“Rockin' Road to Dublin is that all-important one-two punch of style and mastery… the cast exudes a fabulous mix of charisma and personality. However, the fun vibe is solidly backed by the highly original choreography and technical mastery of every performer onstage; world-class, although this crew is making it all look easy. Scott and Chris have made some magic here." – Irish Dance Magazine
