As always, we had a tiring but amazing weekend running our 18th open feis. Thank you to our fabulous adjudicators and musicians, and our tireless army of dancers, parents and friends who never fail to put on an unforgettable weekend.
Our Oxford and Essex Grade examinations have been successfully completed here at MCGL!! Well done to everyone who took part, we are extremely proud to see dancers achieve recognition for their progression.
Huge thanks to our fantastic examiner Margaret Morgan, and all that made the weekend run so smoothly!
We will be holding celebration evenings in Oxford on Friday 8th February and Essex on Saturday 9th February, at which dancers will received their certificates.
We always love running our Christmas class feis and this year’s was bigger than ever! At this event, the emphasis is on having fun, learning to perform and compete in a friendly environment. This year, our stage was graced by dancers from as young as 3 years old; complete beginners to championship dancers. At this event we get to see a real glimpse of the future of the Academy, and it’s looking bright! Well done to everyone who took and part and thank you to all their friends and family who came to support.
This year’s oireachtas season saw our dancers competing across 4 regions worldwide. Each dancer went with their own personal aim, whether it be to perform at a regional level for the first time, to book a qualifying spot for next year’s World Championships, or to be crowned regional champion. We are so proud of each and every one of you.
Here are our eight regional championships from across the globe!
