Success for Scoil Ard Rince at the 2011 Irish Dancing World Championships

All of the hard work and determination has paid off for the Scoil Ard Rince dancers who competed at the 2011 Irish Dancing World Championships in Dublin last week.

All dancers performed very well in outstanding levels of competition but huge congrats must go to Chloe Peirce and Celia Shawcross who made it into the recall rounds and placed so highly; Chloe recalled and placed 38th out of 168 in the 13-14 years and Celia placed 25th out of 93 in the 19-20 years. Declan Carr, Ellen Rafferty, Roisin Rafferty, Molly Rafferty and Katie Maloney also danced superbly, with over 150 competitors in each section!

Getting to qualify to the World Championships is in itself an honour and to bring home some medals is absolutely amazing – well done guys!

Chloe also had the honour of meeting the Irish President at the opening ceremony and had her photo taken with the president along with representative dancers from other countries.

Check out the pics in the gallery and see some of the girls’ beautiful new dresses!
