I'd say if you approached any irish dance school they'd be able to put together a performance to the music of your choice. The only thing to bear in mind when using modern music is that the overwhelming majority of modern music pieces are in 4/4 time which limits the dancers to reel type dances. Depending on how long you want them to dance for, dancing in reel time can be very fast and can be exhausting so you might not be able to have several big group numbers one after the other if you know what I mean. I'm an Irish dancer myself and the girls I dance with in my class are going to dance at my wedding and I'm going to have them do at least one piece to a modern piece of music.
