Oh, what a night it was at the Finn Valley Athletic Centre last Saturday!

Months of preparation, hours of dedicated commitment from all the dancers, teachers and the team working away behind the scenes, led by the indominitable Mark Connolly, all culminated in a superb evening of entertainment.

Nine very talented couples competed on the dance floor, with Ciaran Carlin and Tara Hegarty taking top honours in tremendous style.

The group of 22 young club members who danced for the interval act were also amazing, and the crowd thoroughly enjoyed their performance.

A spokesperson for the club said afterwards: “The club members are extremely grateful to each and every that was involved. As a club, we are stronger and closer than ever before, such has been the community response.

“Many exciting challenges have been organised in the centre over the past 20 years but the buzz and professional approach to this production was special.

“The atmosphere on the night itself was amazing, with all 750 tickets having sold out well in advance of the night.

“Congratulations to everyone involved - all were winners!”
