Canada’s tour de force The StepCrew will take the audience on an adventure of dance, from the haunting beauty of Ireland to the spirited wilds of North America. The StepCrew is an extravaganza of Celtic music, song, and three styles of percussive dance: traditional Irish Step, Tap, and Ottawa Valley – a form known for fast, high-stepping, exuberant jigs and reels.
Led by Cara Butler (The Chieftains’ leading Irish dancer) and the Pilatzke brothers (Canada’s most exciting Ottawa Valley Step dancers), this outstanding company includes Canadian champion fiddle players, the vocals of Scotland’s award-winning Maeve Mackinnon, and touring members of famed Irish band, The Chieftains.
