Getting ready for the new year

To ensure we are ready for the new year, we have a couple special activities coming up:

Dress Fitting Party

Saturday August 26: 12:00 noon - 1:00 pm
Bring your dancer and their dress to ensure their costume still fits. We will do costume swapping if we need to, to ensure everyone has a dress for the coming year.

The Kilt Lady

Sunday August 27: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Kilt Lady is coming to visit and bring a trove of dance shoes, socks, wigs and more. This is the perfect way to ensure your dance bag is fully stocked for the upcoming year.

Year in Review - 2017/2018!

Thanks to our wonderful dancers and their families for another wonderful year of dance at Prairie Gael!

We are very proud of our dancers and their many accomplishments. We have a few highlights from this past year below:

  • We hosted and/or performed in more than 20 performances
  • Our competitive dancers won 470 medals, 160 trophies, and 1 sash
  • We travelled over 12,00 km
  • 4 dancers qualified for championships, and 4 other dancers are halfway there!

Your hard work and dedication throughout the year are an excellent representation of our school both here at home and on the road.

We can't wait to see what you do next year!!

Slainte! Mosaic 2017

A very big thank you to the Irish Club of Regina and all the wonderful volunteers who helped ensure the Irish pavilion kept running smoothly! Many of our dance parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends volunteered with security, the bar, or cleaning tables; we are very grateful for your willingness to help out. Without your support the pavilion wouldn't be feasible, and our dancers wouldn't have the chance to demonstrate their skills - so THANK YOU!!!

Keep tuned for more Prairie Gael Dancers in the community near you!

What a recital we had this weekend; an amazing show of talent from all of our dancers!

We are so proud of all the hard work you've put in throughout the year, and are thrilled we had such a wonderful opportunity to show off the results of your dedication and practice :D

We would like to extend a special thanks to all our volunteers - Ruth Adema, Elinor Adema, Meaghen DaCosta, Jenny Staudt-hamm, Mitch Aker, David Popoff, and Bernie Gavin - for their hard work. We wouldn't have been able to pull this off without you!!

Another warm thank you to our sponsor Bushwakker Brewing Company for their donation of door prizes and sponsoring of our bar :) We are grateful for our relationship, and love working with you.

Thank you again to all of our parents who spend countless hours shuttling dancers to and from lessons, and for your time and energy getting them ready for performances, none of this would be possible without you!

Can't wait until next year's recital!!

PS. if you have photos or videos of the recital you are willing to share with us, we would greatly appreciate it :)

St. Patrick's Day Success!!

Thanks again to our parents and dancers for another wonderfully successful St. Patrick's Day celebration!

This year we pushed the bar even higher with 21 appearances throughout the day - woohoo!! 

Not only did we celebrate on March 17, but we carried the celebrations throughout the entire weekend: a wedding anniversary Saturday evening, and our annual appearance the the Spring Free From Racism Celebration on Sunday :D
