Anne Neilson Jig: The Great Irish Dance-Off (24) RE: Jig: The Great Irish Dance-Off 02 Sep 11


Very well-made programme, with superb photography. The passion and the pressure is all there, together with some real characters -- a smashing wee lassie from Derry who was wise beyond her years (I'm told she was first this year!); a super wee boy who still slept with his soft toys but who could leap and fling and twirl with the best of them; teachers demonstrating a very 'tough love' approach; parents who made tremendous sacrifices to pursue the dream...
And the dreadful costumes and wigs!!! (Including diamante sparkles on the white socks...)

It certainly raises some questions about motivations, but there's always the astonishing dancing to divert you.
