Claddagh Feis, and Upcoming Events!

We had an amazing showing at the Claddagh Feis this past weekend in Palm Springs! Everyone received medals and trophies and moved up in something. I am so proud of our girls for showing tremendous focus and great attitudes during the weekend. I look forward to the next feis, the Hidden Valley Feis in San Diego coming up during Labor Day weekend.

Weekly Blog – St. Rose of Lima Carnival!

We had a great show at the St. Rose of Lima Carnival on Friday, July 8! The carnival takes place in the summer each year. This is a great way for both the school and the parish to come together and have a great time. We had a wonderful show on Friday evening! The carnival folks were a great audience. This was our third year performing at the carnival. It was very fun to bring up some new dancers, as well as see the progress that some of our more seasoned dancers have made. Thank you, dancers and parents, for your hard work!
