The group are famous for their originally choreographed ‘The Hurling Boys’, which is one of the dances most appreciated by our audiences, and pays tribute to our national game of Hurling.
Audience participation is very popular throughout an Attridge Group performances, although not compulsory. While some people may prefer to sit and watch, the dancers create such a wonderful atmosphere that the majority of the audience are most anxious to “Take the floor”.
