And then, it was done.
The #LordOfTheDance #FeetOfFlames troupe has completed fourteen days of quarantine. Within the next eight hours from the time of this writing, Team Lord will have left the hotel and finally be underway.
No #IrishDance troupe in history has ever had to go through this -- and there's a massive stadium tour on the horizon. The team has drilled constantly in their individual rooms, but at last, the time has come to set foot on the stage.
Over these last two weeks we've done our best to document these events. The uniqueness of this situation is unlikely to ever be duplicated -- and right now, Lord of the Dance is the only Irish dance show in the world that's on tour. We're it. We're carrying the flag for the whole commercial #IrishDancing genre -- a genre created by Michael Flatley.
And speaking of Michael...
You didn't think we were going to end this fourteen-day video series anticlimactically, did you? The legend himself has provided the opening message for this, our final quarantine recap video. His words of encouragement fire us up for the challenge ahead.
(Author's personal note: it is a distinct pleasure working for Michael.)
To all of the Team Lord OG alumni who provided messages of encouragement, to everyone in the current All-Star troupe who provided videos for this series, and to all of you reading this at home all over the world: we sincerely thank you. You're a part of this journey with us.
Today's final quarantine video comes from footage provided by: Jessica Aquila Judge, Gillian Monaghan, Lynsey Smyth, Ruth Charles, Lauren Clarke, Giada Costenaro Cunningham, Aisling Sage, Ciara Loughran, Cyra Taylor, Olivia Graydon, Declan Durning, Niamh Shevlin, Sarah Louise, Sean Scally, Paul McCabe, Gavin Shevlin, Erin Learmont, Natasha Woytiuk, Megan Ramsay, and Ellie-Mae Grace Wheeler.
We didn't come here to finish second.
It's time for Planet Ireland to return. Feet of Flames Taiwan is a GO!
