Twenty dancers, 13 parents, 2 Champions, 7 podiums, 18 pieces of glassware coming back to Essex/Kent/Oxford/London, 100% recall for all of our dancers at the largest dance event in history and the trip of a lifetime!
From heavy shoes to cowboy boots, hair pieces to stetsons: Nashville, you brought it all and more! The amazing results speak for themselves and the memories were priceless.
Thank you to Frances, Guy and The Friends Of McGahan Lees for coordinating and supporting our dancers and MCGL families, enabling them to experience not 1 but 2 trips across the Atlantic this year! Team work really does make the dream work πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
Not forgetting a big thank you to Grant for a fabulous photo-shoot. We can’t wait to see the final pics!

Three years in the making and this trip was simply fantastic! We had too many photos to share but this video sums up the week perfectly! Please also check out our videos of FeisTV‘s exclusive interviews with our two champions below! The best memories were made this year and we had fantastic results all round!!
18 dancers, 100% recall, 2 Champions, 7 podium places and 14 Top 10’s.
Extra shout out to our three special supporters that were unable to compete this year due to injury along with our 2 World Medalists who were unable to attend. You’re all part of our team and we know it was difficult having to watch from the sidelines or back home.
PROUD as always of every single dancer that graced the stage.
