Awesome things about Irish dance:

- Going out for lunch after dance outs
- Sleep-overs after feises
- Hanging out with your dance friends
- Meeting awesome people at feises
- Meeting people from all over the world at majors
- When your teacher smiles at you, or says “good job”
- When you really start noticing improvements
- Finally hitting that move that you couldn’t do before
- Coming off stage and knowing you nailed it
- When you meet/exceed your goals
- Sweating and sore muscles after practice (you know you worked hard)
- Knowing that you can do something that amazes people
- On St. Patrick’s day when you’re in your wig and team jacket, and a random stranger asks you if you’re an Irish dancer, and you proudly say “yes!”
- Jumping up and down with your team mates after dancing a figure
- Getting to see new parts of your country while traveling to competitions
- The feeling of flying when you hit a leap just right

I know I promised I would post pictures this weekend but these past few days have been pretty hectic I’m sorry! But here is my new dress finally for those that asked to see full pictures of it. It is a pretty bright blue in person, the pictures don’t really show the true color of it but close enough haha. Oh, and of course I had to mirror selfie in it 💁
