Ward-Mallinson School of Irish dancing is based at the IWHC Manchester. Earlier this month, they graced the stages at the 51st World Irish Dancing Championships, in Montreal, Canada.

Each and every one of the 9 competing Ward-Mallinson School of Irish dancing pupils gave their best, and the school enjoyed great success across the Easter Weekend event.

‘Every Dancer Really Brought Their A-Game’

Justine Ward-Mallinson, who runs the classes said, “I don’t ever recall having previously seen the overall standard of dancing as high in all competitions at any another World championship. Every dancer really brought their A-game”.

9 girls represented Ward-Mallinson School of Irish dancing, and Justine was delighted they won numerous world championship medals between them, which were proudly brought home to Manchester.

Ward-Mallinson School of Irish dancing classes take place at the Irish World Heritage Centre on Monday and Tuesday evenings. Get full information here.
