Kick-ball-change may be the only thing that lingers in the confines of your memory from the years of tap dancing lessons your parents forced upon you, but that shouldnt stop you from enjoying others whove perfected like tedious crafts. Especially when theyve placed the foot-stomping and leg-flailing into a performance that pins good against evil, set behind an historical Irish folk music soundtrack. While captivating audiences the world over through his utilization of traditional Irish dance, Michael Flatleys Lord of the Dance does just that. Witness what the Los Angeles Times called a show piece extravaganza at the Orange County Performing Arts Center before this talented troupe heads back to the land of the shamrock.
