Some of Ireland's and the UK's leading professional dancers will come together in August to offer young dance students an amazing opportunity to learn from the best in the business.

The Dizzy Footwork Dance Blitz takes on August 11th in Tallaght.

The event is being run by Dizzy Footwork Dance Academy, helmed by one half of Ireland's headline-grabbing 2018 Eurovision dancers, Alan McGrath and his sister Lisa.

Alan (25) is one of Ireland's most accomplished professional dancers of his age - having taken to the stage in two Eurovisions, Ireland's Got Talent as well as touring the world with Celtic Woman.

He will be joined by Haley Monaghan, who has been performing to packed arenas on the X Factor live tour since 2011 - she's also worked with  Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Nicole Scherzinger and Little Mix among others.

Caoife Coleman - who recently performed in smash movie 'The Greatest Showman' - will also be on hand.

Choreographer Josh Wharmby will take attendees through their paces - his list of credits includes working on ITV's X Factor live shows as well as choreographing on ITV show 'Dance Dance Dance'.
