World Champion Irish Dancer Performs For Primary Children

The primary children were spoilt on Wednesday 13th March, when an amazing Irish dancer ‘Victoria Taylor’ performed a soft and hard dance.

TAP4All the primary children congregated in the hall, carrying handmade Ireland flags and green, white and gold balloons. When Victoria started to dance there was electric in the room, everyone was quiet as mice and watched her elegantly float and fly around the room – it was beautiful.

The second dance was not so quiet! Victoria was wearing her hard shoes, which have plates of metal attached to them. We all watched in anticipation for Victoria to start, then after a long introduction ‘BANG’ she jumped and threw her feet to the floor, everyone in the room jumped as the sound of the metal hitting the floor roared around the room.

TAP2Victoria is an inspiration to us all, she has been dancing since she was 7 years old. She found Irish dancing very difficult when she started, always falling down, bruises on her legs, but she always got up and tried again. Just like children at Wilson Stuart they also don’t give up! 10 years later Victoria is ‘the best in the world’ Winning the world championships at the age of 15, a title she justly deserves.

TAP2Even the people who are the best at something in the world, started at the beginning and had to overcome obstacles. If you work hard like Victoria and don’t give up when things get tough, you may also be the best! – What could you be the best at?
