Annais Beaupré (top of the podium), of the Bernadette Short School of Irish Dancing, placed first in the Preliminary Championship for girls under 15 years of age. Cassidy McDougall of the Young Academy of Irish Dance was second, Naomi Trueman of the Ottawa Irish Dance Company placed third, and Molly Monette of the Sue Fay Healy Irish Dance School was fourth.

Some 200 dancers from eastern Canada and the northern United States were on stage showing off their talent at the sixth annual Vieux-Québec Feis held at Séminaire Saint-François on Sept. 28. Ranging in age from four years to adult, and from beginner to championship, they competed on four stages in soft shoe and hard shoe, while proud parents, family and friends looked on.
