As an Irish American I am hard pressed to say I could willingly participate in Riverdance WHICH I DON'T! All it is is just fast paced goose-stepping whilst being paralyzed from the waist up! So against my will I went to a Riverdance class and started with the footwork and then unfortunately my nose was itching somethin' fierce and I just couldn't take it any more and lifted my arm to scratch it. To which the teacher just completely lost it and with his arms firmly at his side bellowed "You cannot use your arms in the riverdance! You mustn't use your arms in the riverdance! Your in serious trouble boyo! Come on!" then pointed to me with his leg "You! Let's go!"
