It's the wee hours of the morning at the time of this writing here in Taiwan, which means it's primetime in Europe. We're beginning Day #5 of our quarantine, so here's a recap of Day #4, with a twist -- OG Little Spirit Helen Egan Maguire has a special message for all the dancers in the current Team Lord #FeetOfFlames troupe!
Today, we have nine more days of quarantine left. We also have messages from nine more legendary members of the 1996 OG Troupe for the current cast. Who are the nine? You'll have to come back each day to find out. :)
Isolation can be a challenge, and it's always nice to receive letters from home. We've taken it one step further, bringing videos of encouragement from some of the most legendary dancers in the history of commercial #IrishDancing. There is a vast saga of history in the near-25 years between the OG Troupe and the current troupe, but the commitment to excellence is the same. Until you've toured with #LordOfTheDance and performed in stadiums in Michael Flatley's billion-dollar dance show, you simply haven't reached the summit of the mountain.
We'd like to give a special shout-out to the parents, relatives, and friends of the dancers we're featuring in our videos and livestreams. These are your sons and daughters, your siblings, your friends, who are on this journey right now -- many of them experiencing life as a professional touring performer for the first time, under the most unbelievable of circumstances. Your interactive encouragement means more than you know.
Today's video compilation comes from Megan Ramsay, Jean Kennedy, Lauren Wales, Ellie-Mae Wheeler, Simon Polushkin, Dearbhla Casey, Olivia Graydon, Giada Cunningham, Niamh Shevlin, Olivia Allen, Aisling Sage, Niamh Rogers, Gillian Monaghan, Peig O'Connor, Lauren Clarke, and Gareth O'Connor. We hope you enjoy!
