A Tribute to Feis Dads, Father’s Day 2014

dadsAs I drove home from the Indianapolis Feis, I thought it was about time to write another blog post for my Antonio Pacelli blogging gig. What better than to write a small tribute to the Feis Dad’s out there on their weekend, and why not post it on AP so it can reach a wider audience. Even though the whole world isn’t having Father’s Day this weekend, it is still appropriate since Feis Dad is a 24/7/365 kind of thing.

So, without further ado, go read my Tribute to Irish Dance Dads. And Dads, thanks for all you do and Happy Father’s Day! read more

Maybe this should be called ‘A Parents Guide to Helping Their Dancer Understand Why.’ Read the entire article over on Antonio Pacelli and let me know what you think.

I am blogging for Antonio Pacelli, go figure….

A number of months ago, Antonio Pacelli contacted me about blogging for them. To be honest, I had no idea who Antonio Pacelli was and thought it was a hoax, I mean, what does an Italian man know about Irish dance?

After a bit of research I found it was indeed not a hoax, and Antonio (Tony to his friends), knows quite a bit about Irish dance, so I accepted the invitation.

Well today, my first blog posts have been published with the release of their newly redesigned website. So, if you want to find WTF on AP, to to the Feis Dad Blog. read more
