Seven of the world’s best  modern Irish dancers have combined forces to push the  boundaries of Irish Dance.

Dance troupe Prodijig, led by Alan Kenefick, often referred to  as the Michael Flatley of his generation, are performing their  breath-taking debut show Footstorm, which heads to  Cardiff this month.

Prodijig fuse Irish dancing with more modern moves.

The innovative troupe won Sky One’s popular show Got To  Dance in 2012.

Watched by more than two million viewers, the seven-strong  group, won huge praise from the  judges, including ex-Pussycat  Dolls singer Kimberly Wyatt  claiming they were “on another  level” and Diversity leader  Ashley Banjo, who described the  performances as “disgustingly  good”.

Their performance on Sky One  provided the stepping stone to  wider recognition, including an invitation to go to the US and  perform on the Ellen show.

The seven dancers came  together to “break boundaries”  and “move away from tradition”.  Each dancer is a leading  competitor in their own right,  and between the group they  have won every Irish dancing  competition,  including North  American, Great British, All  Ireland and World  championships.

They have also performed for  major dignitaries, including The  Queen, and the presidents of  Ireland and Kazakhstan, and worked with chart-toppers like Mariah Carey and Westlife.

Choreographer Alan Kenefick  said: “We’re so excited to be  going on the road. We have  worked so hard to create a mind-blowing show. We know to succeed we need to keep  evolving and pushing our performance as far as we can.”

Prodijig is at St David’s Hall,  Cardiff on May 12. For tickets,  call 029 2087 8444 or visit  www.stdavidshallcardiff.co.uk
