Bennet School group dance

The Bennett School of Irish Dance will fill the stage at the Lone Tree Arts Center with the exciting sounds and color of Irish music and dancing on Saturday, May 10th. Spirit of Ireland 2014 is the latest in the series of shows which have delighted audiences every year with traditional steps and modern choreographies in the Irish tradition.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Riverdance, the phenomenon which brought Irish dancing from church halls and country pubs to Broadway. What better way to celebrate that revolution in world entertainment than by enjoying Spirit 2014?
The Lone Tree Arts Center at 10075 Commons Street will provide a luxurious setting in keeping with the quality of Spirit 2014. More than 100 Bennett School dancers will showcase the audience-pleasing skills they hone in more than 80 performances per year, including the Cheyenne Celtic Musical Arts Festival, Elizabeth Celtic Festival, Colorado Scottish Festival, Long’s Peak Scottish/Irish Highland Festival and Summerset Festival.
The roots of Irish dancing reach back thousands of years, but the dancing has always thrived on innovation as dancers devise new steps and routines to fit traditional tunes, and fit traditional steps to new music. Spirit 2014 will draw on both strains to present colorful costumes and skillful steps in an ever-changing variety for an exciting evening’s entertainment.
Spirit 2014 will be presented 6:00-8:00 PM on Saturday, May 10th (doors open at 5:30.) Tickets are $15 (adults) $10 (seniors) and $8 (children 7-15.) Tickets are available online from the Lone Tree Arts Center’s web site or by calling their box office at 720.509.1000; you may also buy tickets at the door. By Bill Bennett
