Lord Mayor, Alderman Gareth Wilson has held a special reception for local girls who competed in the Dance World Cup in Offenburg Germany.
The girls all belong to the Jennifer Marshall School of Dance based at Richhill and the Lord Mayor welcomed Jennifer and her team of dancers to a special reception to honour their achievements in competing in the international dance competition.
Alderman Wilson said, “What a great group of girls and they are all so clearly dedicated and competitive in what they do. They have a great instructor and teacher in Jennifer Marshall and they pride themselves in doing the very best they can to achieve success.”
He added, “The girls had put together a slide show of their Germany trip and it was a massive event for them to take part in and they all learned so much through this international competition. What was so obvious is that they all had a great time doing what they love to do.”
He concluded, “I wish Jennifer and all her dance pupils well as they continue to dance and make preparations for competitions closer to home. With huge emphasis now placed on kids to exercise more, Jennifer’s pupils with their high tempo routines certainly have no trouble staying fit and active. Well done to them all on representing our Borough on a world stage.”
