The Belmont mom thinks the ban is, in part, a response to step dancing’s increased intensity that rivals playing on a club soccer team or dancing at Boston Ballet school.

“‘This cult’ my husband likes to call it,” she said. “It’s not a 3-month-a-year or a 6-month-a-year sport. It’s year round. You have to be fit. You have to be cross trained.”

It appears that the jury is still out on whether the makeup ban is really all that is wrong within the Irish dancing world.
