World Championship Fundraising

Help us realise our dreams!

On 28th March, 9 dancers from the Scoil Ard Rince School of Irish Dance in Brisbane QLD will be heading to the 2015 World Championships in Montreal. This group of dancers, some of whom won the Australian National Championships in October, will be competing together in the teams event. The girls, ranging in age from 12 to 24, will also compete in the solo competitions representing their State as well as Australia.

Along with all the hard work the dancers are putting in, we realise that funds are needed to do such a trip. All families have gathered together to organise events and fundraising ideas to help these children live their dream of representing Australia at the World Championships. I hope that together with your help, we can make this dream come true for these wonderful dancers.
