Tickets are now on sale for a performance by Michael Flately’s Lord of the Dance at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre March. 3.

Since starting 16 years ago, the Irish dance show has been selling out arenas and theatres around the world.

The rhythmic tapping of the performers’ feet will tell a tale of good versus evil, during which a love story develops.

Each dancer in the 40-plus cast is a national or international dance champion. Together they create a mesmerizing performance that features great precision, music, costumes and lighting.

“Lord of the Dance is one of the most well-known Irish dance shows in the world,” said Jason Blumenfeld, the general manager of the AESC.

Tickets are $65, $55, and $45 and can be purchased at the AESC box office at 33800 King Rd., online at www.abbotsfordcentre.ca, or by phone at 1-866-977-AESC (2372).
