March Dance Challenge 3 – Riverdance

Video

As I said yesterday, I am going to be posting all sorts of different styles of dance from everywhere. I had great fun last night choosing all the videos, in fact I could carry this challenge on for another month there are so many pieces of dance I love! And all the pieces hold something special for me, like today’s.

This is the original footage from the Eurovision contest in 1994, where in the interval the world was blown away by this new kind of Irish stroke tap style. I was just glued to the TV.

It is also special to me because for sixteen years I ran a adults tap class, and I taught them this dance and they performed it with pride and excitement in front of a theatre audience. It’s the dance that everyone wants to have a go at, so I have taught it many times. I love dancing it because the music is so exhilarating and it’s a real cardio workout, you don’t need to go to the gym if you do this dance once a day!

So I hope you enjoy it as much as I do X
