This past Sunday, the 2020 North American Feis Commission (NAFC) Belt Championship was held in Lake Geneva, WI. This is a prestigious event in which any dancer who has won first place in an Open Championship competition at a Feis is invited to compete in the Minor, Junior or Senior Belt competition based on their age. The competition travels from year to year all over North America.
We had seven Trinity dancers attend the NAFC Belt this year, with others qualifying but not being able to attend. Congratulations to Gabby Huminsky, Reilly Sedlacek, Maddie Sliwinski, Anna Rochon, Gabby Panther, Ryan Peter, Ryan Chrapla, Nieve Howard, Luci Stocco, Gracie Peters, Haley Gross, Maya Fitzgerald, Kyra Himawan and Norah O’Dea on qualifying for this event!
There is one winner chosen in each of the 3 competitions, and then the top 6 are announced as well. Beyond that, dancers receive comments from the adjudicators to help aid in their continued growth as dancers. We are very proud of all of these dancers for this accomplishment this year. Special congratulations to Gabby Panther who made it into the top 6 in the Junior Belt championship!
