Riverdance Archives for 2009
In Texas we visit College Station and Orange where we see Texas A & M University and have our Lamb Punch Party!
This week in Omaha we visit Omaha Zoo and see traditional Irish music in a local pub. We also visit Topeka for 3 shows and a great party!
After a nice short journey on the bus we arrived into Braunschweig in the afternoon. We weren’t able to do much as we had to get ready and go straight into work as we had a show to perform that night. I have to say it was the best audience we’ve had so far on the tour. They seemed to have really enjoyed themselves and because of that so did we. It made travelling and performing on the same day a lot easier for us.
Baton Rouge had a great southern charm to it and around the theater there were many shops and restaurants. I didn’t try the alligator, but I heard it tasted just like chicken.
After another four show weekend we were back on the bus and heading to Hamburg, for a lot of us this was our second time in Hamburg so it was nice that we knew where we were going and what there was to do.
I am Deirdre Hamilton, a lead dancer with the Corrib company. We have just recently begun our European tour. At the moment we are in Germany and getting ready to head to Russia very soon! Exciting stuff. I am going to be giving you all a little inside look on what the life of a lead dancer in Riverdance is like!
