When you're on the #LordOfTheDance stage, you're seen by thousands -- or tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands -- of people every night.
When you're on the Lord of the Dance stage and it's being filmed, you're seen by tens of millions of people.
These people *remember* you. They remember how you brightened their lives. To you, it's another exhilarating night of living the dream as a touring performer; to the audience that saw you -- some of whom waited *years* to see you -- it's a memory they cherish for a lifetime.
Some of those people who saw you are inspired to themselves pursue the same journey. They seek out #IrishDance schools and begin the same journey you once embarked upon. Oftentimes now, those schools are taught by Team Lord alumni, all over the world.
For years -- decades -- you put in the work. Just as your forebears did, you sacrifice and push yourself and train harder than you imagined you could.
And then, one day, it was your turn to step onto that stage.
You made it.
The dream came true.
And someone, out there in the audience tonight, will be inspired by you and remember you for their rest of their lives. You pass on what you've learned to the next generation. And the cycle continues.
That is the power of Lord of the Dance: the billion-dollar dance show, spreading Irish culture to all corners of the world. And *you* are part of that multi-generational saga.
