Riverdance is the ultimate in Irish step dancing. The 1st perforamnce was in 1994 during intermission of the Eurovision Song Contest.
Lord of the Dance is an Irish musical and dance production that was created, choreographed, produced by Irish dancer Michael Flatley, also its star.
Michael Flatley found his first fame starring in Riverdance, but he left the show in 1995 before its debut in London after a disagreement over creative control. Flatley dreamed of putting together a dance show capable of playing in arenas instead of traditional theaters. He soon began thinking of rhythm patterns and steps for an a capella number. This number would later become “Planet Ireland”, the show’s finale. The show took 6 months to bring it from conception to the stage. Auditions where held in the SFX City Theatre in Dublin.
