Riverdancing Gloves come in two versions. Male dancer and female dancer. They are intended to be worn by children, though an adult size could be produced.
They differ from ordinary gloves in respect of the design of the first two fingers. These have been re-modelled as two shapely dancer's legs,
that terminate in miniature dancing shoes. Little skirts, or trouser detail for the boys, completes the arrangement.
This means that a set of friends can now choreograph a table top version of the famous Riverdance, using their appropriately clad fingers.
Rude Can-Can Gloves under consideration for adult market.
Not entirely relevant maybe but...
...these two would be all over it. [2 fries shy of a happy meal, Jan 16 2014]

||I don't think one's fingers can move in the same way
as legs. It could be a cute idea, but somehow I
always thought River Dancers bent the knees
sideways and also they make loud tapping noises
with their shoes. There would have to be lead
weights attached to make such noises from fingers.
||The 'snap' of tap cleats could be simulated by using an
emery cloth dance surface and fingertip-mounted flints,
possibly enhanced by embedded fulminate of something-or-
other. It could add a nifty sparking effect as well.
||This makes me think of the Cheetos advertisement
currently running in the US featuring a Bruce Lee style
finger-duel. If the--I don't know, call them hand actors?--if
the hand actors in that ad can do a high-flying kung fu
duel, I'll buy Irish stepdancing as a possibility.
||Makes me think of a recent internet meme. [link]
