My first traditional set ever: St. Patrick's Day dance at #milanfeis2018.
But this video is just my excuse to express what I feel while dancing.
I am 31, I followed my first #Irishdance lesson ever at 28. For a year I drove 200km each Thursday just to follow the lessons at @gensdys academy in #Milan.
Why did I do it?
When the academy offered us, adult dancers, the possibility to compete in a #feis, I agreed with enthusiasm. But not for the sake of medals, no, this was not the first reason.
Why did I do it?
I did all of it because I love #Irishdancing, yes, sure. But first of all I did it because I love all the people I have the luck to dance with.
Friends are the family you choose for yourself, they say.
And I really love my #dancingfamily!
What is best of our lessons, competitions, reharsals, training, recitals is the lovely people I met thanks to dance.
My academy is different, I would say quoting an old adv 😂
It's not just lessons and competitions, but it's mainly about having fun together, travelling, meeting new friends at dancing evenings, sharing a passion, really caring about each other.
It happens frequently that we meet new people at the academy events, and they instantly become a full part of our group. As it happened to me when I first set foot in the studio, shy at the beginning, now feeling at home.
We really live the way #Yeats stated:
🔖"There are no strangers here, only friends you haven't yet met"🔖 I love indeed this way of life and the people I share it with. I would not change this for anything in the world! .
