Did you know Coco Rocha used to be a serious Irish dancer? Yep, the illustrious model was jigging all over the place as a child and Irish dancing actually played a major part in propelling her modeling career. She was discovered at an Irish dance competition and became known as the Irish dancing model after Jean-Paul Gaultier asked her to jig down his runway in 2007.
Apparently, Irish dance still holds a place in Coco‘s heart. A new documentary about the very intense-seeming Irish dance world is out and the model is hosting an online screening tonight. The concept of an online screening does sounds strange, as does the fact that, according to a release, viewers can chat with Coco in real-time both during and after the film via webcam. But nevertheless, it’s happening, and we like that anyone can participate.
