Since my last post in March, I wanted to give a quick update! At my fourth feis in June I moved my first dance, Reel into Prizewinner! Then at my last feis I moved Treble Jig and Slip Jig into Prizewinner as well!!! Light and Single Jig are still in Novice and my dreaded Hornpipe is still in Beginner 2 :( My biggest goal right now is to move that Hornpipe up to novice and then to Prizewinner!!!
So there is my quick update! :D

I thought of a great idea for all of us diddlyiers to connect and help eachother with our dancing
Everyone that is an Irish Dancers that has a video camera you should tape yourself dancing so that others can critique. I know many people have already done it, including myself but we havnt seen many videos that people want critqued lately! So everyone if you can make a video!

I need anyones opinion! I am trying to decide between 2 things:
1. Getting a new wig and selling my old one
2. Fixing up the curls with curl spray on the old on and keep it for a while

COMERFORD IS AWESOME!
i did the dance camp today and i haven't been to comerford in 2 years and it was a blast and the co-teacher Kelly Naegen even remembered my name! We learned a couple 8hand things and it was so cool!
Wednesday we learned a new reel and treble jig steps.
Anyone else have awesome experiences at camps or workshops?
