In addition to keeping up with school work as an STA freshman, Brigid O’Connor has been pointing her toes in a few other directions, too.
Last Wednesday, October 23, Brigid traveled to Torquay, England to compete at the 2019 Great Britain Irish Dance Championships. On Saturday, she competed against 118 other dancers from England, Scotland, Ireland and Canada and earned 3rd Place! Brigid’s coach was Dubliner, Niall Holly.
While on her excursion, Brigid stopped by Stonehenge to take in the historical site and absorb some of the local culture.
Brigid’s next competition is the New England regional championships in Hartford, CT at the end of November. As the 6-Time Regional Champion, Brigid will be defending her title. She will also be the featured dancer on the December cover of the globally-circulated Irish Dance Magazine.
