The Prodigious Effort Behind “Heartbeat of Home”

The dance performance “Heartbeat of Home” is more than just your traditional Irish Dance piece. It is a story of emigration, and more importantly of how we all come together. The dancers blend a multitude of styles into their performance, from Irish dance, to Latin, to Afro-Cuban.




It had a very successful run at the Shanghai Grand Theater, but what exactly goes into putting on such a momentous performance? We went behind the scenes with the dancers and the production team to show you just how much blood, sweat and tears goes into making “Heartbeat of Home” happen.
