You have until November 8th to check out the 20th anniversary show of Riverdance at SHN Golden Gate Theatre. The popular show comes from a sold out run across Europe and Asia. Over 20 dancers bring this show to life including an Irish troupe, Flamenco and Urban dancers. Not many people seem to know this as its not emphasized in its advertising.

The show began on February 9,1995 at the Point Theatre in Dublin and has kept audiences dancing and clapping ever since. Riverdance also has segments showcasing the musicians instead of hiding them in an orchestra pit. They interact with the audience and dancers adding another magical element to it.

The repetitiveness of the Irish troupe can start to feel monotonous to some but the flamenco and urban dancers help break it up. In the urban scene there are also comical moments and a little friendly competition among the characters. The audience ate it up and laughed the whole way through. The immigrant story is woven in, as Art is the best way to express the ups and downs of moving from one place to the next. It’s a show you should definitely experience at least once, especially if you love dance.
