We have been coordinating this event for the International Association of Assessing Officers at the DeVos Convention Center in Grand Rapids for months. It took a bit more work since we were dancing at 7:45 AM and only for 20 minutes. Nine dancers braved the intense performance and did splendidly for the 4000 or so that showed up!
From the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) website: The Northern Lights Irish Dancers provided a very entertaining start to the #IAAO2013 Opening Ceremony/Annual Business Meeting this morning!
We did not do a typical show with a myriad of solos and performance pieces. We did a show full of performance pieces only, which proved to be challenging to the dancers, but what an awesome show! They worked super hard rehearsal week and perfected all 6 dances!
We were so excited to have our Mary and Anna, our Minnesota dancers join us! What fun we had with them! It was just like old times!
