Riverdance is a theatrical show consisting of traditional Irish step dancing. A group of dancers perform with rapid leg movements while keeping their bodies and arms mostly still.
It was first performed at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994 featuring Jean Butler and Michael Flatley, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and the Celtic choral group Anúna.
Riverdance continues to be performed all over the world, but is currently playing its farewell tour. The show will finish in 2010, 15 years after opening, in Dublin.
