After months of preparation from children and adults alike, Team Cleary is bringing home 7 titles from the Western US Regional Championships held in Salt Lake City last weekend!!
This is a tremendous result across both solo and team competitions with significant success for all dancers and teachers. At Cleary Irish Dance, we encourage all of our students to set goals and work toward them. Last weekend was a true testament to how much work goes into achieving those goals. 48 dancers total travelled to the championship, with 20 solo dancing champions and 8 adults. Most students achieved personal bests, and 5 solo dancers and 5 out of 6 eligible teams qualified to dance at the World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland next March.
Every child who stepped on stage in SLC representing Cleary Irish Dance, started as a beginner with Margaret Cleary SDCRG. They are truly "purple people" through and through. As you can see, our family atmosphere is a huge part of our success. We win together!
