Michael Flatley has set up an outreach programme to provide young people the opportunity to dance on stage at the Playhouse Theatre in London’s West End. The talented cast of Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games will conduct once-weekly workshops commencing 10th November through to 15th December 2015. In association with West End Creative Learning at ATG, students between the ages of 11 and 18 will be taught steps by the cast of Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games and be given an insight into the world of theatre. Following the workshop, they will be invited to watch the evening performance of the show. A limited number of places will be available for these workshops.
Michael Flatley said: ‘Every child should be given the opportunity to dance and it is my honour to be able to encourage young people to follow their dreams.’
Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games opened at the Playhouse Theatre on 10th October 2015 and runs until 3rd January 2016, following a highly successful six-month limited season at the Dominion Theatre, which finished on 5th September.
The cast at the Playhouse Theatre is led by some of Michael Flatley’s dynamic young stars James Keegan, Morgan Comer and Cathal Keaney, whilst Rachael O’Connor plays the role of Erin the Goddess.
Flatley’s latest show Dangerous Games has exciting and ground-breaking new technology, including holographs, special effects lighting, dancing robots, world champion acrobats and the greatest team of Irish dancers in the world. The score is composed by Gerard Fahy.
