Rhythm of the dance will get your feet tapping at King's Lynn




A spectacular two-hour dance and music celebration of Irish culture – full of flailing feet and fiddles, futuristic dances, eye-catching lighting and costumes and sensational sound effects – comes to Lynn this weekend.

Rhythm of the Dance, created in 1999, hits the Corn Exchange stage on Sunday.

This stunning show is considered one of the top three Irish step dance shows in the world.

With a dazzling 25 costume changes, this music and dance extravaganza – featuring world champion dancers and traditional Irish band and singers – tours the UK this summer as it celebrates its 20th anniversary.

Rhythm of the Dance combines traditional dance and music with state-of-the-art technology to give audiences of all ages a unique experience.

The multi-award-winning show has performed to over 7 million people in more than 50 countries across the globe.
