Riverdance, the iconic dance show celebrating Irish history and culture, brings its new 25th anniversary tour to Belk Theater April 7-12, 2020.


Riverdance was inspired by Bill Whelan's previous work, Timedance, a piece composed for the 1981 Eurovision Song Contest. Each scene incorporates different styles of dance and showcases a special aspect of Irish culture and mythology. From its premiere as a seven-minute interval act in the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest to its development into a full-blown show, Riverdance has become a beloved piece of art across the globe.
