The Journey of Lord of the Dance

Irish dancer Michael Flatley once said, "Everyone in the world will tell you, 'No, it can't be done.' Every time I hear that, I know I'm close to success." This philosophy was a main driving factor in the journey to Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance, which Flatley began developing in 1995 following his departure from Riverdance.

Although Flatley was born and raised in the United States, he often visited family abroad in Ireland while growing up. He fell in love with Irish dancing, encouraged by his mother and maternal grandmother, who were both Irish dance champions.

Flatley continues to honor his late grandmother at every Lord of the Dance show, leaving an empty front-row seat as a silent tribute to the woman who paved the way for his success. "The empty seat is a sign of my respect to her, for I believe she is still watching me," says Flatley.

A the age of 17, Flatley became the first American to bring the title of All-World Irish Dancing Champion to the United States. During this time, he studied traditional Irish flute and won his first of several titles as All-Ireland Flute Champion.

From his early work in the 1980s with the world-famous traditional Irish band, The Chieftains, to his game-changing performance with Riverdance at the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, Flatley was driving global excitement for Irish dance.

After providing choreography for Riverdance, Flatley came fully into his own with Lord of the Dance, the first Irish dance show based entirely on Flatley’s vision. The show weaves Celtic lore, music, and dance into a romantic story of good versus evil.

 As the 25th anniversary of Lord of the Dance approaches, Flatley is hard at work preparing a celebration worthy of one of the world’s great entertainment experiences.
