Celtic Illusion is an explosive, creative Irish Dance and Grand Illusion force which is quickly growing to be one of the biggest dance shows in the world. After a sell out season in NZ in 2016, Celtic Illusion is back bigger & better than ever. 

Celtic Illusion’s hallmark individuality, is the creative and seamless fusion of two spellbinding art forms never before seen together on stage - electrifying contemporary Irish dance and awe inspiring grand Illusion with mind-blowing magical elements, incredible choreography, heart-racing music and a sensory experience like no other, audiences will be kept on the edge of their seats and left wanting more. 

Showcasing a stellar cast of champion and internationally-acclaimed dancers, including performers from Rhythms of Ireland, River dance and Lord of the Dance, Celtic Illusion offers some of the fastest taps in the world as the dancer’s thunderous rhythm fills the stage in perfect unison. The show is led by Anthony Street, whom has performed leading roles in The Rhythms of Ireland and Michael Flatley’s widely-acclaimed Lord of the Dance including the very role that Michael Flatley originally performed himself. 

Celtic Illusion also offers an incredible soundtrack composed by a stellar team, including Angela Little who co-composed Baz Luhrman’s film Australia, as well as Steve Skinner who has arranged and produced for artists such as Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder and the Broadway musical Rent.
