In the weekend from 3rd to 5th November, the 12th Mainland European Irish Dancing Championships was held.

The successful event, organised by the ISTA School Poland started on Friday 3th of November, with the opening ceremony, during which a number of the schools from Europe, Asia and the Middle East showcased their talents.

On Saturday and Sunday, it was competition time, with the European Championships and the European Trophy.

 

Saturday was an early start (8am) for the under 7s, 8s and 9s.
Rosa Waters taking part in her first ever Championship came 8th in the under 8s category, she did herself and the school proud.

Next up on the program was the first of the Qualifying Championship, for the age groups under 10 to under 15.

In a very tough competition Jessica Morris ended up 6th, just missing a qualification medal for the age group 11 -12.

As often is the case at Irish Dance competitions the times in the schedule are not always
