Congratulations to our teachers Frances McGahan and Marion Flanagan who have just passed examinations to become Grade Examiners. This means they are qualified not only to adjudicate Irish dance competitions, but also to assess dancers in Grade Examinations. Only experienced adjudicators are eligible to take this exam, so to have two of our teachers pass is a very prestigious achievement!

Christmas Class Feis 2015

Christmas Class Feis 2015 150 150 Isabel Yorke

Thank you to all who supported our Christmas Class Feis. This is an event that we look forward to all year: a real showcase of new talent and sheer enjoyment in dancing. We hope you loved the day as much as we did.

Congratulations to all who danced on that stage: it is not easy to get up in front of so many people, especially when it is your first time performing.

A further well done to our winners in each age group who we feel deserve a special mention:

U6: Portia Ostrowska
U8: Jacob Browne
U10: Drew Shanahan
O10: Hanna Mathieson

And our ‘Most Promising’ dancer: Drew Shanahan

Here are some photos from the day!
