debuted their touring show "Footstorm" in 2013.

"ProdiJIG: The Revolution," which "celebrates the spirit of creativity and freedom through themes of riot and revolution," opened at Cork Opera House in 2016.
