BLOW AWAY THE JANUARY BLUES WITH IRISH DANCE SPECTACULAR

Irish dance phenomenon Gaelforce Dance is heading into a “bigger and brighter” year as it prepares to storm into The Customs House this month.

The celebration of Irish dance, music and song has tapped its way into the beating heart of millions of audience members worldwide since its inception in 1999.

The dance spectacle has been seen by more than two million people in 30 countries and is set to enchant UK audiences once again in 2019.

The highly-acclaimed and award-winning production arrives at The Customs House in South Shields on Thursday, January 31, at 7.30pm.

Choreographer Richard Giffin said: “We aim to be different from other shows; we are more theatrical. We operate by a very sharp edge which it is very challenging for our dancers, but the experience of our show is irreplaceable and much more emotional and immediate.

“Gaelforce Dance takes the audience right to the edge with its perfect mix of traditional and contemporary Irish dance music. It fuses a classic love tale in a spectacle of star studded quality that is Irish dancing at its raw and energetic best.”

Gaelforce Dance is the story of two lovers, Lorcan and Aisling, whose chance meeting sparks an ill-fated affair, where broken loyalties and jealousy tear two brothers apart.

Only after the ultimate tragedy are the brothers once more united.

Produced by Michael Durkan, the show expertly weaves intricate choreography, thundering rhythms, enchanting melodies and a compelling storyline into a stirring tale of love, passion and tragedy.

Giffin added: “2019 will be an exciting new year for Gaelforce Dance, with exhilarating new choreography and the inclusion of new dance numbers. This year Gaelforce Dance is going to be bigger and brighter, with glittering new production, exciting new costumes and electrifying music and songs.”

Ray Spencer, Executive Director of The Customs House, said: “We’re so thrilled to have Gaelforce Dance as part of our spring season.”

Tickets for Gaelforce Dance, priced £25, are available from The Customs House box office on (0191) 454 1234 or online at www.customshouse.co.uk.
