daily quotes :
A little thought about what your children learn from being involved in Irish Dancing!
Those outside Irish Dancing often ask "Why do you pay so much money for your kids to do dance?"
But one parent was quick to reply "it's not just the dancing I pay for".....
- I pay for those moments when my kids become so tired they want to
quit but don't.
- I pay for those days when my kids come home from school and are "too tired" to go to their practice but go anyway.
- I pay for my kids to learn to be disciplined.
- I pay for my kids to learn to take care of their body.
- I pay for my kids to learn to work with others and to be good team mates.
- I pay for my kids to learn to deal with disappointment, when they go to competitions but don't get that result they'd hoped for, but still have to work hard in their preparation
- I pay for my kids to learn to make and accomplish goals.
- I pay for my kids to learn that it takes hours and hours and hours and hours of hard work and practice to create a champion, and that success does not happen overnight.
- I pay for the opportunity my kids have and will have to make life-long friendships.
- I pay so that my kids are not sat in front of a screen...
...I could go on but, to be short, I don't pay for Irish Dancing, I pay for the opportunities that
have come from purchasing those first pair of pumps, and how this now provides my kids with to develop attributes that will serve them well throughout their lives and give them the opportunity to bless the lives of others. From what I have seen so far I think
it is a great investment!
