Irish Dance

I took my first Irish dance lesson today. I arrived at the studio way too early since I had no idea how long it would take to get there. I ended up being the only student there, since the other two wouldn't be able to make it in time. The lesson was 45 minutes long but let me tell you, Irish Dancing it quite a workout. The instructor said she loved the way my feet arched. In Irish Dance, one's feet must point outwards. Of course I do need to work on the left foot pointing out, but she said I was very good for a beginner. She did ask me if I'd done Irish Dancing before, to which I replied I had never had any dance training but I'd seen Riverdance. She laughed at that one. The good thing about being the only student was the one on one teaching. I do need to work on the flexibility though. Another thing she liked about my dancing was the fact I continued on when I missed a step. She said that wasn't something you can teach. After the lesson, she commented me on my ear for rhythm and my coordination. I'll defenatly be going back for more lessons, especially since I was told by one of my coworkers I had to dance for them at the Christmas party

Until next time
