They deciedd to surprise Fifth Avenue visitors with an Irish dance flash mob. It was a surprise-as people stopped in their tracks to watch the performance. The dance school's co-owner, Claire Gorman, said the dance and this weekend is important to the dancers.
"I think for almost all of my dancers, first and foremost, is that it's part of our heritage, it's our culture..and to be able to experience that and carry it on from generation to generation, is just such a blessing and a wonderful experience," said Gorman.
The girls will dance in the St. Patrick's Day parade in Naples on Saturday. The events begin at 9:30 with a traditional flag raising ceremony on Crayton Cove.
