I was reminded of Riverdance by a Facebook friend, and could not resist once more immersing myself in the driving rhythms and pulsing harmonies of traditional Irish stepdancing. No commentary or questioning the universe today. Instead, here is the entire hour and 35 minute performance by the original dance company, headed by Michael Flatley and Jean Butler. The venue is Radio City Music Hall in New York City, during their 1966 tour. For a shorter exposure which will still send chills down your spine, here is the four minute finale. Saints perserve us!
