    I’m so disappointed Milwaukee, home to largest Irish Fest in the WORLD wasn’t part of the opening for this doc.  It’s not just a flick kids will rush to but a lot of older people worship step dancing because of the custumes, the excitement of it all and the connection it makes for them with ‘the old sod’. I don’t consider myself old (I’m old enough) but when I know there are dancers at a nearby event – I don’t care if it’s a small town parade – I’ll go. – and in case you didn’t know – some of those custumes costs thousands.

  • Doc Soup Man

    You are quite right–it’s a film for all ages. It’s just so rare for a doc to have potential appeal to youth, that I highlight that here.
