This year has been a very exciting, productive, and fulfilling one… beyond all of the smiles, fun, friendships and lasting memories, we achieved some amazing results that cannot go unmentioned. We brought home a Title and five Top 5 placements from the 2011 North American National Championships! We were awarded 7 titles and 18 Top 5 placements at the 2011 Regional Championships, with 21 soloists qualifying for the World Championships! The World Championships brought us a 3rd place in the U12 boys, 9th and 24th in the U14 Girls, 11th 17th & 23rd in U15 Girls, 27th in U19 Girls and 11th 12th and 17th in the Ceili competitions! Congratulations to each dancer that has performed on stage throughout the year in cities all across the world — we are very proud to have you represent the Mulhern School!
In addition to all of the placement successes our school has achieved, we have expanded into the Minneapolis, Minnesota area! We are now teaching classes in St. Louis Park, MN. We have an excellent and growing class up North. Please welcome our new family members.
We look forward to the continued development of each dancer in our school. Their hard work and positive attitude will assure much fun and contentment. W e thank all of the parents for sharing your beautiful children with us and the sacrifices your family makes to allow them to dance with us. We know we are very blessed to have you a part of our school family and we appreciate your commitment to this form of dance — Irish dance — and the Mulhern School!
Congratulations to Conal Mulhern O’Kane of the Mulhern School of Irish Dance who placed 3rd in Boys 11-12 at the 42nd World Irish Dancing Championships, hosted by An Coimisiún le Rincí Gaelacha (the World Irish Dancing Commission). The competition draws 6,500 dancers annually.
Winners earn a traveling trophy, shown here, which is theirs to keep until a new winner is crowned at the following year’s competition.
This year Worlds were held in Belfast, Northern Ireland starting March 31st, with a panel of esteemed adjudicators from Australia, Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States tasked with the difficult job of selecting the best competitive Irish dancers in the world today. Other results can be found here.
Next year Worlds will be held at Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA — its only the second time that the annual meet has been held in the United States, and the first time for Boston. Twenty cities competed for the honor of hosting the 2012 event.
Once again, Mulhern sent a number of dancers to the international competition. Congratulations to all Mulhern dancers who competed.
