The Most Awesome Danceshow Ever!!!
3 April 2001 | by (Holland) – See all my reviews

I first saw Michael Flatley at the Academy Awards of 1997, and it literally took my breath away. I was amazed by how fast he could move and the music was just fabulous. Up to then I never was a fan of dancing but Michael Flatley pulled me over the line. At the end of 1997 the video "Lord of the Dance" came out in Holland and I immediately went to buy it. Up to now, I've seen the video for about a 100 times, and I'm still not bored with it. "Lord of the Dance" is without a doubt the best danceshow ever. Riverdance (which is also a fantastic danceshow) is boring compared to Michael Flatley's first soloproject. The show opens with the fantastic piece called "Cry of the Celts", which in my opinion is the best piece of the show. It starts off with a solo of Michael Flatley in which he shows us exactly who the lord of the dance is. After he has finished his solo the entire troup comes to th e stage en gives us a great example of a perfect choreographed dancepiece. The show last about 1,5 hour, but it's never boring, because it has superb dancepieces, great music from Ronan Hardiman, fantastic sound effects and beautiful art-direction. This makes "Lord of the Dance" the most awesome danceshow ever.
