To Dance or not To Dance..

One of the most popular questions we get asked when a parent is deciding to send their child to us is ‘do you do competitions?’

This is a question that we always proceed to answer with caution.  The reason is no matter what answer we give, someone won’t like it.  Either the parent hates the thought of competition or they really want their child to experience it.  So you see our dilemma?

Lil’ Legends Year of 2012

Can you actually believe 2012 has been and gone and we’re now into the year of the highly anticipated City of Culture for LegenDerry??
I cant! I remember New Years Eve 2011 like it was yesterday!
2012 was a year to remember for our Irish Dancing School and all our lil’ legends.

One of the best highlights of the year for us as teachers was when some of our lil’ legends participated in their first ever feis at the Evans Charity Feis in St Peters High school. We were probably more nervous than the children! We were beaming with pride at the fact they got on stage to perform and did their very best! But then they brought home some bling to show off which was a bonus!

Legenderry ‘Street Dance’ with Pineapple Dance

So I know were quite bad at keeping up to date with the blog but the weeks fly by so fast!!

Latest craic is that we attended a Street Dance Workshop recently with Supermalcolm & Kashmir Leese from Pineapple Dance Studios.  Apart from being nearly the oldest there (shout out to Ailish lol ) and not being able to move our arms as obviously Irish Dancers dont know what to do with their arms apart from keep ’em straight, it was actually quite amazing!!  Loved the music, the atmosphere, the routines, everything about it was brilliant and just what LegenDerry needs!  Would be great if the city could get more workshops like this so big thanks to Wendy at Dolphin Dance School for organising these workshops. Honestly couldnt feel my stomach and thighs for about 4 days afterwards so was definitely a good workout!
