Dance Above the Rainbow: Irish Dance Video Featuring My Choreography

01.31.14

I've been working on this dance video for over a month now and I finally put it all together yesterday. The entire dance is choreographed by me, and I'm so proud of it! I even designed a cool dress to wear in the video. This is Irish dance done my way. Screw perfect technique, this is what Irish dance is all about - doing your best & having fun! I also decided it was about time I wore comfortable shoes while I danced. Those hard shoes always slip and soft shoes squeeze so hard you almost twist your ankle every time you attempt a leap. It was so nice to throw out the parts of Irish dance I'm sick of and embrace the parts I love.

This is my first serious video after quitting my old dance school. I'm so glad I found a way to love Irish dance again. In fact, now that all the sparkly dresses, wigs, tan legs, obsession with perfect technique, and even the annoying shoes are gone, I love Irish dancing like never before. So anyway, I hope you enjoy my video! I had a lot of fun making it. I'll be making a lot more videos in the future so check back for updates and follow me on youtube!
