This May half-term sixteen of our dancers travelled to Torrevieja, Southern Spain, in order to compete at the European Irish Dance Championships. And what a success – we now have four European Champions!

  • Ellie-Kate McCarthy (Under 9 champion)
  • Emma Freeman (Under 18 champion)
  • Rowann Fellows (Over 14 intermediate champion)
  • Lola Barker (Under 8 intermediate champion)

On top of that, we had eight more top three finishes, and everyone who went managed to get a top five spot!

A huge congratulations to everyone who went, including teacher Marion Flanagan who made sure everyone was ready, warmed up and raring to go.

A fantastic time was had by all – as well as the dancing, time was found to relax by the pool, go to the beach and profit from the wonderful Spanish weather. See you again next year, Torrevieja!
