"Spirit of the Dance the New Millennium," one of a number of successful Ireland-originated shows touring the country now, will make its Island debut March 13 through 18 at the Hawaii Theatre.
Coinciding with St. Patricks Day, March 17, the show brings the spirit of Ireland to the concert stage, featuring the Irish International Dance Company in a burst of their traditional culture laced with flamenco, classical ballet, salsa and jazz.
|Ireland's "Spirit of the Dance" ensemble combines the precision of a drill team and the grace of dance.
