Irish Step Dancing

Back at St. Mike's I participate in the Irish Step group called Celtic Knights.  I was sad to have left them this semester since most of my friends and I do it together.  Most of us are beginners and started sometime in a college life so it was kind of sad to be leaving them for a whole semester.  I didn't think I would be dancing at all this semester, but that all changed when I found the BU Dance Group.

I joined a little late into the semester (only 3 weeks) but it was at the right time because they welcomed me right into learning the routine for the Summer Dance Show.  The group is a lot like the Celtic Knights.  Most of the dancers are beginners or never really danced a lot.  One thing we all had in common was that we all wanted to Irish Step Dance.  It was a lot of fun getting to know them and dancing with them each week.  Our teachers knew other dance types too so they added in some ballet to our routine which was fun.

Sadly our time came to an end last weekend when our Summer Dance Show happened.  All the different dance groups that are apart of the BU Dance Group came out to perform.  The show was almost 3 hours long!  It was a lot of fun.  There was Jazz, Ballet, Street, Belly Dancing, Tap, and so much more! It was exciting to watch everyone perform their routines and get to meet even more people!  Irish Step was the final performance and  it was kind of exciting to close the show.

I'm going to miss dancing with them next year.  It was a lot of fun learning new steps and making new friends.   I am really excited for Celtic Knights next year because I was just elected President of the club!!  I have a lot of plans for next year which I'm really excited for!

UPDATE:  I was recently informed we won Dance of the Year!!
