Ciara looked absolutely stunning in her new dress, and had some fabulous dancing to match! Ciara has put in so much hard work, and hit her stride heading into the weekend. She placed 34th in the tough U17 competition, Great job Ciara! ❤️🤍🖤. #MaloneAcademy #dancefamily #irishdance #wro2021

In trying to best describe Cameron’s dancing this year, I think I’ll go with the one I heard used the most in his ballroom… “Whooooah!!” Our reigning Senior Mens 20&O champion defended his title this year and was absolutely electric on stage. Cameron we are so proud of you! Well done

Greta’s consistent hard work really paid off this Oireachtas! It’s really tough when you aren’t cleared to dance until a few days before a major competition, but fortunately for G, the hours & hours of training all came together for two gorgeous rounds and a recall! Great-a job Greta

Our soon-to-be Dr. Rósie not only managed to balance dance training and chiropractic school, she managed to place 14th in an incredibly competitive Senior Ladies 22&O competition. What an inspiration!! We’re so proud of you Rósie!

Wow, Maddie was on 🔥 Sunday morning! She was flying around the Sonoran Sky stage and showing off just what she can do! When her dance day was done, in true Maddie fashion, she became the ultimate Malone cheerleader, rooting on her teammates and sharing the love as only she can. We’re super proud of you Maddie!

Susan did a FANTASTIC job at her first Oireachtas as a soloist! After coming back from an injury that kept her away from dance for 2 years, she learned two full dances, got into Prelims, and danced at the Oireachtas… all since the middle of summer! What an amazing young lady! ❤️🤍🖤

There may not be a comic book about her (yet!), but Maeve is definitely a superhero! No question! This beautiful smiling face spent the few days before the Oireachtas leading her HS Field Hockey team to the CIF Finals (California State Championships), playing the final game on Saturday at 1pm… yes, THAT Saturday… driving the 5+ hours from San Diego to Phoenix, getting a quick practice in on Saturday night, and then gracing the stage at 9am Sunday morning! I’m exhausted just writing all of that, but Maeve didn’t let that show at all… instead, she looked powerful and graceful, smiling the whole way through and placing 23rd overall!

Maeve is living proof that if you love something, you will find a way! We are so proud ☘️ ❤️🤍🖤. #MaloneAcademy #dancefamily #irishdance #wro2021 #idmfeisfun #irishdancingmagazine

Ariane graced the Oireachtas stage one last time (for now?😉) before she heads off to college in the new year… IN SWITZERLAND!! It’s no easy feat to dance with the reigning 7x Oireachtas Champion but Ari stayed poised and danced beautifully. We are so proud of you Ariane ❤️🤍🖤. #MaloneAcademy #dancefamily #irishdance #wro2021

Conor is fabulous, but don’t take our word for it. As soon as Conor finished his first round, Mikey had a lovely chat with a mom & daughter who hadn’t seen him dance before about his presence on stage, his extension and turnout, and about just how fabulous of a dancer he is! Conor’s performance earned him a spot on the podium, taking 3rd Place in the Mens U19 competition. Congratulations Conor!!

Brigid is a 4 year old in our Tiny Tots class… or that’s what I thought, until I realized that B somehow competed in Girls U18 at this years Oireachtas!! Wow how time flies! Just like time, Brigid flew across the stage in her rounds and had a great dance day on Sunday. Great job B!

Sunday is for Seniors… so who better to start off the day than our Senior Lady Superstar, Natalie!!

Natalie had a great day, traveling the stage with beauty & grace in a very competitive Senior Ladies 22&Over. We are so proud of you!! ☘️

Trad Sets we’re danced on Saturday and Aoife was our (ma)lone competitor. This was Aoife’s first time on a big Oireachtas stage and she had SO MUCH FUN because our Malone “big kids” were there to cheer her on.

The day finished with Mikey being the loudest person in the ballroom, as he and our Malone dance family cheered when Aoife was announced as the Under 7 TRAD SET CHAMPION!! Well done wee’un ☘️

Everyone starts somewhere. At Malone, we start every dancer off with the basics and they grow from there. Throw in some friendship, giggles and fun and it's a pretty awesome process. Dancers all have a point where it all just "clicks" and boy is it fun to see it all unfold! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It's been about a month.... Have we recovered from the @hiddenvalleyfeis yet over here at Malone Academy? Remains to be seen. Some of us went home and slept. Others went home and gave birth (congrats, K!). Still more turned right around and started planning for their next feisanna, Oireachtas and more! Needless to say, sometimes it sounds nice to just recline, scroll and sun whilst awaiting the next awards! ;-) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Lots to celebrate this weekend at Malone! Our littlest dancers are so important, starting on their Irish dance path. This weekend was Aidan’s first feis! This guy is no stranger to feis life as he has two dancing sisters, and countless cousins, aunts, and more who dance- not to mention mom is the one who makes Malone happen! Aidan did so well on his first feis: Reel: 2nd, Light Jig: 4th, Single Jig 3rd. Congrats, Aidan!
