One of the studios where I teach hosted a recital this week. My adult Irish hard shoe students did a bang-up job (pun entirely intended). I don’t think I could be more proud of how far they progressed this semester. Some in the class had tap dance experience, or had done some Irish dance in the past. Others were only in their first or second semester of Irish dance ever, and yet they were able to pull this routine together nicely. They really are good.
