Follow Your Dream, Day #345: Happy Birthday, Cathal Keaney!

People of the internet: please join us in wishing Lord of the Dance Cathal Keaney a happy birthday today!

Cathal is an electrifying Irish dancer who starred in the original Dance For Hope video that went viral last month, due in no small part to Cathal becoming the first professional Irish dancer to incorporate a rather amusing reference to pandemic panic-buying into a dance routine (you know what we're talking about!). Known for his remarkably loose ankles and extremely intricate footwork, Cathal is also a qualified mechanical engineer, having developed the Portable Sprung Floor for Irish dancers to train on no matter where they are. Have a look at the PSF in action with members of Team Lord:

Cathal is also an incredibly entertaining on-camera personality, teaching interactive Irish dance lessons every Wednesday night (including tonight!) on Dancelord TV. His "Guess the Dance" game, where fans have to guess the LOTD number from just a snippet of a rhythm pattern, has become a huge hit. Tune in tonight at 6pm UK Time to enjoy another round!

It's always special when a Lord of the Dance has a birthday. Please join us in wishing happy birthday to Lord of the Dance Cathal Keaney!
