Team Cleary was absolutely thrilled to be in Belfast, Northern Ireland for the 50th Anniversary of the World Irish Dance Championships, especially after a two year postponement! Sending 13 soloists and 3 ceilis, Team Cleary represented the Western US among the highest caliber of Irish Dancing in the world. We couldn’t be prouder of everyone for coming together and bringing home 32 World Medals and 2 Globes back to sunny Los Angeles!
