Lord of the Dance...

...was awesome, wonderful, stupendous, fantastic, amazing!!

First of all, the seats Jim got us were incredible ~ 6 rows back and dead center on the stage! The music was great ~ impossible to keep from tapping your toes most of the time; hauntingly beautiful the rest.
Then there was the dancing... I'd seen some of the shows on TV, and loved them. But live, the tapping is even more incredible! Their shoes are miked, and the power they convey is soul-stirring.
And I wasn't the only one who felt that way ~ they got (and deserved!) 3 standing ovations (and we got 2 encores!!!)

Now I have to decide if I want to go hear Handel's Messiah at the Seasons!

Well, now you have done it. I have another "must see" show to tell DD I want tickets for my birthday or Christmas.
Last year I got "Stars on Ice" tickets for Christmas and season ballet tickets for my birthday.
I sure do enjoy living in the big city and getting to see all of these great shows.

So you think you can dance like that now? Seems like after watching 2 hours, you would have it down PAT!!!
