I thoroughly enjoyed it. It wasn’t top class or perfect but was fun, full of energy and enjoyable. Good night out but wouldn’t pay west end prices for it.

Very poor imitation of Riverdance/Lord of the dance. It was hyped up no end but no atmosphere at all. Instead of the standing ovation given to Lord of the dance all this got was half hearted weak applause.

I treated my sister to this show in York for a birthday present. I have never seen such an amateurish performance in my life. It was like watching the Britains got Talent rejects. For a start we had 3 male dancers and 7 female dancers....More
