Ulster Highland Dance Championships 2017

Congratulations to Grosvenor pupil Leah McIlwrath, Year Nine, who recently retained her provincial title in the juvenile category at the Ulster Highland Dance Championships, held in Londonderry. Leah won the title with straight firsts (placed first in each of the four relevant dances) and also picked up the juvenile national trophy on the day.

Leah, who dances for the ‘Michelle Johnston School of Highland Dance’, based in Moneyreagh, has been rewarded for her dedication, which sees her train three – four times a week, for a total of approximately ten hours.

Well done to Leah on this remarkable achievement and we wish her further success with her continued dance-related endeavors over the coming months and years.
