Here is the entry form for the first of this season’s “Last Man Standing” Academy fundraiser.
For those of you have never played before it’s a simple game based upon the Premier League football fixtures each weekend.
Simply pick a different team each week. If they win, you stay in. Then, the last man standing wins a very generous prize pot!
If you don’t know anything about football, don’t worry! Just choose a team in week 1 and we’ll select a team each week following by simply taking the next team alphabetically.
This is a successful fundraiser for the Academy, and the money raised goes towards supporting dancers at all levels within the Academy.
The competition is open to all dancers, families and friends, so please get everyone involved!
We have already started work towards arrangements for our next open feis in 2017. First and foremost, we have secured the date: 25th & 26th March 2017. This is one week before the start of the World championships and a great opportunity to get some last minute feis practice in. We want to make you aware of some great deals on flights to London airports available for the feis weekend from Ryanair and Easyjet. Please keep an eye on our open feis page – we will post details here as they become available, however you can use the information already on there as a guide.
The Great Britain Championships is a truly unique event, and always shows what we think is one of the nicest things about Irish dancing: the lasting friendships that you make along the way. We were so proud of the amount of support that all our dancers gave each other, and of course the fun that was had by all. Here are a few photos that sum this up:
Supporting our friends
Relaxing and enjoying!
Letting our hair down!
We want to say a huge good luck to our dancers competing at the Great Britain Championships next week.
Everyone has worked incredibly hard over the summer and the last year in order to prepare for the major events coming up this autumn.
Focus, relax, enjoy performing, and your training will take care of the rest!
Have a fab time everyone!
We are delighted to be joined by so many of our cousins from Canada (Goggin-Carroll School) and Australia (Scoil Rince Creer) for our GBs preparation this year.
