This was my first time seeing Riverdance in person and I was very much impressed. The dancing was marvelous. I was a little disappointed that the Russian dancers had been cut from the show. Also since the stage at the Civic Center was very small, the cast had to be trimmed down quite a bit, but that's OK. The music was superb, the cast very talented and my only regret is there are no Step Dancing instructors in my area.
