Our Irish Dance National Championships was held over the holiday weekend in Orlando, Florida. It's a very exciting event for dancers as it it a World Qualifying event. All the competitors train incredibly hard leading up to the Nationals and are all crossing their fingers during award ceremony hoping their number will be called in a top spot so they can continue onto the World Championships.
We would like to wish a big congratulations to Ciara's student, Joe, for winning the U13 boys competition! Joe traveled from England to participate in this event and is thrilled to have won it! Many of our Dunleavy students have met his sister, Charlotte who is an Irish dancer at Raglan Road in Disney World who was delighted to be there and watch her little brother take home the American National title. Congratulations to Ciara, Joe, and the entire Glendarragh Academy!
