A Family That Dances Together

I am a traditionalist at heart. I love traditional music and traditional Irish Dancing, Step-Dancing and Ceilidh. I know it will horrify some people but I am not a fan of Feis Dancing with all those wigs, make-up, false-tan. In my opinion, it is more about a beauty pageant than what is traditionally Irish. But it is my opinion…

It seems that in every country in the world there are Irish Dancing classes and teams and competitions. This picture is one I found from Siberia, in Russia.

Dance Before Mass – The picture below is an interpretation of what is known as a ‘Hooley’ – This is one reason why the church suppressed House Ceilidhs, because the people would go to a dance quicker than they would go to Mass? What has changed in Ireland?

    I too like the traditional dance. It’s just me but I don’t really enjoy the ultra modern way of dancing, especially with non-Irish music. It’s just not the same. Great photos!
