Australian Championships 2018

2018 saw our dancers and families make the trip to Cairns in North Queensland, with the Australian Irish Dancing Championships held there for the very first time. We had a fantastic group of dancers and their families head to the 5 day event. It was there we claimed our newest Australian Champion, Isaac Loxley! Isaac took out first place in Intermediate Boys 14 years, and we are delighted with him taking home the title in such a talented section.


Scoil Ard Rince dancers took out a further 5 podium places in solo events, with 3rd places going to Lana Jones (9 years), Freya Jones (11 years) and Chloe Peirce (Senior Ladies 20-21 years); 4th place to Kate Edgar (14 years) and 5th place to Jasmine Merison (18 years).

Our teams also had great success with 4 teams placing as runners up with a total of 15 teams placing in the top 10.

We’d like to congratulate each and every dancer that represented Scoil Ard Rince. We couldn’t be more proud of the time and effort you all put in to prepare for the championships.
