Ok, just like I said for the same post in highland, I prefer to dance than watch. However, I love watching the Hornpipe the best. There are so many different steps that are actually done! Also, it looks really cool to have a group up dancing different steps. Like a crew of sailors at work! :)

I think Earl if my favorite to watch because it looks so difficult. However I also really like Blue Bonnets because I think it really goes well with the music.

Jig and Hornpipe are fun to watch, but I think Blue Bonnets is just so pretty...

The blue bonnets is just so beautiful! I like how it can be energetic and graceful at the same time (I also live to dance it). I also love to watch the jig, as it is such a hilarious dance and a huge crowd pleaser!

If they are danced right, most of those dances are a pleasure to watch. But then chances are if you are good enough to dance those right, then of course we would be watching.

That said, it is always a pleasure to watch a Jig. When it is done correct, it is amazing to watch. I always make young students watch older dancers jigs, 1 because they learn from watching and 2 because it always enspires them to try out the jig.

I would chose the jig, just becasue I LOVE it when the guys do it because they look so awesome swinging their sticks, and those jig shoes are a nice change of pace too, I think the jig had so many cool steps to.

I love watching the jig. I really like the costumes and shoes, and the way the guys swing the stick around. It's a fun dance to watch.

Can't decide between Jig and Bluebonnets. I'm leaning towards Jig, though; I love watching the shuffles..

I love watching the Blue Bonnets! However, the Jig is also really fun to watch! There are so many different steps, as well as the intense facial expressions, which makes each Jig look different from another!

I've always loved watching the Irish Jig, mainly because of the various introductions to the dance and varieties of steps danced. My Granny loves the Scottish Lilt, lol!

It depends whos dancing it, and how well its danced lol! But I love to watch the Strathspey, Swords and hornpipes if they are danced really well. The Strathspeys were good to watch at Cowal last year with all the energy in the last highcutting steps.
