Our 5 Favorite Irish Dance Flash Mobs

Nina is an adult Irish dancer based in Belgrade, Serbia. For more, connect with her on twitter @GingerLujka.

Did you know that flash mobs are a fairly new thing? I was surprised to learn that the first ever flash mob happened in 2003 and it was nothing other than a social experiment designed by a witty American Bill Wasik.

Nowadays flash mobs are a very common thing and extremely popular especially among dancers. They are very amusing, fun to do and will make a great story to tell your grandchildren someday.

Irish dance flash mobs even more so. Whether you choose to do a traditional set dance, a ceilí or one of your school’s choreographies, people are guaranteed to notice, because, well, Irish dance is not easily ignored.

I chose 5 of my favorite Irish dance flash mobs to share with you. If you are in any one of them – let us know!

1. Take the Floor 2013 at the Dublin Airport


2. St. Patrick’s Day 2013 by Shamrock Dance Company at a train station in Vienna, Austria

4. St.Patrick’s Day 2011 by Sneaky Steppers at Central Station, Sydney, Australia
