Celtic Throne comes back to Ryman Auditorium, with new dancers, new choreography and new music. Celtic Throne is an Irish dance show from Herbert W. Armstrong College and Armstrong Dance with a majestic score from Golden Globe-nominated composer Brian Byrne (Heartbeat of Home).
Celtic Throne—The Royal Journey of Irish Dance explores the ancient origins of Irish step dance and celebrates the millennia-long journey of a music-and-dance-loving people as they migrate from the ancient Near East to Ireland, Scotland, England and the United States. Infused with innovative choreography, dazzling costumes, spectacular lighting and projection, Celtic Throne is Armstrong College’s largest production to date.
“Celtic Throne combines Byrne’s powerful, cinematic musical score with hard- and soft-shoe Irish dancing, all set against epic imagery of Ireland, the Scottish Highlands, scenes from the British Empire and traditional America. This show is a stonking celebration of the British Isles and the United States. It is guaranteed to leave audiences thrilled and inspired,” said co-director Brad Macdonald. “Bring the entire family for an unforgettable experience!”
Brian Byrne is a multi-award-winning film and television composer, songwriter and producer. Byrne composed music for Heartbeat of Home and has collaborated with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Katy Perry, Bono, Barbara Streisand, Josh Groban, Sinead O’Connor, Kelly Clarkson and Sarah McLachlan, to name a few.
The Armstrong Dance troupe is comprised of over 30 Irish dancers from around the world, including Britain, Australia, Canada and the United States, ranging in age from 23 to just five years old. The troupe is comprised of students from the John Carey Academy, some of whom have competed with great success in top Irish dance competitions, including Worlds, All Irelands, Great Britain and North American Nationals.
