St. Patrick's Day Parade: Accusation

2011 St Pat's Parade 2

There were three or four floats in the parade sponsored by schools of Irish dance, that odd form in which the feet fly and nothing above the hips moves. Lovers of tango are horrified by it. The students are almost all girls and every one of them wears the crazy wig with rows of tight curls, which remind me some of dreadlocks. This young lady must have heard someone go by whistling a Carlos Gardel tune.

Downtown St. Louis 365 is singing Solidarity Forever with Pete Seeger today.

As Denis Leary once said, that style of Riverdance dancing isn't Irish dancing.

It's not just lovers of tango who are horrified when they see that going on....
