A Taste of Ireland

A Taste of Ireland

A Taste of Ireland will kick off its national tour at The Palms at Crown Melbourne on St Patrick’s Day, Sunday 17th March 2024.

Having performed over 300 shows since 2019, A Taste of Ireland has merged cultural traditions, modern flair, and craic galore to deliver a performance that has brought the house down night after night. This season, join an acclaimed cast of champion Irish dancers from Riverdance and Lord of the Dance, dazzling musicians, and a contemporary vocalist, as they blend Irish charm with mind-blowing talents to present an unforgettable night of entertainment. Laugh, cry and jig into the night with the show that has entertained thousands as it performs across the country in 2024.

Australian Irish dancing duo Ceili Moore and Brent Pace have made a name for themselves on the world stage of Irish dancing over the last few decades, winning world championships and dancing alongside greats such as Michael Flatley. 

Both coming from Irish dancing families in Australia, their union has seen the creation of live entertainment company, Pace Live Entertainment Group, a unique dance touring company which celebrates Irish dance and culture.

A national tour, commencing in March, will reach more than sixty venues over three months in all Australian states, both in metropolitan and regional centres.

With revamped musical classics such as ‘Danny Boy’ and ‘Tell Me Ma’, the show blends live acapella tap battles, melodic folk music mashups and craic (gossip) through the story of Ireland’s tumultuous history. 

The cast of 14 dancers and musicians includes alumni from the Lord of the Dance, Riverdance & Gaelforce Dance.

Producer/Director Brent Pace has been an Irish dancer for over 30 years and comes from Irish dancing royalty in Melbourne. He is the son of one of Melbourne’s most prominent Irish dance teachers and has trained alongside the very best in London, Australia, Dublin and the United States. His competitive dance career has taken him to achieve such feats as becoming a World Medallist, 6 x Time National Champion and getting top placings at every major Irish dance competition in the world. Brent and his partner Ceili Moore have become an unstoppable force in the global Irish dancing scene creating their own Australian touring company called Pace Live, which brings the magic and celebration of Irish dance and culture all over the country and the world.

Brent Pace says, “A Taste of Ireland has grown into one of the top four most followed Celtic productions in the world. The show provides a wonderful insight into Irish history and culture, involving storytelling, visual design and dramatic effects with each and every number the show.

“I think the most magical part of this year’s performance will be that my 1-year-old daughter will get to see her dad dance. It’s a family affair, and something I thought that would never happen.”
