Attended performance of RIVERDANCE here in Lafayette, Louisiana a few months ago (this was their second trip here) SO FRESH to see such a talented young group of people WORKING with such grace.

That was just awsome! I absolutely loved it. How great they all were. From the oldest to the youngest I couldn’t have asked to see anything better than this was. God Bless you all.

Had the good fortune to see Riverdance in Sewell, New Jersey last week. Second time seeing it and it was just as amazing as it was the first time. I would have loved to have been there when this Flash Mob did their thing!

May be not excessive in my words if I tell you I’m crazy do you have for dance, including reviews and very sophisticated, you are on the tops of Arts.

I have seen two live RIVERDANCE shows and have tickets to see a third.
For me to see a live show, it means an expensive airline ticket and hotel stay, along with time off work. It’s completely worth it! The shows are AWESOME and a must see for anyone, even if you’re not lucky enough to be Irish!

I became aware of Riverdance as they were first bursting onto the world’s stages. I immediately purchased — and damn near wore out –the first CD of the original company. Several years later, I saw a live performance in Phoenix and — best of all — my young son and I attended one of their Fifth Anniversary performances in Dublin. Yes, we made a special trip to Ireland for just that purpose!

Thank you to all those who organizaed, planned, participated and just had to join in the FUN! “May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be at your back.

Going to see Riverdance tonight for the 3rd time. Taking my wife, mother and 3 grandchildren with me. I expect it to be just as great as the other times. Saw Lords of the dance and that doesn’t compare. Waiting to see the expression on the faces of my grandchildren, should be priceless.
