I might be a little biased with this story, but so be it. Irish dance is awesome.

This story caught my eye because I teach Irish dance at Academy De La Danse in Davison. Our downstairs studio is used for dance classes for adults and kids with special needs - Holly Halabicky, the owner, makes it a point to offer classes for people of ALL abilities.

They're a performance troupe from the Detroit area that specializes in Irish step dance. Yes, like Riverdance.


He's the company's biggest fan, according to the teachers, and they decided to incorporate him into a dance recently. It's called Kaden's Ceili (pronounced kay-lee, meaning "group dance" in Gaelic) and it's melting hearts everywhere.

The Motor City Irish Dancers are working on starting a program for people with special needs.
