How to Do an Irish Jig

The light jig is the simplest and fastest of the Irish jigs. This elegant dance is also the easiest to learn. The standard step for the Irish jig is called a rising step, or the rise and grind. It's also useful for the dancer to know the side step for this dance.

Irish Dance...the reel, the jig..the slipjig...love them all

The Irish Jig is a Scottish caricature of an Irish person, gesturing angrily and frowning, and also a tribute to Irish stepdancing. It is based on traditional Irish steps but with arm movements added. The Scottish version of the Irish Jig is meant to parody an angry Irish washerwoman when she finds out some neighbourhood boys have knocked all her clean washing to the ground.

Love this....the oldies but goodies showing them how to get it done. (Irish Jig at a wedding)
