2017nswceilichampionships_0646After many weeks of hard work and commitment, our dancers competed at the State Ceili Championships at Rooty Hill RSL. Although it has been a tough year so far with injury and sickness, the Currie- Henderson dancers seemed to come out on top with a very successful day. The day started off with our youngest team, the under 12 three hand, which resulted in a fantastic 2nd place. Well done to Scarlett, Lucas and Katalina!!

The day then continued on with our dancers involved in the Under15, Under18 and open sections. First off was the Under15 Girls 4hand, who managed to receive a recall and got 7th place which is fantastic achievement considering it was such a tough section. Congratulations Genevieve, Annalise, Alannah and Danijela!! Also competing in the same age group was Ailish and Frances who joined the other girls in a 6 hand, which placed 3rd! Additionally there were two 2hands, placing 6th and 2nd which is an excellent result. Fantastic effort girls!

In the afternoon, our senior dancers took to the stage. Both the girls and mixed open 4 hands, received recalls and placed 6th and 4th respectively. In addition to this, the open mixed received 3rd place and so did the open girls own choreography. These dancers have been working extremely hard to try and perfect their dances and technique and they should be very proud of their efforts and dedication.

The last section of the day wads the Senior figure dance. All the Currie- Henderson dancers ranging from 11-23 were involved in this dance and achieved 1st place!! This was a wonderful way to finish off the day. Everybody danced to the best of their ability and should be extremely proud of their efforts. Also, big thank you to their parents who are constantly showing their support for the dance studio and its members.
