In the space of 3 weeks, McGahan-Lees dancer Gavina Zuccarello managed to win the Great Britain Championship, All Irelands and Southern England Oireachtas. To top it all Gavina also secured the prestigious Over 12 Traditional Set Memorial Belt title at the Oireachtas, just before performing at the event’s Parade of Champions. The highlight during this whirlwind period has to be Gavina’s amazing haul at the All Irelands of 4 gold medals, securing first in all 3 solos as well as the overall All Ireland title itself. Gavina’s amazing work ethic and determination  is an inspiration to our younger dancers and proof that hard work does pay off.
