LOTD then and now. Not quite sure how I feel about this.

I agree but if I remember correctly, Bernadette Flynn was like 16 during LOTD so I’m not sure how I feel about that either…

I didn’t know that ^^

I wouldn’t even practice in my underwear. Not to mention, perform.

Forget “wiggle, wiggle, wiggle” in my case it would be more like ” jiggle, jiggle, jiggle” lol.

but why? it looks really stupid??

I’ve thought about this a little and I think the reason it bugs me is it is only for the women. Yes flately goes shirtless but there is no exclusively male number with the boys in speedos. Its trying to appeal to the male gaze even when it has a mostly female audience.

YES. thank you. stole the words right out of my mouth. 

I think because they’re more like knickers rather than high waisted shorts kind of thing it makes a big difference

Is no one going to talk about the “jiggle jiggle jiggle” comment because I’m dying

No we’re not as we’re trying to emphasize the point that this show is becoming more and more sexualized and that is NOT okay

Thanks everyone.

I’d like to comment about the wiggle wiggle wiggle jiggle jiggle jiggle comment! Mine wouldn’t wiggle or jiggle.. They’d squiggle squiggle squiggle 🐙

As for the outfit, I’m going to make a post about my thoughts on it. Expect one in a few hours :)

Mackenzie Mahler . In every one of my  regional, national, and international competitions. She’s even on most of my flights.

Apparently leading up to oireachtas she was doing her set 5 times through. WITHOUT STOPPING. On a regular basis.

I saw her at the All Ireland’s and she competed on Thursday and got top 3 if I remember correctly…the next morning and every single day after that, I saw her practicing. 

but those spins…HOW

FIVE TIMES EXCUSE ME

I DIE AFTER 2 TIMES. HOW?!

i cant even do 5 with breaks in between

And guys, she does PLANXTY DAVIS AT 76

^ NO WAY! That’s a 3 minute set! That means when she does her set 5 times without stopping she would be dancing for about 15 minutes straight.

and people wonder how these girls stay at the top. learn from their hard work and match it. if she can do it, it’s humanly possible, and you can do it, too.

I can’t stop reblogging this because the comments keep getting better and better. I may have found my first dance inspiration.

Repost! Amazing

My motivation

It’s back😍❤️

Just saying, she was practicing the day after she got top 3 at all Ireland’s

So motivating

I stayed the entire week in montreal and everyday I went to the practice room she was in there
