IMG 2502Summer flew by in a blink of an eye and last weeekend we kicked off the new feising season with a bang at Feis MK, which is hosted by  the Mary Drake School of Irish Dancing.

On Saturday we had 3 beginners taking part in the competition, Hayden in the U7, Amy in the U9 and Libby in the O11 Grades. They all danced well and came home with some truly fantastic results. Later on in the day, our Freddy took to the floor in the U11 Boys Championship and the U10 Open Solos & Championship. As always, Freddy managed to shine on stage, even with the competitions running late into the evening and this showed in his results.

Sunday brought with it our older dancers, Emily in the U16 Open, Grace in the U17 Open, Lucia in the U18 Open and Michaela & Jessica in the Senior Open competitions. They all performed well and were rewarded with some fantastic results.

Congratulations to all the dancers over the course of the weekend, especially:

Freddy Beard, for receiving his first 100 in the Mixed U10 Championship & 3rd place in the Boys Championship
Michaela Green, runner up in the Senior Ladies Championship
Amy Heath, receiving first place in her light jig 
Libby Johnson, winning a trophy in the Beginners B section

We would like to thank the teacher and all the parents at the Mary Drake School for a fantastic weekend and we'll see you next year.
