Hand Dancing

Way back when I was a teenager in the ’90’s, there was a popular trend for traditional Irish dancing. The Irish dance craze led to the creation of performances, such as River Dance and Lord of the Dance.  I went to see Lord of the Dance. It was impressive, but left me wondering how people would continue to make Irish dancing interesting and relevant, which leads me to our video for the day – We Speak No Americano by Yolanda Be Cool featuring Suzanne Cleary and Peter Harding.

Cleary and Harding are professional Irish dancers and  the founders of Up & Over It! They take your standard Irish dancing and mix it with other styles of dance and music.  Sometimes, they dance with their hands instead of their feet as you will see!
