This past weekend I participated in an Irish festival, full of Irish music, singing, and dancing. I saw Riverdance in high school and always wanted to learn how to dance like that. So a few years ago I found a local theater that offered lessons. We started with soft shoe lessons and then progressed to hard shoe. We've done a few exhibition dances, but never at a festival.
We aren't Riverdance perfect, but we try hard and we have fun! It's great exercise too!!
(It was also 95 degrees that day, which is evident on our faces!
