Day 111 – #18 Go to the World Irish Dancing Championships in London

Wow!  What a day that was.  On Good Friday, seven of us from our dance school went up to London on the train to see the Worlds in all its technicolour glory!  Having been to a national feis before I thought I knew what to expect, but the sheer scale was phenomenal.  The place (Hilton Metropole) was absolutely rammed out with bewigged, be-blinged dancers.  We watched various competitions including the Girls 20 &21 individual, the girls 16-19 ceili, the Mens 20-21 and Mum & Laura watched the Girls figure dancing too.  The standard was crazy.  You would expect that given they were the world’s best, but how the judges separated them out I do not know.

We had a great day out and it certainly gave us a lot to think about with regard to our technique!  Here are a few pics:
