Every year that I dance, I keep wondering: how much longer? Can I keep doing this? Can I keep my body healthy and strong so that I can keep doing the thing I love?

This lady proves to me that I can. I'm flabbergasted. And I also have got to hit the weights; that seems to be key:

Why did the ND/SMU team compete as adults? When I was in college, I competed as a senior...just seems like they probably would have had a shot at winning the senior ceili since they're all still within that age range.

Can a dancer who danced as a juvenile go to adult categories, and then if successful drop down to and overs. I'm talking about age 20 who hasn't danced or competed in about 3 years.

The first day of the new year... and 50 days until the ceili club competition in Killarney at All Irelands. And we're hoping you might be able to help us get there.

To help defray some of the cost of sending our ladies to the All Irelands, the Culkin Adult Irish Dancers have created a 2010 calendar and notecards available for purchase online. $5 from the sale of each calendar will help us get to Killarney and back.

Check out the calendar and cards at http://www.cafepress.com/shopirishdance/6973766

Best part is that you get something too -- beautiful photography, together with inspiring dance quotes to get you through the year. (Check out some of the comments at http://www.dance.net/topic/8692404/1/Irish-Adult-Dancers/Irish-Dance-2010-Wall-Calendar.html). And while adult Irish dancers were the models, it's great for all ages of dancers -- if you can, please share it with others at your school!

Most importantly... THANK YOU.... in advance to those who order and support us. We'd also like to thank the other North American teams who've blazed the trail for us to go this year - BFOC, Bremer and O'Rourke. We hope to do all of you guys proud!
