This adorable little Irish dancer is so excited after recalling in her u11 solo competition at a local Charlotte Feis. I just love the expression of happines, pride and accomplishment on her face. Irish dancers work so hard and even a local competition can be stressful, so it is wonderful when they get to see the benefits from all of their hard work and practice time, and I love being able to photograph these moments of pride for them.
