Rhythm of the Dance

Rhythm of the Dance is more than a celebration of traditional Irish music and step-dancing—it’s also a visual retrospective of the Emerald Isle. Each of the evening’s short dances depicts a different person or event from Irish history, as performed by The National Dance Company of Ireland. There’s “Blind Encounter,” a surprisingly comic take on the war for independence in the 18th century, and “The Drill,” a more somber number about revolutionary leader Michael Collins. In “The Hill of Tara,” the pagan Celts meet the Christian faithful at the former seat of the King of Ireland, while in “Celtic Warriors” the dancers embody traditional Celtic battle-drums. It’s not all ancient history either: other vignettes take place in the era of swing music, the rocking 1960s, and the current cyborg uprising. Rounding out the evening are the Young Irish Tenors, who will sing traditional tunes such as “Danny Boy” and “Eileen Og” while backed by harp, fiddle, tin whistle, and bodhrán.<p>

Count Basie Theatre

Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests might feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details grab the eyes of visitors, recalling the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling them to the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar Magazine, who listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.<p>
