So I danced at Worlds! Unfortunately I caught a brutal cold the day before so I felt extremely sick all competition. I know I didn’t dance my best because of that, but I did dance my best under the circumstances, and it was a lot of fun. No recall but an amazing experience regardless ^_^

    Don’t worry, by the time the next major rolls around they’ll all have different dresses😆

    Seriously! It’s getting ridiculous they don’t even look different they could be team dresses!

    From the CLRG rules section 4.4.9: “All…

    The rule would only apply if ALL the dancers from Doherty petri had that type of dress. one big example of one of their dancers not having a nude and fire is Julia O’rouke and she won without having being identified as being from Doherty petri.

    julia had it on her cape at awards too

    Julia’s cape had a special meaning though and was only worn during results after she had already won. If we’re really going to pick at the dresses, let’s look at Niamh Neale, Cara McNulty or Amy Harley. Their dresses are not nude with flames. Anyways, again, FLAMES AND NUDE IS A GENERAL TREND. Ceili Moore has a nude and flames dress, the fire and ice celtic star dress, etc. Plus many of the dancers that are being pointed out have had these colors before. Shannon has always had the orange flame-y dresses. Olivia Gough has had black and orange/red dresses since she was U11 in Jig. Melanie has had orange dresses. Codie won worlds in a red dress and her Doire was red and black. While I do think that a lot of the new dresses FROM ALL DESIGNERS look similar, making sweeping, accusatory generalizations about the Doherty-Petri Gavins is pretty uncalled for. And if we’re gonna talk about schools having similar dresses, the conversation cannot be had without considering Clann McCaul or the Academy. Two schools with very distinct dress styles that serve as identifiers.
