The end of my Irish dance hiatus - coming out of retirement for Oireachtas 2011

\"\"

    -Do it! It’s truly the most fun I’ve had in a while.

    -Ease yourself into it. Irish dance is very specific form of exercise that other type of endurance training can’t necessarily keep you in shape for.

    -Plan. Do you truly have the time to commit to even a modest practice at least once a week? Do you intend to compete again?

    -Check into the rules. Some regulations have changed since I last competed. Do you qualify as an “adult” dancer now?

    -Talk it over with your teacher(s). It always helps to have a supportive crew behind you.

    -Round up some friends to join you! Sure, the more the merrier.

At this point, for thousands of Irish dancers, the competition is merely hours away. Get practicing, best of luck, and most importantly, have fun!
