UCM Festival

  • Congratulations to the students on a fantastic performance Saturday. We earned 2nd place in our division and scored 1st place overall in Auxiliary (Irish Dance, Lancer Dancers, props & flags)
  • Our score (78.05) was actually higher than a few schools who made finals, but because of the division/at large format, we missed out by just about ONE point.
  • We are so proud of how far we’ve come this year; we’ve raised our average competition score by over 20 points in the past 4 years. Thank you Seniors!!
  • Video and judges comments can be accessed here. Some very good comments from judges. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ENo4rGDEed2oGNwVQejLaOR0E5f-n_D0
