Year End Recital & BBQ!

Our twentieth year ended with a bang!

We had a fabulous recital at the Performing Arts Centre which showcased the hard work our dancers have put in all year long. 

We are grateful to Bushwakker for their sponsorship of our bar, and the donation of wonderful door prizes. We had a fabulous concession and are very thankful for our parent volunteers who helped out with the set up, sales, and tear down. 

We finished the weekend off with a fabulous bbq in Candy Cane Park. With over 100 attendees, including parents, siblings, and dancers, we had a fabulous gathering. We were lucky enough to avoid the rain, and had warm weather for a variety of games. 

Thank you ever so much to the fabulous dads who helped grill the hamburgers and hotdogs, and to the moms who brought a variety of games to challenge and keep us entertained -  we loved learning 'poop the potato'!! 

Mosaic 2018!

We are thrilled to have participated in yet another Mosaic!

While there mayn't have been an Irish pavilion, we were lucky to have been offered the chance to perform at the Austrian pavilion this year, and a few of our students had the chance to dance as members of the Irish Club at the Scottish pavilion. 

We are grateful to both the Austrian and Scottish pavilions for including our dancers in their pavilions and allowing them the opportunity to participate in Mosaic this year. 

A huge thank you to Bernie and David for helping us out at Mosaic this year, and to our dance parents who helped with sound at the Scottish pavilion performances. 

Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhaoibh!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

We had yet another a fabulous St. Patrick's Day this past weekend. We are thrilled that Prairie Gael has been able to help Regina celebrate 20 years of the great Irish Saint.

We made multiple media appearances - thanks to Global, CTV, and Lite 92.1 for visiting with us - and 14 pub appearances! 

Our dancers represented our school fabulously and we are exceptionally proud of them all! 

We'd like to extend a special thank you to our parents who help get our dancers ready, and transport them from performance to performance - we couldn't do it without you! 

Slainte!!

Dancing with Daniel O'Donnell!!

We were were ecstatic when we heard from Mr. Daniel O'Donnell himself, when he invited our group to perform with him on stage at his show in Regina.

We teach some very talented dancers, but we also have a very talented parent group, so one of our dance mums, Tanya Healy stepped up to the plate and had a wonderful time. Thanks to Daniel O'Donnell and his team for the invitation!

 

First Feis of the Year

We are thankful to River City for hosting the first feis in Saskatchewan for almost a decade this past weekend. 

We had a fabulous turnout of dancers at the feis, and many Prairie Gael dancers - including many performance dancers - also took advantage of the grade exams offered on the Friday. Congratulations to all our dancers who challenged grade exams, we had a 100% pass rate!

Another congratulations to our first feis-ers who had a fabulous showing at the first feis of their careers - well done ladies!
