Teacher Jessica Carragher said: “I’m so proud of all our dancers’ achievements, especially our three champions Saskia, Katie and Megan.

“All the dancers worked really hard at class and the extra hours of practise leading up to championships paid off.

“One of highlights was watching my fourteen month year old daughter Sienna Nottingham take the stage. She loved the attention and gave the judges a wave!”

The Carragher Academy is based at the Beormund Community Centre, Abbey Street and meets every Tuesday and Thursday 5-8pm.
