SPIRIT OF THE DANCE (article first published : 2001-09-17)

The international smash hit Spirit Of The Dance is one of the most successful shows ever to come out of Ireland and has been seen by more than 20million people around the world. Box office records have been smashed in 15 different countries and theatres worldwide report record-breaking ticket sales as soon as a performance of this thrilling Irish dance spectacular is announced.

Bernard Jay, Johannesburg Civic Theatre's CEO who initiated the Spirit Of The Dance South African tour, points out that the ticket prices ranging R100 to R175 makes this world class production much more affordable than previous similar tours. "I saw the show in the UK, " says Jay Bernard, "and the audience reaction was incredible. I knew I simply had to persuade them to come to South Africa. It is without a doubt one of the best shows ever to visit here. I am thrilled they have agreed to come".

Irish in origin and bursting with raw energy, Spirit Of The Dance is a breathtaking production featuring a spectacular blend of traditional culture that has thrilled audiences all over the world. Powerful, show stopping Irish dance combines with the passionate Latino rhythms of Tango, Flamenco and red-hot Salsa to produce a thrilling, heart-pounding production that the International Post described as “The World's Greatest Irish Dance Show”.

The spectacular, award winning Spirit of the Dance is brought to South Africa in association with eTV. Performances take place in the Playhouse Opera from February 12 to 24 before going on to Johannesburg and Cape Town. Book at Ticktweb outlets or on www.ticketweb.co.za
