'Tis the Irish Season

The children are a quarter Irish (on daddy's side.)

 Early on in our homeschool journey we found Irish Step Dancing. Adriana has been dancing for four year. 

James and his dance partner and friend, Greta
This is James' second year dancing.  
Most likely Thomas will begin dancing next year. It is a lot of fun and daddy dances around the house with them.

James and Thomas with some friends. 
This is our dance season. We have a number of shows thought the year but most come around St. Patrick's day. We had 6 shows in two and half weeks. On top of the shows we add extra Irish Step classes to get ready for the shows.

Last night was our last show. It was a great season.

As always thank you Kathy and the Irish Rhythm School.

Thank you ladies!! Dianne - Irish Step is so much fun! Sissy I am glad you enjoyed the post. Cari - it was fun!

That is a great activity for kids. I'm a big advocate of getting kids moving and this fits the bill perfectly. The fact that they obviously enjoy it too just makes it that much better

I've always found the Irish Step Dance fascinating! Your kids look so lovely in their costumes, and they did such a good job :)

Adrianne Niall said...

Kathy - Yes they so enjoy Irish Step plus Daddy enjoys it to so the whole family has fun!
Tarana - Thank you.

My goddaughter also does Irish dancing---her mom was a ballet dancer but wanted a more wholesome (read: less stressful) dance experience for her daughters. Looks like so much fun!

I would really never guess they're that much Irish. Great dancing!
