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!
Please find below details of our summer workshops.

This class will commence on Friday 15th April.
In celebration of our 20 year anniversary, we have had some special medals commissioned for our open feis. So far, generous sponsorship for these has covered the purchase of enough for our championships; however, we would love to be able to offer these medals to grade competitions too. Sponsorship of an age group costs just £30 and we are appealing to businesses and families to help meet this cost. In return we are offering the following acknowledgement and advertising opportunities:
- Posters up around the feis, which will be seen by hundreds of people.
- Announcement of each sponsor during the awards ceremonies they have covered.
- Acknowledgement on our website.
- Acknowledgement in our free event programme booklet, which will be distributed to all attendees.
Here is the Order Form for our 2016 tracksuit top. All orders and payment in full (cheques only please, payable to “Friends of McGahan Lees”) by Friday 5th February.
Thank you all for having a go in our last man standing fundraiser. The winner this time is TJ Walsh who was the lucky winner of £200 for his £5 investment.
We are delighted to tell you that we will be starting a new LMS on the 5th March. More details to follow!
We hope that you will join us again once more to see if you can be the Last Man Standing!
Marion and all at Team MCGL
