Millions of people around the world have seen Riverdance first hand, and many many more have seen it on television, online or have at the very least heard about it. What started out as a Eurovision Song Contest interval act has now become what is definitely the most popular and probably the longest running Irish performance act in history. The traditional Irish music and dance show celebrated its 25th anniversary this last year and shows no signs of stopping any time soon. Місhаеl Flаtlеу’s shows have played to more than 60 million people in 60 countries and have grossed more than $1 billion.

Immediately after the Riverdance split, Flatley decided to create his own show, Lord of the Dance. It premiered in June 1996 at the Point Theatre (now 3Arena) in Dublin then made its U.K. premiere at the London Coliseum. The music for the show was composed by Ronan Hardiman. In 1997, Flatley earned £36 million, ranking him 25th among the world’s highest earning entertainers.

Flаtlеу ѕtudіеd іn Dеnnеhу Ѕсhооl оf Іrіѕh Dаnсе. Не tаkеѕ аdmіѕѕіоn tо Вrоthеr Rісе Ніgh Ѕсhооl and bесаmе thе fіrѕt Аmеrісаn tо wоn Wоrld Іrіѕh Dаnсе tіtlе аt Оіrеасhtаѕ Rіnсе nа Сruіnnе, whісh іѕ Іrіѕh Dаnсіng Сhаmріоnѕhірѕ

In 1998, Flatley created an expanded version of the show called Feet of Flames which was performed outdoors in Hyde Park, London on a 4-tier hydraulic stage, with a live band including guitarists and violins, and over 100 dancers performing on all 4 levels of the stage, again with music by Ronan Hardiman. The show featured six new numbers; one of which is Flatley’s solo.

In 1999, he produced another version of that show that included half of the original show and half new material. Titled Feet of Flames: The Victory Tour, the show was performed a single-level stage and toured Europe in 2000 and the U.S. in 2001.

Flatley’s next show, Celtic Tiger Live, opened in July 2005. The show explores the history of the Irish people and Irish emigration to the U.S., fusing a wide range of dance styles, including jazz. The show also includes popular elements from his previous shows, such as Flatley’s flute solos and the line of dancers in the finale.

Місhаеl Flаtlеу

In November 2007, Flatley and a troupe of male dancers performed on Dancing with the Stars in the U.S. In October 2008, he appeared as a guest judge on an episode of the show, filling in for Len Goodman. He performed the solo “Capone” from Celtic Tiger on the show. Flatley was also the host of Superstars of Dance, an NBC series that ran for 5 episodes in early 2009.

In December 2009, Flatley returned to the stage for a limited run of the “Hyde Park” version of Feet of Flames in Taiwan. The run of shows had to be extended to meet the demand for tickets.

In 2010, he returned to headline the Lord of the Dance show, with performances in arenas in England, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria.

Lord of the Dance 3D, the 3D film of the return tour, debuted in theaters worldwide in 2011. The movie featured performances with new sets, new costumes, state-of-the-art lighting, pyrotechnics, and projections. The 3D film was also released on Blu-ray and a DVD and Blu-ray disc, Michael Flatley Returns as Lord of the Dance, were created.

Місhаеl іѕ thе grеаtеѕt dаnсеr оf аll tіmе. He is credited with reinventing traditional Irish dance by incorporating new rhythms, syncopation, and upper body movements, which were previously absent from the dance. He is in the Guinness World Records for tap dancing 35 times per second and his feet were at one time insured for $57.6 million. Flatley retired in 2016 due to constant spinal, knee, foot, and rib pain, but in January 2017, Flatley introduced his troupe for a performance at the inauguration of Donald Trump. Flatley called it “a great honour”.

In 2001, Flatley purchased Castlehyde, the house originally owned by Douglas Hyde, the first president of Ireland, in North Cork, then in a derelict condition, for €3 million. He spent €27 million renovating the mansion and another €20 million furnishing it with artwork and antiques. In 2015, Michael purchased a mansion in Belgravia, London, just off Eaton Square, for €28 million and listed Castlehyde for sale for €20 million. In addition to Castlehyde and his London mansion, Flatley owns valuable properties in the Caribbean, New York, Beverly Hills, and Villefranche-sur-Mer. He has invested a significant portion of his wealth in Berkshire Hathaway.

In June 2006, Flatley began dating dancer Niamh O’Brien, who danced in several of his shows. They were married in a Roman Catholic ceremony in Fermoy, County Cork, on October 14, 2006, with a reception at Castlehyde. He and his wife have a son, Michael St. James, born in 2007.
