  1. My 3 year old nephew loves this! And I pretend not to as he watches sitting on my lap while I que the video. Cape Town, South Africa

  2. I think that the hairstyle of the girls that have their hair pulled up and back on top of their heads looks very nice. I like that better.

  3. I'm 29 and I've been dancing 3 years I grew up watching Sesame Street… we don't get it here any more though which SUCKS!

  4. Interesting that the shoe that the characters are holding during the introduction is a Sansha brand shoe and not a true Irish ghillie! But so nice to see Irish dancing making into the mainstream.

  5. This is all very well but check out "Emma O'Sullivan Irish Sean Nos Dancer" for the proper traditional folk style of dancing. It's a lot less uptight and more natural and sensuous.

  6. Stop trying to teach our kids Spanish, if i want my kid to know Spanish ill move to Mexico. And that aint happening.

  7. Really? You're telling a television programm to stop teaching your kid Spanish? Ever tried to turn of your television or maybe let your kid decide himself what he finds interesting?

  8. Sorry, to the person who was talking about Emma o Sullivan… Emma o Sullivan dances in the Sean nos style of dancing, which is a very old style dance which originated in Connemara, Ireland. Irish dancing is a totally different style of dancing. The reason I know this is because I have danced both styles as I am from Ireland, and there is no comparing them.

  9. This is so cool! Maybe Zoe should have been in this too!

    The history of Irish step dance is vague, however it can be dated back to the Druids and early Celts in 400 AD.

  10. I am fairly certain that the dance school is the Inishfree School of Irish Dance. They have schools through out the U.S.

  11. If your a irish dancer and you don't remember the reel i will help you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!¡!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Point hop back point hop back knee two three four five six seven point hop back point hop back knee two three and point hop back
