Congratulations to all of our IPDA Dublin and Galway students and team who took part in this year’s ‘Pole Theatre Ireland’ competition on April 18th! Well done to Karen, Racheal, Olga, Fi, Aileen and Yvonne, and our instructors Kathleen and Leanne, who wowed the audience with their performances and delivered perfect routines! Yvonne deserves an extra shout out, for smashing not one, but TWO epic performances and carrying on in spite of her music stopping halfway through; true show-womanship!
Leanne Cummins – Professional Level ‘Drama’ category winner
Yvonne Jacob – Advanced Level ‘Classique’ category joint-winner
Fi Rooney – Intermediate Level ‘Comedy’ category winner
Kathleen Doherty impressed the judges so much that she has been invited to compete in the Grand Final of Pole Theatre UK on May 9th in Hertfordshire. A massive good luck from all of us here Kat! We will be cheering you on!
