Dance teacher, Cormac O’Sé, remarked of student Megan, “She is one of the hardest working [students]. There is not a day she comes to class and it’s everything she can do…she always brings everything she has to offer that day.” What things in your life do you put everything you’ve got, your full effort into? What things do you just do because you have to? Are there things you would like to put more effort into? How do the artists use their art as a way of connecting with people? What is the most beautiful thing about this kind of art?

Talyor talked about how Irish dancing is about being in tune with the music, how it is considered percussion, and how she likes telling people, “Yes, I play an instrument, but I play it with my feet.” Choose a song you like, listen to it and add some percussion using only your feet.
