Cleary and Harding

Suzanne Cleary and Peter Harding are a couple of dancers who've worked in the Riverdance stage shows.  Recently they've begun to perform 'hand-dancing' on You Tube videos.  The example above is one of their more intentionally  'po-faced' versions - in the America's Got Talent video, they actually smile a lot and move around the stage briefly.  I'm not sure what they're doing on AGT, unless they were a guest act.

You can see the Riverdance origins in the kind of constant, unstoppable rhythm that pervades these videos.  It's fun to watch two or three and then they become a bit much.   Try some others another day!

Cleary and Harding have their own website, under their 'trade' name of Up and Over It.  There are a variety of other videos on there, showing off different aspects of their dance style.
