The StepCrew is a sensational new, Celtic inspired evening with six of the most charismatic dancers performing t
oday. Led by the Pilatske Brothers (Jon & Nathan) from Ontario, The StepCrew is the first of its kind to combine three unique styles of dance: Irish Step, traditional tap dancing, and the extraordinary Ottawa Valley Step dancing. The group takes Celtic dance to the next level as the production demonstrates, with flair and humor, the similarities between these various forms, and introduces the loose-limbed and hilariously virtuosic Ottawa Valley style. The Pilatske Brothers and Cara Butler are long known by fans of The Chieftains, having toured with them for over a decade. The five piece Celtic band is red hot and accompanied by the haunting and exquisite vocals of Alyth McCormack from the remote Scottish Hebrides. This is a Celtic show unlike any other.
