World champion Irish dancers Darrah Carr and Niall O’Leary have graced stages across the country and around the world. Since 1998, the Bessie Award-nominated company Darrah Carr Dance has created a sensational and unique blend of traditional Irish step and contemporary modern dance. The company draws from Irish music, step dance footwork and spatial patterns to create high-energy, rhythmically based work that is accessible to a broad audience. Artistic director Darrah Carr calls her style ModERIN: a playful combination of the words modern (dance) and ERIN (an Irish American reference to Ireland).

Recent performance highlights include NBC’s Today show, a guest appearance with the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall, Walt Disney World, and Japan’s Osaka Festival Hall. They are the featured performers in Absolutely Irish, a PBS documentary directed by Academy Award winner Paul Wagner. The New York Times notes, “Darrah Carr is a smiling, exuberant performer with an open upper torso and fast flying feet straight out of Irish step dancing… she has a terrific chemistry with her longtime partner, Niall O’Leary.”
