Weddings, Performances & Corporate Events

The Victorian Irish Dance Academy has performed at festivals and events throughout Australia. Our performances are lively and entertaining and showcase the best of modern and traditional Irish dancing.

We are available to perform at weddings in Melbourne and regional Victoria and can adjust our performance to suit your needs. We can perform numbers from Riverdance and Lord of the Dance, and we can even supply portable floorboards to perform on.


If you are looking for a fun theme for a special celebration or corporate event, we can offer a full Irish Experience. Working in conjunction with 'The Snug' ( and The Kerrys Irish band, we can supply a mobile Irish pub equipped with a commercial bar, chilled taps and bar service and a four-piece traditional Irish band. And for a bit of fun, we can get the crowd up and dancing by leading them through some simple Irish dances or teaching the basic moves of Riverdance.


Book us now for your next event.
