Irish dance is a group of traditional dance forms originating from Ireland , encompassing dancing both solo and in groups, and dancing for social , competitive , and performance purposes. Irish dance in its current form developed from various influences such as Native Irish dance, French quadrilles and English country dancing. Dance was taught by "travelling dance masters" across Ireland in the 17thth century, and separate dance forms developed according to regional practice and differing purposes. Irish dance became a significant part of Irish culture , particularly for Irish nationalist movements. From the early 20th century, a number of organisations promoted and codified the various forms of dance, creating competitive structures and standardised styles. Solo Irish dance includes the most well-known form of Irish dance, Irish stepdance , which was popularised from onwards by dance shows such as Riverdance. This production advertised both Irish music and dancing and which is practised competitively across not only the Irish diaspora but to many more people who have disparate cultural backgrounds.
