Great Job to all our dancers last weekend at the Boise Festival of Trees!!!

Dance shows are a hype thing nowadays it seems, and while looking for interesting stuff I found this reality doc about Irish Dance Championships. I’m sharing this with you because I really think that Irish Dance is a very special style of dancing, not only does it reflects tradition and it’s a cultural statement but it also brings joy and energy to anyone who watches it. 171 more words
I (re)encountered performance studies scholar Richard Schechner this week. Earlier this semester I read his “Collective Reflexivity: Restoration of Behavior” in my Introduction to Folklore class, and this week I read chapter two of his Performance Studies textbook in my Ethnographies of Dance class. 483 more words
I’ve been studying and LOVING Irish dance this semester. Even though it’s difficult and physically draining, I freaking love it anyway. It has always been a dream of mine to study Irish dance, but because it’s not a typical part of a traditional dance studio curriculum, I never really knew how to get started with it growing up. 268 more words
