Video: Irish Dance Christmas Jig

12.25.11

Every year my family has a Christmas tradition of putting on a talent show for each other at the annual Christmas Eve party. I've tried Irish dancing for the program before, but there wasn't much space so most of the time I sing instead. This year I decided to try something different. I choreographed a light and hard shoe dance, performed it at the studio and recorded it on video. I then edited it all together an showed the video to my family on Christmas Eve.

It was a lot of fun to make and I plan to post more videos of myself Irish dancing on this blog in the future. So here's the final video that I showed at the Christmas party. Enjoy!
