• Michael Ryan Flatley (born July 16, 1958) is an Irish step dancer from the south side of the country. As a child, he moved to Chicago - the city which he considers his home town. He began dancing lessons at 11 and, in 1975, became the first non-European to win the All-Ireland World Championship for Irish dance. As a trained boxer he won the Chicago Golden Gloves Championship in 1975. Flatley is also known as being a proficient flautist, having twice won the All-Ireland Competition.
Dennis Dennehy, who died Sunday, was an influential Irish dance teacher for more than half a century, starting a renowned school in Chicago and counting among his many students the most famous Irish dancer in the world, “Lord of the Dance” Michael Flatley. “Without Dennis, many people, like myself, would have never had a chance to learn this beautiful art form,” Flatley said. Mr. Dennehy was 73 and lived in Oak Lawn.
