The Flying Irish did a great job for an audience of over 70 people! There were so many dancers of  a variety of ages, and each dance was unique! The dancers were all so talented, and the crowd especially loved the rhythm of the hardshoe jigs. For many parents, it was a great way to introduce their children to the art of Irish Dance; kids loved seeing the dancers leaping across the stage. Everyone had a nice time, and it was a fun way to kick-off the St. Patrick's Day weekend. We would love to have the Flying Irish perform again!
