Today, I am about to embark on another exciting tour with ‘Riverdance’. For the next five months, I will be travelling across USA & Canada, to over 80 destinations, performing to thousands of people every week and ultimately living my dream.
Well this week began with the old ritual of taking down of the suitcase from my attic and since Hawaii wasn’t all too long ago, my case happens to be cobweb-free. (Sigh of relief!)
So I started the packing process with searching for my dance shoes.

Watch Craig Ashurst and Caterina Coyne during their TV appearance on Hawaiian TV.
Principal Dancer Caterina Coyne had a very busy week in Honolulu with a host of press events scheduled. Riverdance North American press representative Merle Frimark was there to guide her through the busy week.
“watch the feet – 95 percent of this happens from the waist down. The dancers actually play music with their feet”
“Look at the musicians. There is not a sheet of music anywhere. We’ve always insisted that is be treated like a ceili — a party.
“Its not a performance. It’s not a sort of masque. It’s live. It’s organic. It’s an event powered by pride.”
A feast of entertainment was had by all in the exclusive Pantages Theatre in Hollywood this past week. And it wasn’t just the people of LA but also the cast and crew of Riverdance who were entertained.
Basing ourselves at the comfortable, Hollywood Renaissance Hotel, we enjoyed an array of daytime and nightime entertainment.
Ten very important Irish dancers made their way to the dressing rooms tucked away in the heart of the studio and were soon greeted by the film crew to begin rehearsals and blocking on the set of ‘The Price is Right’. How important we felt when the host Drew Carey jumped up onstage to greet us.
