Follow Your Dream, Day #582: Capone Backstage

It's amazing how Michael Flatley's art form overlaid atop #IrishDance inherently lends itself to a wide array of stylistic interpretation. One of the best examples of this is Capone, from Celtic Tiger: a 1920s-themed Chicago mobster dance number using Flatley-style Irish dancing in a wildly new way.

Here's a fun glimpse behind the scenes from Capone with thoughts from the legend himself, Michael Flatley. Today you can follow #LordOfTheDance backstage -- and interact with the troupe as the show is happening -- thanks to livestreaming technology. While this tech didn't exist in 2005, this is a fun glimpse behind the curtain for an amazing number that still shines as an example of just how creative you can get with #IrishDancing.
