Behind the scenes of ‘Take the Floor’

ImageCreators of “Take the Floor,” this summer’s Irish dance spectacular that came together in the matter of days, released a behind-the-scenes video on YouTube today.

Over the course of 10 days, show directors Paula Goulding and Shane McAvinchey taught more than 50 dancers the ins and outs of Irish show dancing. The majority of the dancers came from competitive dancing backgrounds, having — in general — little to no show experience.

In June, I had the pleasure of chatting with both Goulding and McAvinchey about the development of the show and how the two came to collaborate. The video below follows up on the show, interviewing the directors and some cast members just a few days before the show’s Dublin debut.
