Short Description of "Riverdance" Keeps Tapping its Way to a Great Show

Riverdance

at Proctors

Schenectady, NY

Riverdance, the mind-blowing, foot-tapping, hand-clapping ensemble of in- sync Irish dancers, has tapped its way back to Proctors for its 20th anniversary show currently making its way around the world (for a complete list of shows, see http://riverdance.com/usa/)

This show continues to bring hoots and howls for more, while bringing the audience to standing ovations. Maybe it's me (ok, it is me), but the dancers get younger and younger each time I see them. Missing, of course, is the king of the show, Michael Flatley. Flately has a host of injuries, many severe, and recently shared with the DailyMail that dancing destroyed his body [http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3901344/Lord-sweatpants-Retired-Michael-Flatley-looks-unrecognisable-struggles-step-revealing-dancing-wrecked-body.html.]

I am not surprised.

Irish dancing evolved into a tight space series of movements, because 'back in the day', space was limited and dancers often were confined to table tops. The moves, twisting and jarring are done with exact precision, repeatedly, and in a close space. It remains one of my favorite shows of all time. But as my own knees have started to go, I can't believe the impact Irish dancing must have on the body.

The 20th anniversary show is simply wonderful, and will not disappoint. Set to a narrative and lots of fog, not many props are needed here. The entertainment is fantastic. The dancing is simply amazing. And this show is set to provide entrertainment for years to come.

Go see it.
