At the core of commercial #IrishDancing, the genre that Michael Flatley invented, there is a philosophical debate: is the show the star, or are the stars the show?
#LordOfTheDance firmly believes in the latter. What people picture when they think of commercial #IrishDance is Michael's turbocharged art form overlaid atop the dance, brought to life by the best Irish dancers in the world. Every single troupe member in Team Lord is a star; they are the best of the best, having trained their entire lives -- in some cases, literally before they could walk -- to dance.
When you join Team Lord, especially for a massive #FeetOfFlames tour, it hits you: this is the big leagues. This is as massive as it gets. You're part of a billion-dollar dance show which continues to sell out *stadiums* a quarter of a century after Michael first brought it to life. You've joined an elite fraternity, tasked with bringing the magic of Planet Ireland to life *live* onstage every night.
Thus, we encourage each Team Lord star to film their journey, if they so wish; this allows you to see the experience as they saw it, live it vicariously through them, and form an emotional connection with them. They are the new generation of superstars, carrying the flag up the hill; and with the 25th anniversary year of Lord of the Dance coming up fast, we want you to know who they are.
This, then, is Lucas Lawton's Impossible Tour.
*These* are the good old days.
