#7: Irish Dancing

Over the Easter holidays, one of our year 6 children travelled to Montreal in Canada to take part in the World Irish Dancing Championships.

Having qualified through the places available to the Midlands, Grace was then asked to dance two heavy dances and one light dance to an audience of thousands! Grace said that she was a mixture of nerves and excitement but importantly she enjoyed the competition and the experience.

She had to dance as part of her dance group as well as individually – in her age group, she came 62nd out of 154!

Grace is definitely going to continue to dance and will be looking to get a world medal at the championships soon.

Well done Grace – this is a phenomenal achievement and you should be so proud.
