Fast Feet

The Irish music and dance show Riverdance will make a stop at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts for its farewell tour. Next up, it’s off to tour Africa, South America, and Asia — but first, there will be tons of step dancing — feet moving in unison and in strict formation at frantic speeds — inside the Au-Rene Theater (201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale). So, if you’d like to experience one last high-stepping, foot-stomping thrill, get your tickets at ticketmaster.com. Tickets cost $55, $65, or $75. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, and 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday. Visit browardcenter.org or riverdance.com.
Fri., April 30, 8 p.m.; Sat., May 1, 2 & 8 p.m.; Sun., May 2, 2 & 7 p.m., 2010
KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
