This week, 46 of our Accelerated and Accelerated Plus dancers will be traveling to Vancouver, BC, Canada to compete in the North American Irish Dance Championships. The competition will be taking place from July 1st to July 5th with over 3,000 competitors estimated to be in attendance. A prestigious event, dancers travel from all over the world to compete at the North American Nationals, and we are so proud to have so many talented dancers representing Trinity at the competition!
All dancers competing have qualified to dance at the championship, and will have an opportunity to qualify for the 2020 World Irish Dancing Championships that will take place in Dublin, Ireland next April. Our dancers have been training in class 3 – 4 times a week, plus at home practice, additional strength training and performance conditioning classes outside of the studio. As they attend their last practices this week, be sure to wish all of these dancers the best of luck as they represent Trinity on the Nationals stage!
