Riverdance returns to the INEC this autumn.

RIVERDANCE returns to the INEC Killarney for a limited run this September 12th – 16th.

For over two decades, nothing has carried the energy, the sensuality and the spectacle of Riverdance, the international Irish Dancing phenomenon.

First performed as the interval act of 1994 Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin, this electrifying and innovative dance piece was developed into a full-length stage show by Producer Moya Doherty, Composer Bill Whelan and Director John McColgan.

With its fusion of Irish and International music and dance, Riverdance broke all box office records during its world premières in Dublin, London and New York and continued to set new records in packed theatres and arenas throughout the world.

Featuring the combined talent of the Riverdance Lead Dancers, the Riverdance Irish Dance Troupe, the live Riverdance Band and international artists from Russia, Spain and the USA the show truly entertains audiences of all ages and cultures.
