The future of Irish Dancing in Sydney

Posted by Picasa

The 3, 4 & 5 Years have just taken to the stage

They are so small and delicate, the hall (which is packed with people standing in all available spaces) is also completely quiet because they make so little sound.  Every group that finished gets a big round of applause and all the dancers have beaming smiles on their faces.

These dancers are the future of Irish Dancing in Sydney.

More beginners!!

Seniors set dances about to get underway

The hall is now quiet - mainly because there are so few people here to see the seniors dance.  What a missed opportunity, these dancers are at the pinacle of their form and younger dancers seeing them would have something to which they could aspire.....maybe another time?

Hard shoe round is over

Search parties are being sent out to find them for the soft shoe round....

17 Years & over age groups are now dancing

They are doing their hard shoe steps - various aged groups as noted in an earlier post :)
