SEChamps2018After our Easter break, we couldn't wait to get back to what we love most in May - FEISING! 

May brought with it the Southern England Championships hosted by Ann Butler and her team. The feis took place in Kings Langley over one day with 2 halls running, the grades hall and the championship hall. This made for a busy day for our Liz having to run between 2 different halls, but at least she didn't have to do the really hard job of getting up on stage! Haha!

All our dancers performed brilliantly and we received some great results in both the grades and the Open Championships. 

Congratulations to all our dancers that took part in the competitions but a special mention to:

Freddy Beard - 1st, Age 10 Championship
Ailish Cowling - 1st, Age 10 Beginner A Trophy
Jenny Found - 1st, Senior Beginner A Trophy
Lucia Sanchez-Burke - 2nd, Age 20 Open Championship
Jessica Ellis - 3rd, Senior Championship
Kayla Hughes - 4th, Age 13 Prelim
Grace Barry - 7th, Age 20 Championship

The Southern England Championships, marked a very special event for Team Ellis-Parr, as this was our first competition with CRDM. We cannot thank our new colleagues and dance buddies enough for how welcome we were made to feel. It was truly the most fun we have had at a feis for a very long time. We cannot wait to continue our Irish dancing journey with you in years to come. Here's to our new chapter!

These sort of results really do prove that hard work pays off, so to all our EP stars, you better get back to practising ASAP! 

Lastly, we would like to thank Anne and her team for putting on a brilliant feis. We had a ball and we'll definately be back next year!
