I am sure there is no person who hasn’t heard of the Irish phenomenon, Riverdance. It’s a mesmerizing theatrical show of traditional Irish music and dance that never fails to take our breath away.
The unique music and the ear catching rhythm make it so appealing that it is seen by millions of people worldwide and is considered one of the most successful dance productions in the world.
The dancers’ moves are almost impossible to recreate because they are quick and precise and give the feeling as though they are floating, not dancing. The choreography is complex, but they do it with ease, and it’s a pleasure to watch.
Now, can you imagine performing this dancing routines on ice? If you think it would be impossible, you are wrong. The U.S national champion figure skater Jason Brown and his coach decided for Jason to skate to “Reel Around The Sun” from the Riverdance show and the decision turned to be one of the best they’ve ever made. The result is incredible.
Once the music started, Jason starts skating and leaping, and everyone is stunned by his elegance while moving. The whole performance is elevated to a whole new level and we are glad we had the chance too see something so unique.
At the end of the performance, Jason receives standing ovations by the cheering crowd. The act was seen by nearly 26 million people. Now it’s your turn to watch it and enjoy!
