Dancing to the US
BRAY DANCER Ian Lawless is off to Boston to dance in the World Irish Dancing Championships. The competition will be held in America over next Easter.
Ian competed at City West Hotel & Conference Centre recently in the qualifying rounds for the Leinster region and placed second in the under 10s age group. Ian's proud mum Susanne is also a champion dancer and delighted with her son's success.
He learns his skills from teacher and adjudicator Olive Hurley who is based in Stillorgan and Sandymount.
The youngster faced very tough competition to win his place in the championships in Boston next year. Only a small percentage of the dancers at City West managed to make it through.
