[Video] Carson Daly: ‘We No Speak Americano’ Meets Riverdance

riverdance [Video] Carson Daly: We No Speak Americano Meets Riverdance

The people pictured above may look a little bored, but just you wait! These former Riverdance performers choreographed an impressive dance to one of AMP Radio’s most-requested songs!

Peter Harding and Suzanne Cleary used to tour with Riverdance and Magic of the Dance, but they decided to break away from the traditional troupes to develop their own brand that goes beyond the “velvet skirts and big wigs.”

The two created Up and Over It, a solo venture devoted to hand dancing.  It came naturually to Hardy and Cleary, since many Irish dancers learn their choreography with their hands by beating on their lap or chest. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy.  Harding told the The Wall Street Journal:

Your hands get really sore. Actually to create beats like that on a wooden table, it gets really, really sore. I mean, sometimes you get splinters and swollen knuckles.

The end result is worth it though…check it out!
