It’s been quite awhile since our last post. We had some problems which didn’t allow us to update this site. Those issues have all been resolved and we’re back!

The last post was about us going to our regional qualifiers.
A quick update on that:
We had 3 5th place finishers in our traditional set competitions. They received trophies, sashes, and got to stand on the podium. A HUGE Deal!
In our championships, we had 3 dancers get back to the 3rd round and we had two top 50 finishes and a 5th place. Our 5th place finisher in the championship was Nick, and he qualified for the North American Nationals and also, THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!
Our second qualifier from the school but our first boy.

Every dancer danced their heart out and I couldn’t have been happier with all of them and how they prepared and went into that competition.

Our Under 15 mixed ceili team did very well, placing 4th in the competition.

Since then, we have been to the World Championships of Irish dance 2016. They were held in Glasgow, Scotland, this year between Palm and Easter Sundays.

Nick was very nervous but danced his best and came back inspired and ready to tackle this next year. He was a great representative for our school, the city of Las Vegas, the western region, and our country.

We are currently performing around the city and getting ready for all the spring competitions-including our own on June 11th!
