In a Telegram & Gazette feature story, English major John “Declan” Crowley shares his experiences traveling the country as one of the lead Irish step dancers on tour with ‘Lord of the Dance.”

Crowley has the role of the Lord of Darkness, who challenges the title character, the Lord of Light, in a show based on mythical Irish folklore and containing 21 scenes of precision dancing, dramatic music and special effects.

An Irish-American who grew up idolizing Michael Flatley’s dance creation, he joked about working with his Irish-dancing idol, Michael Flatley. “I tell people for me it’s like meeting Derek Jeter,” the Albany native said.
