Irish Dancers are a unique breed. Even at the most elite levels, they are involved students at school, accomplished
musicians, leaders, community volunteers and exceptional athletes. It is very important for them to understand how much
time they are devoting to their many activities, and how much time they are devoting to honing their craft of Irish
Dance. Organized by month of the calendar year, this journal allows dancers to track the time they have spent
practicing, pursuing their goals, their accomplishments, and their Feis results and goals. Dancers are encouraged to
share this journal with their teacher, to document their progress and to review their growth as an Irish Dancer
throughout the year.
Written by a certified Irish Dance teacher and adjudicator, the author began her Irish Dance studies in 1969 with one
of the most pre-eminent figures in Irish Dance in the United States, and continued to study with him until the early
1980's. As a parent, she has spent years helping her own children track their many hours spent in dance practice, music
practice, studying, homework, completing projects and writing papers.
