Linnane Wick of the Wick School of Irish Dance is an Oireachtas champion, meaning she's mastered the rapid footwork and spirited moves of Irish step-dancing. Irish step-dancing, which has been popularized by the stage show Riverdance, is characterized by fast and precise foot movements. Today, Wick and her team of instructors pass their skills on to others in classes. They teach students how to maintain the right ramrod-straight posture while performing reels and jigs, and demonstrate the importance of proper footwork to keep leprechauns from stealing your shoes.
