  Backbeat  Irish Dancers are high-level competitors and experienced performers. We offer a professional show that celebrates traditional Irish dance (made famous by shows like Riverdance & Lord of the Dance), with a modern twist. Backbeat  is available for corporate and private functions and offers ticketed performances in the southern Alberta area.

Backbeat  Irish Dancers are students at the Possak Hampshire Academy who all hail from Okotoks, Calgary, Lethbridge, and the southern Alberta area. The current cast includes internationally-ranked dancers and dancers that have placed in the top three in Western Canada and the top ten in North America.
