LOTD then and now. Not quite sure how I feel about this.

I agree but if I remember correctly, Bernadette Flynn was like 16 during LOTD so I’m not sure how I feel about that either…

I didn’t know that ^^

I wouldn’t even practice in my underwear. Not to mention, perform.
Forget “wiggle, wiggle, wiggle” in my case it would be more like ” jiggle, jiggle, jiggle” lol.

but why? it looks really stupid??

I’ve thought about this a little and I think the reason it bugs me is it is only for the women. Yes flately goes shirtless but there is no exclusively male number with the boys in speedos. Its trying to appeal to the male gaze even when it has a mostly female audience.

YES. thank you. stole the words right out of my mouth. 

I think because they’re more like knickers rather than high waisted shorts kind of thing it makes a big difference

theorangerogue and I had plenty a conversation about this at #TTF but basically Flately’s shows just blatantly objectify women…like, there is no subtly whatsoever. The girls barely even dance. They writhe around on stage until the guy comes along to distract them. It’s horrible.  

Ugh yes. As much as I admire and appreciate the MASSIVE good that Mr. Flatley has done for Irish dance, I have trouble reconciling the power huge shows like Lord of the Dance have and the way some of those shows portray their female dancers.

Slow clap for the rest of the Irish dance world finally figuring this out


I have never liked Michael Flatley.  I appreciate the work he’s done to bring Irish dance into the mainstream, I do, but he’s just blatantly creepy.

^^^ yesssssss so many people would get genuinely mad at me for saying I didn’t like michael at all
