Product Details

Our pumps come with a rounded convex suede sole that allows flawless turns and shifts as you step through your routine.

But thanks to these padded insoles the strain on your joints are significantly reduced by absorbing about 85% of the impact. As an added bonus the poron padded insole is also antibacterial so a lot of the germs that would be collected from sweating in your shoes wonít be a problem. And it will also help to reduce odor.

The people of Ireland are well known for their dancing, with dance being an integral part of the Irish culture and their identity. The people of Ireland take great pride in their traditional Irish dances and the people who perform them. Itís the one thing aside from competition sports that really drive the people of Ireland. Dance is such a huge part of their culture that when the Irish were forced to leave due to the Great Famine in the 1800s dance was one of the cultural staples they carried with them.

Around the 18th century, Irish dance became a disciplined form of dance. Dance Masters began to travel to communities teaching the people how to dance in group classes. Eventually, rivalries among Dance Masters began to form, and Irish dance competitions became a common practice. The structure really came to the Irish dance community when a committee was formed known as the Gaelic League. They formed professional competitions for step dances to compete on a national level.

Throughout the centuries Irish dance has evolved and but itís really within the last 30 years that weíve seen a resurgence of Irish dance in recent years. The production of Riverdance, in particular, has been an integral part of the revitalization of Irish step dancing. Jean Butler, a competition dancer, and Michael Flatley co-choreographed a piece entitled Riverdance meant to be an intermission piece. The performance was such a success that the seven-minute piece was transitioned into a full show. Itís been viewed by thousands of people and was even performed at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

From 1994 to 1997 Butler participated in Riverdance and the show acted as a catalyst for young dancers, rejuvenating the love of Irish dance and expanding the competition dance circuit. Jean went on to create Dancing on Dangerous ground based on the Irish classic Diarmuid and Grainne. Sheís gone on to have much success, receiving awards for her contribution to Irish dance and even releasing an Irish dance masterclass. There were thousands of young girls who were inspired to follow in Jean Butlerís footsteps.
