My group, the St. Paul Irish Dancers, are on our last leg of dancing and looking forward to St. Patrick’s Day. We are dancing tired now. There are flecks of glitter make-up all over our gear. We have lost our composure backstage. We just keep laughing as it’s one-more-time that we are crammed into stage left or stage right. It might be a school kitchen that we come bounding out of or a professional stage but there is nothing like the anticipation of performing on St. Patrick’s Day. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
