Hi, I'm Katie Van Horn. I'm a U18 World Recaller and I love to dance. As the great Leslie Knope once said, "Winning is every girl's dream, but it's my destiny."   



Reasons why you should never judge someone for crying at any time during a dance competition:

theirishdancingdiaries:

1. It’s stressful.

2. There could be an injury involved.

3. The tears could possibly be tears of joy.

4. They could be angry tears because they worked so hard and something out of their control messed them up.

5. It could be their last dance competition, or a friend’s last dance competition.

6. Maybe they wish their mom was there. You don’t know how many times I cried during the 2012 All Irelands because my mom wasn’t there.

THIS POST IS SO OLD WHY IS IT STILL BEING REBLOGGED

What made you want to start the ID4ID project?

The Irish Dancing Diaries... answered:

It’s always my goal on this blog to provide the irish dance community with what they need. Previously, what everyone needed was inspiration to be the best they could be, so I tried my best to provide that. These days though, I think there’s plenty of that type of motivation going around. What the irish dance world needs now is inspiration to discover and embrace individuality, which hardly anyone seems to be advocating. I want the same revolution of self-expression and self-acceptance that has been sweeping the real world to sweep the irish dance world, so when I discovered Carol Rosetti’s project I decided to use the same idea to inspire dancers to embrace their individuality and stop judging others for making unique look choices.
