Lizzie - The Irish Dancer
I'm Lizzie and I'm a dancer from the Mountains of Mourne. I kick and I flick, and I jig and I reel. Dancing is an important part of our culture but it's great craic as well and it help keeps me fit. I've entered many's a feis and I've won plenty of medals but the best of all is dancing with my bear pals.
Our dances must be done with precision and perfectly timed with the music. And our costumes and wigs must be flawless as well. When I dance, I have two sets of shoes - soft for high jumps and leaps and hard for dances that require shuffles and clicks. Dancing is deadly, as us bears say.
