Oireachtas Rince Na Cruinne showcases the best Irish Dancing on the planet! Dancers will travel from all over the world with their families and teachers to compete for the top positions at the most prestigious competition of the year. We expect attendance at the event to exceed 25,000 people, most of whom will be resident in Greensboro North Carolina for over a week, attending the 8 days of the event. Your participation in the event guarantees great exposure and connection with the Irish Dance and Irish Arts community. Your company or organization will be showcased within the broader Dance Community, locally in the City of Greensboro, and advertised internationally to our broad audience of followers on social media outlets and on our official website.
