This past weekend, Cleary Irish Dance hosted the St. Ambrose Spring Feis - a two-day Irish dance competition - at the Sheraton Fairplex in Pomona, CA. Dancers from across the Western Region, ranging in age from 2 through to adult, travelled to Southern California for two busy days of competition. From first-timers through to championship dancers, many trophies, medals, and sashes made their way home with the winners. Particular highlights of the weekend included the Tiny Toes Special for pre-feisers and the Mother's Day Special, where dancers had the chance to compete on stage with their moms! Thank you to the hard-working event volunteers who helped to make this event possible and to all of the attendees who made the weekend so enjoyable!
Team Cleary had a very successful weekend bringing home an incredible 8 open championship wins and 1 preliminary champion! Congratulations to all dancers who participated on team day and swept every single open team category competition from u11 through to adult. We are very proud of our purple people!
