Everyone has at least heard of the well-known group Riverdance. These Irish dancing professionals have been crowd favorites over the years. They are incomparably skilled through years of practice. Riverdance is a dramatic dance company, not just a dance ensemble. Each time they go on stage, it’s a different presentation with a story and a dance step.
For such skill and synchrony, artists must continually practice. Step is a very colorful and energetic dance that includes not only physical movements, but also a variety of noises produced by tapping the feet on the ground. The step is a complex dance. It requires an extremely fine sense of rhythm and tact, as well as strong leg muscles, to master. The step becomes a special sight when combined with beautiful flow and Celtic music. When Riverdance performed at Eurovision during intermission in 1994, people first became aware of it.
The crowd was impressed by the performance of the dancers in their show. The trio began touring with concerts after winning the competition and gaining worldwide fame. Riverdance moved away from just focusing on folk themes over time. International dances were staged and dancers from all over the world were welcomed into the troupe by the choreographers. The band’s popularity grew to the point that it was decided to split into two equal subgroups in 1996, which would perform the same shows. As a result, Riverdance has evolved from an artistic ensemble to a commercial ensemble. This had little impact on their performance.
The illustrious group celebrates its 25th anniversary today. The dancers embarked on a world tour in recognition of this occasion. They made the decision to open their concerts in America with the program America is looking for talent. The team performed for the judges and audience members. They presented a brand new program which combined aspects of Irish folk dancing with the cultural heritage of other peoples. Riverdance is more than just a dance company; it is an entirely new art form.
