Saturday, March 18 at 7pm, Heritage Hall will present Bristol Ballet’s “Celtic Flair”, sponsored by H&R Block. The excitement of Irish dancing and music will fill the air as music from the wildly popular “River Dance” is featured in much of the production, with tempos that vary from upbeat and exciting to soft and lyrical. Choreographed in the style of Irish Step Dance, some movements may be slightly familiar but with a balletic twist. “The music is great; the dancing is exciting. When you put the two together, it’s a sure success in entertainment.” Michele Plescia, artistic director
