North American Championships—July 2018, Orlando, Florida

Murray Academy finished the competition with four Top 5 placers!

Congratulations to all who represented our school so well in Orlando! Overall, our school had another great year, with 30 of our 45 dancers receiving an award (67%), and of those, 14 – almost half – placed high enough to qualify for the 2019 World Championships!!  This means that a third of our dancers participating at the National level this year are on their way to Greensboro, NC next spring!  Special congratulations to our dancers in the top 5: Brigid O’Connor, National Champion, Girls U13B; Sadie Bucknam, 3rd place Girls U17B; Charlotte McDaniel, 5th place Girls U13B, and our U13 Girls Ceili team, 4th place, along with our other top 10 finishers Bailey Bartel (7th, U17A), Charley Finlay (10th, U10B) and Sarah Krein (10th, U19B).  We are so proud of how well they performed under pressure!
