Longwood Debut

Led by five-time World Champion Irish dancer David Geaney and 2013 Senior Men’s World Irish Dance Champion Tyler Schwartz—and joined by a motley crew of mind-blowing musicians and an old-school scratch DJ—Velocity is the next generation in Irish tap. Honoring past traditions but blasting them feet-first into the 21st century, Velocity breaks away from the idea of what an Irish dance show is ... to one that is expressive, free, fast-paced, and edgy, driven by passion and pride.

More about Velocity Irish Dance

Two illustrious Irish hoofers come together in an intimate, no-nonsense jam session of impossible scuffles, shuffles, and every time step in between in this high-octane celebration of the past, present, and future of Irish dance.

The principal lead dancer in more than 10 professional touring productions, Tyler Schwartz is the world record holder of multiple Irish dance records, as well as the 2017 Man of the Year for Irish Dancing Magazine.  

David Geaney, from a town called Dingle in the southwest of Ireland, is a 24-year-old dancer who regularly works in his family-owned bar, the Dingle Pub, but his main passion is dance. After being told he was too young for football and watching his older sister Susie win a medal at a local dance competition, Geaney decided he wanted a medal too—and began dancing! After dancing for nearly 20 years, not much has changed, but he does have five World Championship titles to his name and several TV appearances, including the finals of Britain’s Got Talent, under his belt!
