Dublin Irish Dance will be performing “Stepping Out,” the story of Irish immigrants journeying from pre-famine Ireland through the Great Hunger across the Atlantic Ocean to all the way to the New World and Ellis Island. Choreographed by Anthony Fallon, “Stepping Out” embraces Irish culture while redefining Irish Dance.
