Irish Folk Dancing

Resource: Phyllis Weikart, Teaching Movement and Dance

Song: Rakes of Mallow

This is an Irish Dance we did the week before St.Patricks day. We talked briefly about Ireland and the origins of St.Patrick’s day and I showed them a couple videos of Irish Dancing before we learned this traditional folk dance.

Yes, the boys are playing with invisible light sabers, and they were being a little silly this day. Not their best video, but sometimes you just have to let kids be kids. At least we were enjoying ourselves and they did a good job at keeping on the steady beat!
