Happy Saint Patrick‚Äôs Day
Saint Patrick‚Äôs Day always reminds me of Irish Dancers, young girls with their hair full of curls and their beautifully embellished dresses. One of my past employers would hire the local Irish dance school to come in on Saint Patrick‚Äôs Day and dance in the cafeteria during lunch. It was always so much fun to watch – and you couldn‚Äôt help but leave with a little bounce in your step and a smile on your face.
I was always so impressed with their dresses, all the kick pleats, appliqu√©s, rhinestones, and embroidery done in satin and velvet. One year I spoke with one of the dancers after the performance.¬† She said that most of the solo dresses are one of a kind and are very expensive. ¬† Each one is made to order to fit the girls‚Äô personalities and tastes.
I hope you enjoy your Saint Patrick‚Äôs day and have an opportunity to watch some Traditional Irish dancing. It is sure to put a smile on your face and a bounce in your step.
