A sport, yes, sport, that has small competitions call feisanna, regional competitions called Oireachtas, and National competitions, called Nationals. At Oireachtas and Nationals, you can qualify for Worlds, which is every dancer's dream. Also, it includes massive amounts of sparkles and lots and lots of money on dresses made my Gavin and Siopa. Great exercise!

a competitive sport and art form that is sometimes referred to as a jig or a leperchaun dance. Some think of it as a joke but dancers are serious athletes who train all year round.

To empty ones bank account through the wonderful world of mutant sized Shirley Temple wigs, sparkly $3,000 dresses and oh yeah ... some dancing too.
Irish Dance will be the death of me, I'm on my second mortgage because my daughter needed yet another Gavin!

Irish Dance is an incredibly hard sport that requires an insane amount of physical strength, stamina and technique. Most people don't know what is really is, they hear the name "Irish Dance" and think it is funny and easy and stupid. This is bull, people have no clue what this sport is and how hard it is. In irish dance you need to need to have incredible calf and leg and ab muscles and stamina so you can have good jumps and lifts and can stay on your toes. It is very technical and you need to be foot perfect, you need to use your calf muscles and abs to good lift and stay on ur toes and always have good rythym . If you want to be good, you have to practice and workout every single day. Those hockey boys who say they know what it is and that its easy, they have no idea they couldnt last through 1 second of it. Beyond all the makeup and dresses is THE HARDEST SPORT EVER SO IF YOU HAVENT ACTUALLY SEEN IRISH DANCE OR TRIED IT SHUT YOU DUMBASS MOUTH UP.
