Irish Dance Group Celtic Throne Comes To Tulsa

An Irish dance troupe is performing in Tulsa this week.

Celtic Throne tours the country and the final stop is the Tulsa Performing Arts Center.

The 32 dancers range in age from five to 22, and the Edmond-based group brings their talents to the Tulsa stage.

The family-friendly show takes you through the origins of Irish dance from the Middle East like Scotland and England to America.

Many dancers are students or graduates of Herbert W. Armstrong College in Edmond.

Lead dancer Jude Flurry said the production included special effects such as lighting and fog, as well as multiple musical elements.

“We also have a lot of variety. So we have people doing two or three things, playing the violin and singing and dancing. I play the piano and I dance,” Flurry said.

The music was composed by Golden Globe-nominated composer Brian Byrne.

Flurry said that summer included stops in Denver, Amarillo and Nashville.

He said this is her third and biggest tour to date.

“I just love the rhythm. To be honest, that’s what kept me going. There are many different elements in Irish dance,” said Flurry.

Flurry said the dancers’ parents help behind the scenes with the show.

The dancers want people of all ages to enjoy the show together.

“And I think that’s really what sets us apart from other shows. We’re all about family and having fun as a family, and we’re just showing off our talents, skills and having fun,” Flurry said.

Celtic Throne performs on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
