If You Want, I Could Dance a Jig

I'm always offering to dance a jig--it's my sure fire way to cheer people up. Sadly, I have no idea how to dance a jig. Once the offer is accepted, I always have to admit that in fact, I have promised things I can't deliver. So I've turned to the internet for help.

www.irelandseye.com says that:
The lighter jig is a faster dance than the jig, slip jig and heavy jig. The double jig is one of the most popular Irish dances. It commences with the rising step, one of the first steps taught to beginners. The right foot is lifted about 12 inches off the floor, the person hops on the left, while the right is lowered to tap the floor and then each foot in turn is lifted and lowered. This action is repeated three times to one bar of music.


If you could see me trying this at home, you'd laugh.

BTW-A blog is the perfect forum for Performing Dog, is it not? I envy your blog. You are making me want to have a blog.

I totally think of it as performing dog--in fact, I almost called it The Performing Dog.

I've got some sister drama to deal with tonight, but I'd love to talk. Maybe after that? How late is too late to call?
