Saint Patrick’s day is an amazing opportunity for the global Irish community to actively demonstrate and highlight the best of Irish culture, including traditional Irish music and Irish dancing.

In this vein, every year Irish dancers from all over the globe treat their local audiences to a spectacle of entertainment in the beauty that this art portrays.

From the United States to Germany, from China to New Zealand, Irish dancing has captivated the minds and hearts of many, and on this day, millions of individuals wear Irish blood and ancestry on their sleeves with pride.

Saint Patricks day celebrations prove Irish music and dance have a significant role in uniting people worldwide

On occasions like this, at Mitchell music we are reminded of our why. The reason why we are doing what we are doing.

We firmly believe in the power of music and dancing to change the world for the better. Because of it, we have made it our mission to support those involved in Irish music and dancing, who bring joy and connection to the lives of others.

Music and dancing inspire, bring joy, and unite human beings.

In times like these, where we are forced to isolate, the importance of music and dancing is more prevalent than it has ever been.

Everybody loves music regardless of age, race or religion and we can all benefit from partaking in music and dancing of some sorts.

Saint Patrick’s day celebrations are a great testimony to this. Dancers all over the world spread the message loud and clear through their unique performances: music and dancing inspire, bring joy, and unite human beings.

As a nation of creatives with a global reach, we should not underestimate the power we have in contributing to constructive change.

However, we believe people should be able to benefit from live music and dance all year round, and not only in certain occasions.

These arts bring a lot of richness to our lives. They nurture our creativity, and they provide us with a sense of connection and belonging.

When we feel we belong, we tend with care to the places and people we belong with, which is highlighted clearly on Saint Patrick’s day.

Given this context, it is clear that Irish culture has great power to bring forward positive transformation. As a nation of creatives with a global reach, we should not underestimate the power we have in contributing to constructive change.

So we trust that spreading and sharing our heritage with the world is a potent way to enhance the power of music and contribute to this global metamorphosis.

Within that broader undertaking, our mission is to help support, encourage and facilitate those involved in spreading music and dancing worldwide.
