Dancing Her Way Up to Preliminary Champion Status
We’re very proud of 4th grader Rowan Wright ’27 who recently competed in an Irish dance competition (a feis) in Kansas City. She not only qualified to compete in the regional competition called, “Oireachtas,” but she also advanced to the status of “Preliminary Champion!”
To qualify to compete in the regional competition, she needed to earn 1st, 2nd or 3rd in her four competition dances. To then advance to the next level of Irish dance, she needed to earn 1st place in her four competition dances to level up to “Preliminary Champion.” On a roll, she earned four 1st place finishes in one day!
