Born to Riverdance

A look at what it takes to be in one of the most popular dance productions in the world.

As Riverdance prepared to celebrate its 25th anniversary with a special gala performance at The Point Theater in Dublin in 2020, an international company of Irish dancers are locked in intense rehearsals. Many in the cast weren't even born when Michael Flatley and Jean Butler first performed during the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest — changing the world’s view of Irish dancing forever.

    Born to Riverdance is presented by your local public television station.
