20th Anniversary Medals

We have now received the samples of the bespoke 20th Anniversary medal for our open feis Championship competitions! We are so pleased with how they have turned out. This is our specially commissioned medal to commemorate 20 years the school has been running. We can hardly believe that it has been that long already. We are so proud of our teachers, dancers and parents (past and present!) that have made it possible. A huge thank you to all!!!

Congratulations Frances & Marion

Congratulations to our teachers Frances McGahan and Marion Flanagan who have just passed examinations to become Grade Examiners. This means they are qualified not only to adjudicate Irish dance competitions, but also to assess dancers in Grade Examinations. Only experienced adjudicators are eligible to take this exam, so to have two of our teachers pass is a very prestigious achievement!
