Today is my danciversary! Four years ago today I decided to start Irish Dance classes again in a new city where I knew no one and had zero friends.
I had danced briefly as a kid, but hardly practiced and thought it was dorky so I quit before I could ever make it out of Beginners.
Today, I’ve been competing for 2 years and am THIS close to making prelims - just need elusive firsts in HP and TJ. This weekend is my final feis of the year and I’m hoping my hard work will finally pay off.
From having zero friends in Houston to some of my closest being those I’ve met in dance - I thank my lucky stars for making that decision four years ago.
