My son’s Spanish teacher asked us to gift her something that is from Ireland and that she could display on a bulletin board of objects from Around the World.
After 30 years together, 8 of them really dancing my feet off…….we part ways. They will be part of a bulletin board display of objects from Around the World! for my son’s Spanish teacher’s classroom.
The bulletin board will be a a permanent display. The teacher wanted something she could keep, and let’s face it, my Riverdancing days are well and truly OVER!
Irish dancing is actually a lot different now than it was in my time. We just wore a white blouse with a navy blue pleated skirt. Now they have wigs, fake tans, crowns, makeup and $2,000 – $3,000+ costumes. Even the socks are specialized and expensive!!! I hate what has happened to it.
Thanks for nothing Michael Flatley!!!
So, after 30 years together, well they were in the attic or a plastic storage container for the majority of those years, my Irish Dancing shoes and I part ways. Hey, could have been worse, I could have given her a leprechaun. He’s still in the storage container though.
