Robbie Burns night, also a celebration of dance

Last night, five young Highland dancers and three Irish step dancers performed on a thin wood flooring (on a cement foundation – ouch!). We Scottish Country dancers had an easier time of it. In the small Irish dance group, there were two national champions – and all qualified for the world competition in Dublin this year. They all had amazing ankle and knee flexibility, and how they dance on their toes without a wood block, is a virtual mystery to me.
