Just cause I was on youtube and I am sure everyone on my flist knows of James posting vids on youtube so I won't go into that. But I was on the site just looking around and had an idea. I decided to search for some videos of an Irish Feis. I found this cute little boy performing the beginners reel and I had to laugh as it was the reel I learned as an adult. I didn't do dancing as a kid because unlike my sisters who started dancing here in LA with an awesome sweet teacher. When I was old enough to start learning we had moved to Ventura County and while the teacher was an excellent teacher who taught many champion dancers, she had no patience for teaching children. So since my mother was never a stage mother, when I said I wasn't having fun and wanted to quit I was allowed to quit. So while I regret never learning Irish dance, I'm always glad to not have been forced to take lessons in that environment. I have taken some classes as an adult. And I learned a reel, jig and slip jig.

So here's the reel performed by a cute little boy.


I couldn't find a novice light jig or slip jig that looked like the one I learned. Oh well. Hmm...looking at all that dancing brings back memories of the time when my sisters danced and the kids didn't wear curled wigs and gaudy dresses. I miss those times.
