With just two weeks until Worlds results, we have some exciting news...we have teamed up with our friends at Fusion Fighters to offer one lucky podium placer a scholarship to Fusion Dance Fest 2018!
All dancers who place in the top 5 of any Championship age group at the World Championships will be put in the draw to win this amazing prize (if you do not wish to be in the draw, please tell a stage helper as you leave the stage after results). Podium placers who do not win the Fusion Fest Scholarship will be offered a discount when signing up to Fusion Dance Fest 2018.
Dear Teacher & Dancers,
The Murphy Gray Academy of Irish Dance regret to announce that the upcoming WIDA Kildare Open due to take place this weekend has been CANCELLED due to severe weather warnings. This decision was not taken lightly. The safety of all dancers and their families is our highest priority.
All entry fees will be refunded as soon as possible.
Be safe, keep dancing and see you all soon.
Lisa Murphy & Laura Gray
