studio2stage is a unique experience and the first of its kind in the United States. It is a full scale live show performance experience that gathers together musicians, singers, Irish dancers and other dance styles who want to break into the touring show industry. This is an amazing opportunity for aspiring performers worldwide to be a part of a professional Irish music and dance show production.
All Irish dancers have the opportunity to audition to join the studio2stage crew and our team of professional choreographers including Chris Naish from Riverdance, Lord of the Dance, Sneaky Steppers and Fusion Fighters, Bobby Hodges from Heartbeat of Home, Lord of the Dance and Footstorm and Rachel Byrne from Riverdance and Celebrity Jigs n' Reels to develop their show dancing skills and have first hand experience of what it's like to be a professional dancer on tour!
But that's not all........
There would be no dance show without music! The studio2stage team are privileged to have one of the finest musical directors in the world and the elite selection of Irish dancers will perform to music written and composed by Mr Anthony Davis, who will carefully select young musicians from the audition process to be part of the studio2stage challenge.
Note for CLRG dancers and teachers: As discussed and agreed with An Coimisiún le Rincí Gaelacha, dancers from CLRG schools taking part in studio2stage are NOT associated with each other. Jim Murrihy (ADCRG) will be associated to any of the dancers that pass through the audition process and are performing for the week and the final show and Jim will not be adjudicating any world championships, qualifiers or USA feiseanna in the next 2 years.
