“RIVERDANCE the show"

51R9M0FYW9L. SY445

Hi All -

This is a bit of a change of pace for this week. The dance sequenceis not from a movie, but from the live show, Riverdance which changed the face of Irish dance by incorporating upper body movements into the traditional step dance

Michael Flatley and Jeam Butler are the principles. Fiddles, drums and fleet feet are featured and the speed and precision of the ensemble are extraordinary.

NOTE: In 1998 Michael Flatley’s foot speed was clocked at an incredible 35 taps per second.
