The third and final day of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Irish Dancing Championships is as exciting as the first, with important solo and team titles up for grabs! Check here Monday on Go Feis! The Irish Dance Blog for Mid America solo and team results!
This year, the 2010 Girls under 11 World Champion Julia O'Rourke claimed her fifth consecutive Mid-Atlantic Regional Irish Dancing Championship in Girls under 12. O'Rourke is perhaps best known for her role in the much-lauded documentary Jig!, a film by Sue Bourne about the 2010 World Irish Dancing Championships. Sean Crosby, Mid-Atlantic Regional Irish Dancing Champion for Boys under 12, and Owen Luebbers, Mid-Atlantic Regional Irish Dancing Champion for Boys under 13, both claimed their fifth consecutive title this year.
