review by Ed Vincent


We have seen all of the Riverdance productions and this is by far the best and most diverse in terms of talent and styles.  The choreography is beyond the traditional Irish style, the one perhaps known most for the arms remaining almost stationary during the dance.  Here they have styled in their dance moves with more arm motions and enhancements to the dance for all of the Irish presentations and the mix of styles from around the world highlight the event.

There is phenomenal music, songs, drama, acrobatics, panoramic motion staged adventures, and individual performances in all realms.

Anyone who enjoys any kind of dance will find something in this show to grab your attention.  Everything was beautiful.
