Kaegan Tribute

---------------------------

Kaegan hails from a little village in the Netherlands called: Ossendrecht.
He actually was born in Bergen op Zoom on December 10 - 1988.
He has one older sister ( Jaimie ), one older brother ( Jeremy ) and one younger brother ( Killian ).
When Kaegan was a little boy, he always had the urge to be on a stage.  At the age of 7 Kaegan already was a fanatic member of a show dance group and he performed at several big events with that show.

At the age of 12 Kaegan and his brother Killian started with Irish dance lessons.  That's because he loved Lord of the Dance so much.
His father ( Leon ) lived in Australia in an Irish community, so they have a lot of Irish friends. The kids were raised quite Irish and they all visited Ireland several times during holiday breaks.
His parents Leon and Martina have always been very supportive for Kaegan and Killian while they took the dance lessons and when they had competitions.    

 

Me and KaeganKaegan and his brother Killian took Irish dancing lessons at the " Celtic Border " school in Bergen op Zoom ( Netherlands ).
Their teacher is Ann Gallagher TCRG.  
Now the school has changed its name into :
The first competition Kaegan competed at was the "2nd Netherlands Open Feis" in Amsterdam on november 3 - 2001.

Ever since Kaegan danced at a lot of competitions and he has won all championship titles in Europe. Last year he won the qualifiers for the Worlds in Frankfurt.  But unfortunately Kaegan could not compete at the Worlds, because he was very busy with the rehearsals for the new show of Michael Flatley " Celtic Tiger " in England.

The thing he likes most while he is dancing on stage is that he's able to let the audience enjoy themselves and even make them happy.  And he really loves to dance too!

Before Kaegan auditioned for Michael Flatley's new show, he was still at school. He was in his final year of the "Mollercollege" in Ossendrecht. After school Kaegan stepped into his hardshoes and practiced many hours....... he trained for 2,5 to 3 hours every day.....also in the weekends ! So after a lot of training and hard work Kaegan was very excited he could audition for the " real work ".
He had to audition in front of his favorite dancer of all times Michael Flatley and after a few days he got the call that he was in !!

Kaegan has rehearsed for a moths with the other cast members of Celtic Tiger. On 17 June, the show had its first appearance for a crowd of screaming people in Birmingham, there were 500 fans invited and all the dancers family and friends where there, the DVD recordings were made. The official opening night for public to see Kaegan in Celtic Tiger was on July 9 - 2005 in Budapest, Hungary. Now the show will open in America on 27 September, Madison Square Garden in New York. The Celtic Tiger tour has moved across in the United States and Canada in 2005 and will tour around April, May and June 2006 Europe and also visit Taiwan, Asia in June 2006. See the Tour info page for more information.
