Last night, I saw Riverdance in Regina. It was amazing! I’ve seen it on TV, listened to the music, and absolutely loved it. It was the one show that has come to Saskatoon that I had regretted not seeing (but at the time I couldn’t justify $90 a ticket to see it). It’s one thing to see it on TV but it’s something else to see it live. I’m still blown away by how fast these performers can move their feet and how all those people can do it in perfect unison. It is an amazing experience.
I’ve always loved Celtic music. It’s so haunting. It can be mournful, melancholy, joyous. I think what I like most about it is how it carries such emotion with it. You feel it in the depths of your being.
Even though everything about Riverdance was so good, I think the highlight was watching the Russian Dance troupe. They were amazing! I can’t really put into words what they did, but the choreography was fantastic! And the group looked liked they were having so much fun just doing it. It was great!
