Parade of Champions
Inspiration For The Irish Dancer
What sets the champions apart? We wanted to find out and share it with you, to inspire you.
For every Irish dancer who makes it to the world championships, there are hundreds of beginners practising their first reel, gently lacing their shoes and dreaming of one day being on that big stage. And for every dancer who makes it to that revered world stage, precious few ever know the thrill of stepping onto the podium.
We have gathered the blood, sweat, and tears of all of the top champions, the dancers who have stood atop the podium, danced in the Parade of Champions, worn the sash, and raised the trophy. We asked them for their secrets, their inspirations, what drives them, and packaged it into a book for every Irish dancer, young or old, beginner or world qualifier, to share some of the inspiration that our champions live by. Their advice will teach you to think like a champion, and help you to reach your goals.
Authors Louise Lenihan TCRG and Elise Wright danced together for over 20 years, competing at an elite level with An Coimisiún le Rincí Gaelacha, and performing around the world.
