We had an incredible weekend in Akron and Cleveland! We drove to Cuyahoga Falls, OH on Friday and stayed in a beautiful hotel overlooking the falls.
We brought our good friend Emily with us, she is an Irish Dancer as well and was a great help for Hannah with practice and warming up!

There was a beaver on the other side of the river that we had fun watching.
Saturday morning we arrived at the Akron Feis. There were 10 stages and over 1000 competitors, this was a much large feis than the last one we attended.
Hannah had 12 competitors in her class and danced three different dances. In her first dance, the reel, she placed first!
In her second dance, the light jig, she placed 5th.
In her third dance, the slip jig, she placed 2nd! It was a very successful day for her!
Look at all the people!
On Sunday we were at the Wolstein Center on the campus of the University of Cleveland.
This was an even larger feis than the one in Akron and Hannah had 20 competitors in her class. We were hoping that she would just make it onto the board (top 5).
The feis was held on the floor of the stadium and had 10 stages with dancers competing.
Hannah is the 3rd girl from the left. They split them into two groups.
You can see, there was another dancer from her school, Rince Na Tiarna, in this competition.
Again, Hannah competed in the Reel, Light Jig, and Slip Jig.
Hannah received a 4th in the Reel, 3rd in the Light Jig, and 2nd in the Slip Jig!
Way to go Hannah! We were so proud of what you accomplished this weekend!
