The best part of Irish dance is when you realize how something feels when you do it right. Like, the first time your heels actually collided while doing a click. Yeah, your upper body was a mess and your legs weren’t straight and god only knows what your arms were doing, but your heels actually colliding? That was magical and its that feeling of magic that we all chase in Irish dance
The bad news: I have a health condition that has affected my dancing (and daily life) for the past year.
The good news: I now know what the problem is and how to help it. The condition itself isn’t bad and is actually not uncommon, but I do have a significant case of it. I’ve been in such severe pain for so long that I’m excited to just feel normal again. This pain has been keeping me from improving past a certain point in my dancing, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to push through that wall. Relieving this pain won’t make me a better dancer, but I’ll be able to work a lot harder as I recover.
This will be my last year competing, and I’m determined to make it my best!
