When your student loves her Irish dance school so much that she asks her mom for a PIDA themed cake!? What an amazing complement as a teacher.
🎂
Moments like these affirm why we love teaching Irish dance. It’s about so much more than teaching batters and points - the batters and points are the physical manifestation of the joy we strive to share. They’re the chosen media through which we spread art and love.
☘️
Happy 13th birthday, Anna; May you have many, many more!!!



Also...shout out to her mom for pulling off an amazing cake!!!

Although it was a very different St. Patrick’s Day than most of us Irish dancers are used to, PIDA dancers across the city found ways to celebrate the joy of Irish dancing!
From neighborhood parades, to sidewalk steps like this video one of our dancers sent us, St. Patrick’s Day has a special charm - no matter what the circumstances. ☘️ 🔥 🍀

Reminder for Irish dance athletes everywhere! St. Patrick’s Day season is a marathon!
This advice is good for everyone though 😉
——————————
Take care of your body so you can give it all you’ve got in every performance. 🍀☘️🍀
——————————
🥦 Nourish: eat lots of protein, healthy fats, and dense carbohydrates (broccoli is a carb too!) to fuel you through practices and shows
🧊 Hydrate: Drink lots of water or tea to keep your muscles loose and your body hydrated, especially after all the sweating you’re doing!
🌱 Stretch: Low impact stretching and Pilates can lengthen your muscles and loosen built up tension, preventing the ever-so-common post-show-season injuries!
💤 Sleep: Time management is the key to managing your homework, jobs, and practices and still get at least 7-8 hours of shuteye every night! Your body does the majority of it’s healing and repair while sleeping. 😴

A dancer is an extension of the music, and their movements and their feet are the instrument.

A major “to do” for me this month is to dance. It has been my deepest desire to take lessons, and 2020 will be my year.

Share in the comments your life long passion.
I’m ready to dance into this year 💃

#oireachtascountdown
It’s that time of the season where it’s easy to start doubting yourself; Don’t give up and give in to the fear of not reaching your goals! The most important goal to have is to be honest with yourself - if you’re honest with yourself and you dance your heart out, then first or last place aside, you will dance beautifully!!

If you want to be great, never stop learning. Coaches as well as athletes are the students of gymnastics. We’re all on a learning journey. Apart from those too arrogant to believe they can gain anything from a book, a course, a conference or mentor. Sadly, the gymnastics world has many that reflect this kind of mindset, and hypocritically, they are often the ones that point the finger to others who they claim to be arrogant 🤦🏻‍♂️
