There is just something about Irish step dancing that makes you want to get up and dance along too. The following talented Galway girls from the Hession School of Irish Dance accepted a challenge from Ed Sheeran.
Ed Sheeran made the call out in an interview with Eoghan McDermott of 2FM, an Irish radio station. He expressed interest in shooting a video in Ireland and said, “I’ll need céilí dancers,” for his video for ‘Galway Girls.’
Interestingly, Ed Sheeran’s grandparents hailed from Ireland and Sheeran is no stranger to the beautiful country of Ireland. The talented group of real Galway girls get together to step dance to his hit single, “Shape of You” and their performance will leave you breathless.
