I love Irish dancing. I've seen Riverdance....twice. And every year I drag the Mr. to the Dublin (Ohio) Irish Festival to get my Jig fix. The IrishFest is something I look forward to every summer. There's tons of food, shopping, Irish rock bands, bag pipers and of course...Irish dancing. He must have secretly been enjoying it all this time because when I told him I had to find someone else to drag along for the ride, he seemed genuinely disappointed. Anyways, last night I spent my evening mesmerized by the Irish dancers yet again. I think as someone who danced as a child I am just amazed at how they do it. It's nothing like the typical tap/jazz/ballet that I did. They seriously don't move from the waist up while their feet and legs are moving like 100 miles an hour. The best was when a little 6 year old boy went on stage and totally stole the show. He was too cute for words. I've already warned the hubs that if my children (girl or boy) shows any interest in it.....we will have a clan of Irish dancers to entertain me at any given moment. My poor future children. They're doomed already!
PS I wanted to include a video of some Irish dancing monkey's...cause I know deep down everyone wants to see that. But I can't for the life of me figure out how to get a YouTube video on my blog. Can anyone out there help me?
