My 5-year old daughter Clara has wanted to be an Irish dancer since she first saw a performance when she was one. Every year around St. Patrick's Day we would see at least one dance performance, and she would be mesmerized. She couldn't wait until she was 4 and would be old enough for lessons. I did a tiny bit of Irish dancing for fun and exercise when I was an adult, and I always wished that I had begun dancing at a younger age.
Clara dances with Trinity Irish Dancers, and I can't say enough great stuff about Trinity. We've made some friends already who I think will be wonderful friends for a long, long time! Here are a couple favorite photos that I've taken over the past year and wanted to share. I'm a really proud mama for all that she's accomplished this year!
PS: If your child is interested in trying an Irish dance class, feel free to contact me! There is a free class session in mid-May.
