Celebrating Irish Heritage in Halifax & around Nova Scotia!

Celebrating Irish Heritage in Halifax & around Nova Scotia!

March is always a bustling month in our household, with March Break events and of course  Irish Dance performances and celebrations around St. Patrick’s Day.

This year, however, is particularly excitig as we prepare to head off to  The CLRG World Irish Dance Championships in Glasgow, Scotland, taking place from March 24th to March 31st. My daughter, will be dancing in the solo competition for the first time. It's the culmination of years of dedication and perseverance, not only on her part but also thanks to the unwavering support and guidance from the incredible coaches at Rising Tide Dance Studio.

Watch for Rising Tide’s live television appearances on March 12th 10:30am on CTV News, and also March 14th 9am on Global News
