The DanceComp 2022 – Carlow, Ireland


WPDA hosted the 9th edition of their DanceSport competition – The DanceComp 2022, this time at the lovely Dolmen Hotel in Carlow, Ireland on the 20th of November.

The DanceComp saw numerous events across all age groups and categories. We had events in Ballroom and Latin for everyone from Minors to Seniors. It was great to see representation across all age groups, both from within the Academy as well as other schools and International competitors.
