THE International smash hit Spirit of the Dance is one of the most successful shows ever to come out of Ireland and has been seen by more than 25 million people in 15 countries around the world.
And now Whitby Gazette readers can see it when the show stops off next month as part of a national tour at Scarborough’s Futurist Theatre.
Winner of nine Global Awards, including Best Choreography and Best International Production, the foot-stomping spectacular has up to 10 separate dance troupes touring the world, with four permanent shows in America.
Irish in origin and bursting with raw energy, the show combines heart-pounding Irish Dance with the sensual Latino rhythms of Flamenco and Red Hot Salsa in a thrilling production of strength and passion.
The world champion dancers of the Irish International Dance Company sound like a runaway express train and their frenzied skill and military precision sends shivers down your spine.
Not one Irish dance shoe steps out of line as their thunderous feet perform as one, with an excitement that leaves audiences screaming for more.
Brilliant lighting, dazzling costumes and breathtaking choreography all add to the atmosphere.
With thunderous applause, standing ovations and sold-out crowds at every performance, Spirit of the Dance is being billed as one of the greatest dance shows ever.
Spirit of the Dance is coming to the Futurist Theatre on Sunday 10 April at 7pm.
Seats are priced £21.50 and £16.50 for OAP’s and children. To book call the ticketline on (01723) 365789/374500 or visit www.futuristtheatre.co.uk.
