When Kate goes to her very first Irish dancing lesson she is smitten: It’s like flying, she decides. It’s the best thing she’s ever done. But, coming from a poor family in Dublin’s Liberties in the 1930s, how can Kate continue with her dancing? How could she ever manage to buy a fancy dancing costume? Still, Kate has her dreams – and sometimes dreams come true, even if not in the way we imagine!
