Spells for Irish Dancers
If you’re an Irish dancer, you’ll know just how magical St. Patrick’s Day is every year. But if you’re looking to make it even more magical, here’s a list of spells to help you get through the endless shows and celebrations the day brings.
1. Crispare Capilli
This spell is designed to leave your hair, or wig, in perfect ringlets. For all those non-Irish dancers out there, who have no idea what this means, Irish dancers always have their hair in curls while performing or competing. They can choose to curl their own hair or wear a curly-haired wig. The reason for this is because not only are the curls traditional, but they also make our jumps look higher when they bounce.
2. Fulgidi Calcei
Even more important than the hair, though, is the shoes. Each Irish dancer has two sets of shoes, hard and soft. Both sets are made of black leather, and, in order for them to look good, they have to be polished to perfection. This spell will give you shiny shoes without having to spend as much time, effort, and money on shoe polish as you would otherwise, and it can be redone between shows easily.
3. Mutare Viridis
Even if you aren’t an Irish dancer, the one thing everyone knows about St. Paddy’s Day is that you have to wear green! And this spell will help turn anything and everything green. It’s only temporary, though, lasting about a day, so if dancers want to dye their dress or shoes for the occasion, they don’t have to worry about permanent consequences.
4. Scaena Apparet
So it’s fairly common for Irish dancers to spend St. Patrick’s Day traveling around and performing at various locations, such as schools, retirement homes, and pubs. Now, some of these locations have a convenient stage for the dancers to perform on, but many don’t. It’s possible to drag around a portable stage, but those are often heavy and unwieldy. With this spell, though, you can simply point at the ground and the perfect stage will appear!
5. Bona Fortuna Tibi
I would recommend casting this spell on as many people as possible throughout the day, because this is a spell designed to bring good luck. Furthermore, with St. Paddy’s Day already being a day full of luck and magic, this spell actually becomes more powerful when cast on the holiday. It’s not quite as powerful as Felix Felicis, but it can still make someone’s day a bit brighter. And really, isn’t that why we celebrate the holiday in the first place?
