The Big Jig

Image 1 / 8

When you think of activities that promote teamwork, discipline and unity, dancing probably doesn't come to mind. But that's because you haven't seen the competitive world of Irish dancing. In its new special The Big Jig, TLC delves headlong into the competitive Irish dancing. The special follows five kids on their journey to compete and win the international Irish dancing finals. Competitive Irish step dancing grew out of traditional Irish music and celebrations. Competitions are called féiles or feiseannas, and dancers are evaluated for technique, style, timing and rhythm.
