Irish dancing is undergoing a major resurgence, between set-dancing, sean-nós dancing and everything in between. In this light-hearted dance competition, eight well known Irish personalities put on their dancing shoes to take the floor in a 6 part series to find out if they are the Ríl Deal!
The Irish proverb tells us that “Dhá dtrian den damhsa an chosúlacht” (‘Two thirds of the secret of dancing is looking like you know what you’re doing”). Our celebrity participants are more used to throwing different shapes and at venues very different to the TV studio dance-floor so we will see how true the old saying is.
Each of the celebrities is paired up with a leading amateur Irish Dancers as he/she prepares for the dance off against another celeb. The line-up includes: Valerie Mulcahy, Linda Bhreathnach, Séamus Begley, Rossa Ó Snodaigh, Micheál Ó Ciaraidh, Linda Ervine, & Ruairí McSorley.
In a light-hearted, dance filled show, the focus is on fun and entertainment, while also serving to highlight the charities of choice of the 7 Celebs. At the end of each show one unlucky dance couple will be eliminated. In an exciting finale, one Celeb will be crowned champion and be declared An Ríl Deal.
