Good morning Houston and Happy St. Patrick's Day! The Cass-Barrington Academy of Irish Dance got an early call this morning to join Houston's local Irish band "The Jig Is Up" with their special guest musician, Mairtin de Cogain (bodhran extraordinaire), at the Georgeous Gael Irish Pub to start off the festivities on KHOU Channel 11!
We'll be back at 1:30pm for some more dancing and maybe a warm Irish Breakfast. Come out and join the fun!
What an amazing suprise! Out of 123 floats, the Cass-Barrington came out on top! 1st place in the 37th 1960 St. Patrick's Day Parade!
Our girls and boys danced their hearts out and won the judges over. Well done everyone!
And it's not over yet! The 17th is almost here and there's more fun to be had.
Here's a short clip of the downtown Houston St. Patrick's Day parade from Saturday. Check it out and see if you can spot our dancers in action!
Started off the St. Patrick's Day celebrations yesterday with a fantastic parade in downtown Houston, followed by several great performances by the Cass-Barrington Academy Irish dancers. They even managed to get some tattoos in between gigs...looking tough girls (they're fake of course, but the effect was real)!
We are doing it all again today with the 1960 parade and then a special guest appearance at the St. Arnold Brewery.
Only two more days until the official best day of the year. Put your green on and come join us!
The Cass-Barrington dancers were honored to perform on stage with the world famous piper Carlos Nunez! What an electric night of Celtic music and dance. The whole audience was up on their feet; truly a night to remember.
Thank you Carlos and band for the wonderful opportunity to put on an amazing show!
Amazing performance today up in Dallas for the North Texas Irish Festival! Our beginners demonstrated their dances with professionalism and grace and our champioship dancers blew the audience away with some new high energy choreography.
Well done everyone and what a great way to kick-off the St. Patrick's Day season.
