Booking Shows

Lincoln Irish Dancers accepts requests for shows as a means to provide an operating budget for the organization. We perform for weddings, birthday parties and reunions, cultural celebrations, festivals, schools, churches, independent/assisted living facilities, pubs/restaurants, civic groups, workplace, church groups and more.

Lincoln Irish Dancers is an all-volunteer organization. As such and in order to provide a top-notch show, requests for performances should be submitted as soon as you have a date in mind, realizing that a minimum of 2 – 4  weeks is required to complete the process. Contact the Booking Coordinator here for a Show Request form.  Complete the form and submit (email preferred), allowing approximately 3-5 business days for review and approval. Every effort is made to accommodate your request, but time constraints/previous bookings may result in an inability to meet your specific date/time.  Alternate available dates/times will be offered in such cases. NOTE: Requests for a Show of less than 30 minutes will be billed at the “minimum/30 minute” rate.

You will be notified by the Booking Coordinator when the completed request is approved, be introduced to the Show Coordinator who will be handling your show, and will receive an invoice with payment amount and remittance information.  Requests are processed on a first come first served basis.  There must be a minimum lead time of two weeks between the approval date and the requested show date.

Show requests are accepted year round. Requests for shows between May and August and during March (St. Patrick’s season) should be made at least 30 days prior to the requested date. Note that during St. Patrick’s season when the Performance Schedule generally fills, requests are fulfilled on a “first come first served” basis for any date/time request. While there in no minimum performance duration, any request for less than 30 minutes will be billed at the “minimum/30 minute” rate. “Show” time purchased can be divided between a performance by Lincoln Irish Dancers and Audience Participation facilitated by us.
