For 45 years, Mrs. Rosemary's Dance School has been teaching students how to dance. So as The Early Show gets ready to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, some of her pupils visited weatherman Dave Price at the plaza to dance a jig.
But not before Price enlisted a man from the street to join the 12 students step dancing with Horn Pipe shoe.
Carrying a bag in each hand, the man got in place and in good Irish spirit gave a performance of his own. Watch the video.

For its eighth year, Dress for Success has been helping women gain employment and self-efficiency through its Send One Suit Week.
Women should take donations of a new or nearly new suit to one of more than 800 Dress Barn stores during the week of March 14-20, 2004.
"A donation of just one suit can empower a woman struggling in a low-income situation to start a new life of self-sufficiency and success," said Joi Gordon, executive director of Dress for Success.
Once a woman is employed, she receives ongoing career development from The Professional Women's Group, Dress for Success' nationally recognized employment retention program.

With St Patrick's Day only a week away, The Early Show thought it would be the perfect time for an Irish Dance performance. So the Brian Sexton Academy Dancers stopped by the plaza to show weatherman Dave Price a few steps from traditional Irish dance, like those featured in "Riverdance."

Irish step dancing and the basic skills, including material that is done in such shows such as "Riverdance," are included in the dance curriculum. For more information, visit sextonacademy.com.
