Eleven teams, 57 dancers and a 400-strong audience packed into Saval GAC last weekend and raised much needed funds to help pay for a new mobile classroom at St Colman’s Primary School in Sheeptown.

WINNERS: The Saval Flatleys (L-R) Dermot Fearon, Sean Cull, Jarlath Cunningham, Michael McCarthy and Declan Kearney

The ‘Try To Dance’ extravaganza on Saturday June 22nd was a huge success and the Saval Flatleys walked away with the award for best act after Sean Cull and his group paid a hilarious homage to Riverdance and Gangnam Style!

Parents and past pupils from across Saval took to the stage to shake their stuff, re-enacting artists and songs including Beyonce, Queen, Thriller and Footloose in a great night’s craic at Saval GAC.

Commenting on the night’s success, St Colman’s Principal Adrian Savage said, “Try To Dance was a great success and we certainly exceeded expectations.

“I would like to thank all the parents who were involved, St Colman’s PTA, local businesses that sponsored the acts, the dancers, school teachers and everyone at Saval GAC for making the fundraiser such a great night.

“It was amazing to see the local community coming together to support the school and we now have money to put towards a much needed mobile classroom for the pupils at St Colman’s.

“I have to congratulate the winners, The Saval Flatelys, who stole the show and raised hundreds of pounds themselves on the night!”

Try To Dance was filmed and a DVD of the show will be available to purchase in the coming weeks. See www.savalgac.net for more details.
