This year’s World Championships, or Oireachtas Rince na Cruinne was held once again in the prestigious Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. As always, the competitions were large and extremely tough, with some age groups comprising as many as 150 qualified competitors.
It’s a week of fierce competition, but also of celebration, as dancers, families and teachers are reacquainted with friends from across the globe.
This year, we were lucky enough to gain five world medals, including the U16 Boys World Champion, Liam Costello.
McGL dancers also achieved many personal bests, whether that be dancing on the World stage for the first time, recalling, or coming in the top 20 or 30 competitors. Training for a World Championships is an enormous commitment, and we are so proud of all our qualifiers that undertook this journey in 2018.
