I have always been a 'You Might Be a Redneck' fan and I realize rednecks aren't the only ones with tell-tale signs. So, without further ado, a list of signs you might be an Irish Dance Parent.

  • If the only time you polish shoes is for your childs dance…
  • If you have ever said the words ‘no, not quite like Riverdance’…
  • If you know Siopa and Gavin are not an Irish soap opera couple…
  • If your new car has 30,000 miles on it and you only live 5 miles from work…
  • If you know who Kevinah, Brogan or Julia are, without hearing their last names…
  • If your Facebook, Twitter, or any other avatar has a dancer,  curly wig, solo dress or dance shoes in it…
  • If you can pronounce feis, ceili or Oireachtas correctly…
  • If you know what a feis, ceili or Oireachtas is, even if you can’t pronounce it...
  • If you have 5 different types of tape available in your purse or car and they are all meant to be used on the feet…
  • If you know a Zuca is not a fruity malt beverage…
  • If your St Patrick’s Day will have more driving (between performances) than drinking…
  • If you know months in advance EXACTLY what you will be doing on Thanksgiving, and it does not involve family or turkey… (this applies mostly to Mid America and Mid Atlantic parents, oh, and judges)
  • If your son has a vest and you don’t…
  • If you carry a glue gun and spare crystals in your purse…
  • If you know heavies and lights have nothing to do with weight…
  • If you have more ‘sock’ than ‘Elmer’s’ in your house, and understand that reference…
  • If your daughter has a dress that cost more than your wedding dress…
  • If glitter or crystals make it better…

...you are no doubt an Irish Dance parent. There is no 'might' about it wink

So, what did I miss?

You might be an Irish dance parent... if the glove box of your car is filled with 'spares' - everything from pins, socks and half empty fake tan lotion to old copies of IDM.

I don't think anything in the glove box of MY car is actually mine.

'Excellent service...we changed the shoes 3 times but nothing was a problem for the staff who sent the last pair by special delivery as we had a competition the next day.'
