World champion Irish dancer Celli Moore will be performing alongside six time world champion Brent Pace in “A taste of Irish Christmas” at the Lithgow and District Workmen’s Club.
The story follows two star crossed lovers who fall in love in Ireland and migrate to Australia, combining Irish and Christmas music, and Irish dancing.
The performance will be a portrayal of Ireland’s story told through music and dance on Sunday, December 16.
Celli Moore who is known for performing the lead role opposite Michael Flatley in “Lord of the dance” has performed throughout Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Europe, South Africa and London’s prestigious West End Palladium theatre.
Ms Moore said she had never been to Lithgow before but is excited to travel to the new destination.
“I’ve been in the show for about a year and a half now so I always get excited when I get to go somewhere new,” she said.
Ms Moore and her partner Brent Pace worked together to create the show, with a cast of Irish dance champions from around the world.
“We have so many talented dancers in the cast,” she said.
Ms Moore said she wants Lithgow audiences to enjoy themselves and that she hopes she can bring joy to people in the audience.
“I would love to leave a good impression on people who haven’t seen Irish dancing before, whether that be elderly couples, or young families, we have something for everyone,” she said.
According to Ms Moore the show is high energy and includes celtic accordion, guitar and banjo and ullieann pipes.
“Our musicians are really talented and everything seen on the night is done live,” she said.
Ms Moore said everyone in the cast is passionate about what they do.
“Out of the eight Irish dancing world champions in the past 50 years we have three of them in our show, that will probably never happen again,” she said.
