Ye Gods and little fishes!


I'm almost at a loss for words over this video.  Imagine a group of Englishmen . . . performing Irish dancing . . . to the music of a classical German composer (Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik) . . . complete with disco trimmings and a beat box.





Whose idea was this, anyway? Verily, the mind doth boggle . . .

It actually starts with Beethoven's 5th Symphony, then it switches to Mozart's Eine kleine Nachtmusik and finishes with Vivaldi's The Four Seasons but I get your point...

And FWIW, the beat box is more properly termed a cajón. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cajón

And then there was the aging disco dancer who married the Chinese cook.

She had a cute way of wokking.

Looking at the shoes, note the metal pieces on the bottom, that is more tap dancing than it is Irish.
