TLC Wants To Get Jiggy With It…Irish Style

| Filed under: TV NewsWacky, Tacky & TrueZportz

TLC is journeying into another realm of unique culture.

This time, the network wants to go deep into the world….of competitive Irish riverdancing.

The new series, Irish Dancing Tweens, young dancers and their training leading up to competitions. Each episode will highlight different dancers.

And of course, each episode will also have its fair share of crazy and obsessed mothers drilling the dance into their children's feet.

TLC has also acquired the rights to Jig, a British documentary highlighting the Irish folk dance.

Check out the video above and see how fast these kids move their feet!

    It's called competitive Irish Dancing not competitive Irish Riverdancing! Riverdance was a show.

    I started to become fascinated with Irish step dancing shortly before "Riverdance" came out. Every year I went to the annual Irish music festival in my town and the first time I saw the step dancing I was hooked. Mesmerized. Every year I went to watch the dancing. I esp like male dancing best but am surprised to learn that those curls on the girls are wigs! I never would have guessed that! I'll definitely be watching this series and the documentary! I wish I had learned this dance when I was a kid but alas I am German so no one knew!

    I didn't realize this was still big - my kid did it for a long time, and it seemed like when she quit, it was a lot less popular than when she started, at the height of the Riverdance craze.

    Basically you entire site is now one big commercial for X Factor, TLC, talk shows and music videos no one watches. Great blogging.
