Hi to all our Riverdance Longest Line Record Breakers-to-be,
We asked two of our most experienced dancers Padraic Moyles and Niamh O’Connor to devise some steps that meet the criteria for breaking the World Record but that also retain the magic of the Riverdance choreography. To our knowledge, July 21st will be the first time that the record has been broken by a line dancing to the actual music and choreography of Riverdance and that’s what will make this World Record Longest Line particularly special.
The other challenge that faced Padraic and Niamh was to set a standard that engages those of you who are experienced Irish Dancers but that also makes the steps accessible to those with little or no experience of Irish dance and we really hope they’ve managed to achieve this.
For those of you who are beginners, have a look at the video and see how confident you feel about mastering the steps but remember (and we really can’t stress strongly enough!), if you’re confused by the video or feel that you can’t manage the steps, don’t worry!! Just drop us a line at email@example.com and we’ll do whatever we can to work out a Plan B to ensure that you are there on the day, in the line and comfortable with what we’re asking of you. We’ve been in touch with a number of beginners about this already but just thought that at this stage we’d let everyone see the initial video in case any of you are underestimating what you can achieve between now and the big day. So don’t panic, we’re here to help in any way we can.
We’ll be in touch with more updates for all participants as July draws closer and do also follow us on Facebook for regular updates on the numbers signed-up to attend from around the world. At the moment we are currently at just over 570 from more than 30 different countries which is pretty phenomenal at this early stage! We’re comfortably on course to shatter the record so get practicing and let’s make it a stunning sight at noon on Sunday 21st July!
