Just wanted to share that after almost six months Bethany is irish dancing again! .... only for 45min in the lunch hour at school and she isn't going to be competing again or anything, but it was so lovely to see her dancing again at home that I had to choke back the tears (soppy I know).

That's wonderful news! I was just thinking about you and Bethany the other day, and wondering if she'd found another type of dance or if she might rediscover Irish some day. Good on her, and welcome back (to both of you)! :)

awww I am so excited to hear she is back in dance-!!! Maybe when she is a little older she will want to go compete again. But she is such a brilliant dancer it's just good to know she is dancing.!

as a dancer who just returned to classes I can honestly say it's in our blood. It's something that will never leave you.

Good to hear this Gemma..I don't know how you coped with her not dancing. You both seemed to enjoy it so much. I don't know how many times we sent link of idea you had or tip or a funny antedote to other dancers and mums.

It must be fun for her to be able to dance in the middle of the school day !!

don't be such a stranger

That is wonderful. From reading your previous posts over the last year or so Bethany seemed to be progressing in leaps and bounds and always enjoyed seeing her dresses, and I particularly remember a photomontage of her you did from age 1 I think to 6 which was fabulous. Didnt realise she had given up, that must have been hard on ye.

Gemma, your post put a big smile on my face! I agree, once you're passionate about Irish dancing, it never leave you. Even if she doesn't compete, I hope she'll stay involved in some way, such as joining her school/pals for dance events. St. Patrick's Day is coming up and my dd, although retired from competition, is really looking forward to dancing with her friends for fun. That's what it's all about - for me anyway :)

As a MAID myself, I really felt for you when Bethany quit. Made me wonder how I would feel if my dd quit as it has been such a huge part of our lives. I know that life goes on, but I am happy to hear your dd is dancing again. :)

That's great! I think everyone should give ID a try, even if you've stopped. I agree- you can take the girl out of dance, but you can't take dance out of the girl!

I quit Irish several years ago and I still miss it, still frequent this board and still find myself practising steps at home. It truly never, ever leaves you.

I'm so happy for you both that she's dancing again, competing or otherwise. Good for her!

AND! to be totally honest... Like I said I am thrilled that Beth is back dancing- but these boards are just not the same with out BethanysMAID hanging around- I think I speak for a fair amount of DDNers when I say It is nice having you back as well!

Indeed! You definitely were missed, especially the adorable doll outfits/videos/etc. :)

Glad to hear Bethany is dancing again.
