    It's a form of dance which I don't really care to watch, but I enjoy both the music and the percussive beats from the people doing it.

    I remember watching Riverdance as a kid. It was alrite i guess. The noise they made was always the best bit.

    But I was taken to see some other show more recently with Irish dancing in, it was called lord of the dance and it was crap.

    It's alright. A lot of jumping with very little use of arms. Each to their own.

    But not only that it is a part of the Irish tradition and nowadays you can go throughout the world to do irish dancing!!
    I did it until I was about 10 or 11 and I really wish i hada kept it on!:yes:

    oh and another thing a lot of people have ruined it by putting little kids in wigs and putting make up and tan on them in competitions! Its more like a bloody beauty contest now and dresses are something like 3000 pound now or maybe even more!!
    If they hada left it the way it was like years ago with none of that **** it would be a lot better today in my opinion!
