In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s Strictly Come Dancing time again, with celebs donning their dance shoes to try and impress the judges. So, why not impress your guests at your next corporate event, conference, exhibition or gala dinner with an exceptional dance troupe from Africa, India, or Ireland. 

African dance acts

African dance is an infectiously energetic cultural explosion, with irresistible rhythms and joyful music. Our African dancers and musicians love to entertain, and are always fantastic to watch, with some offering workshops and audience participation so you can join in the fun too.

The Imbube UK dancers and drummers are exclusive to Matters Musical, and they really are exceptional! Their enthusiastic performances demonstrate the rhythms, colour and energy of South Africa, including their superb choir and energetic dancers. The group offer workshops for companies to promote teamwork and listening skills through story telling, dance, drumming, gospel singing and even gum boot dancing.

Founded by members of the legendary Ipi Tombi stage show, the Majuba Zulu Drummers & Dancers perform traditional South African and Zulu dances. With drum accompaniments, their signers weave the magical sounds of the Transvaal into any event, featuring Zulu chants and songs. 

For the complete African experience, the Pan-African Entertainers perform stunning shows for any event featuring African dance and drumming, Kora playing, acrobatics, fire eating performances and African live bands. This versatile group offer big or small options with different numbers of performers according to the type of event and your requirements.

Indian dance acts

From Bollywood to BBC i-dents, Indian dancers are some of the most popular dance acts we have on our books. Combining elegance and energy with colourful costume and precision choreography, our acts are sure to delight your guests.

The musical ‘Bombay Dreams’ sparked an interest in live Bollywood dance acts taking the romance and energy from the screen onto stage and dance floors across the country. The Bollywood Dreams Dancers were formed by dancers from the West End show, who just love to entertain at private parties and corporate events alike. Bold and brash, these spectacular routines leave audiences gasping for more!

The Punjab Dancers have delighted audiences with their colourful, energetic and musically vibrant Bhangra dance shows. Consisting of traditional dancers, drummers, vocalists and percussionists the grpup offer something for every occasion including drum (Dhol) solos, traditional Punjabi Folk songs (Boliyan), ladies Punjabi dances (Giddah), and popular Indian (Hindi) film songs.

Crishna and Camilita seek to intrigue your guests with classical Indian dance styles including Kathak, plus Bollywood and Bhangra styles on request. Performing to backing track or with lvei drummers, the two ladies bring elegance and enjoyment to any event, large or small.

Irish dance acts

Who would have guessed that a fill-in act during a Eurovision Song Contest show would spark such a revolution in Irish dance? “The legendary “Riverdance” style lives on with Irish dancers as popular as ever for any event that requires energy, spectacle and an example of absolute precision. 

Matters Musical offers a whole range of Irish dance troupes including:

The Beckett Irish Dancers, combining traditional routines with a modern feel

Celtic Feet, one of the finest Irish dance troupes available in the UK and Ireland, many of whose dancers are championship medal winners.

Celtic Footwork is led by Simona Mauriello, winner of over 200 championships and 17 major titles, and all of Celtic Footwork’s dancers are top 10 in the World Championships. Celtic Footwork can adapt their performances to suit your event and can even offer audience participation – if you can keep up!
