“If you have a goal or dream in sight, most of the time it’s not going to be a straight road. You’re going to have to take a longer, more difficult direction to get there.”
On this week’s show, lead dancer, Lauren Smyth, tells Darren Casey how she was rejected for Riverdance but wouldn’t take no for an answer and wouldn’t give up her dream of dancing on the show.
“What makes you different is also your strength….You have to persist and from a young age I always felt I was going to be on Riverdance.”
You’ll also hear from musician, Tara Howley, on life on the road travelling through Louisiana and how her music was a grateful memory for one widowed American wife.
