Riverdance: Dinner Out


Riverdance curtain

First, I would like to thank you all for the very kind words and encouragement after yesterday’s post. I LOVE physical therapy and my good days are starting to out number my bad days. Onwards and upwards! I am going to get through this and be stronger on the other side!

One of my daughter’s Christmas presents was tickets to see Riverdance.  Many of the girls from her Irish dance school were there. My daughter sat mesmerized through the first half of the show. I don’t think she even blinked once for fear of missing a footstep. She loved the dancers dresses and the footsteps of the guys when they were showing off in their hard shoes.

After the show many of the girls went to the side door to meet the cast as they went to the bus to head to their next show in Chicago. Here are 17 of the Irish dance students with the main lead male and female Irish dancers, the guy wearing the Star Wars shirt and the woman standing next to him with the dark hair and bright red lipstick. I think my daughter’s dance teacher could have held a class right after the show and every one of the girls would have shown up and done anything she asked them to! I know my daughter was over the moon excited when it was done.

But, we didn’t have dinner at home last night. It was a special night so on the way to the show we had Culver’s drive through.  Culver’s is a regional chain burger place.  We needed fast and inexpensive ($38 for the four of us). It’s funny what we consider inexpensive now a days isn’t it?

    I took my youngest daughter to see it last summer at the Gaiety in Dublin. It was still wonderful after all these years! Funny…just as I am typing…I remember seeing Riverdance for the very first time on t.v. during the Eurovision Song Contest…it was unbelievable! So glad you and your daughter enjoyed it Stateside with her dance group.

      The funniest thing was when the dancers started talking to the girls one of the littler girls said, “They really are from Ireland!” They never thought that they would be from there. It was cute.

    I took my oldest daughter to see Annie in Austin, Texas. She was in 2nd grade and we still talk about it and how much she loved it. She is 24 now!!! Keep making memories!
