The Spirit of Irish Dance

Good Friday Morning! Dan Wells writing, I hope this note finds you well and in good spirits!

Saint Patrick's Day was celebrated across the Tri-State on Thursday, with music, dancing and mixed with memories and pride.

Out of all the fun, I wanted to write this morning about how much I enjoyed the McGing Irish Dancers.

What a skill and talent!

The McGing School of Irish Dance has been in existence for 28 years. From its humble beginnings with 28 dancers, the school has established a rich history in the city of Cincinnati and is widely recognized around the world.

These dancers have performed in Hollywood for the late great Gene Kelly, danced in the Soviet Union, and toured with the Cincinnati Pops. Plus they rocked "The Pub" in Rookwood yesterday!

If you didn't know another important part of this irish dancing is the competing.

McGing dancers have a reputation of exuberating grace and power at the same time. These qualities propel them to be champions in Local, Regional, National and World Irish dance competitions.

Regardless of the reason these girls and guys dance...I love the art and passion of Irish dance, in my opinion it's one best things about St Patrick's Day.

Have a great weekend!
