Dublin Irish Dance “Stepping Out”
Who would have predicted, when Riverdance exploded into world-wide popularity in 1995, that 22 years later audiences would still hunger for baroque-influenced traditional music combined with the spectacle of those rhythms thunderously pounded out by seemingly inexhaustible Irish dancers? Direct from Dublin, Ireland, Celebrity Artist Series will present Dublin Irish Dance. Choreographer Anthony Fallon performed as a principal dancer with Riverdance for 12 years and was a four-time World Irish Solo Dance Champion. The Dublin Irish Dance company is vibrant troupe of world champion Irish step dancers, together with an eight member traditional Irish band and vocalist, who have performed throughout the world with Riverdance, Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance, and Celtic Women. Fallon and producer/director Eric Cunningham with their all-star cast will bring to life in Mitrani Hall the epic tale of Celtic culture in a gala celebration of Irish music and dance. For the Irish and Irish at heart, this performance arrives just days before St. Patrick’s Day and recalls the rousing enjoyment from other great Celtic performers previously presenting by Celebrity Artist Series: : Bonnie Rideout (2000), Eileen Ivers (2002) and Natalie MacMaster (2010).
