Irish Dancing Festival

On Friday 14th March 2014, a group from Year 3 – Year 7 took part in our 12th Folk Dancing Festival.  The adjudicator, Miss Orla McCann, praised all the dancers for their behaviour and performances.  She added that this was her first visit to Ballyoran and she was very impressed with the standard of all the dancers.  A group of local musicians added to the atmosphere with a selection of Irish Traditional tunes.  In addition, Keelin Brennan, one of our Year 7 pupils, did an exhibition dance called, “The Blue-eyed Rascal”.  The major prize-winners were: Catriona Mackle (Year 4), Danica Hall (Year 6), Courtney Sharpe (Year 6) and Helena Santos (Year 7).  A big well done to all the team for dancing to the best of their ability, especially those who were on stage for the first time!
