On Saturday, April 8th 2023 , the function room of the Ard Rí House Hotel, Tuam, was transformed into a ballroom, as the Marian Choral Society (in association with Tuam Stars G.A.A.) took to the dance floor for their fundraiser ‘Dancing with the Stars!’ Seven weeks of rehearsals for our 24 dancing stars (under the strict supervision of choreographer Jay Molyneux) saw the most unlikely of dancers become Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers for one night only. From the Cha Cha to the Waltz to Hip-Hop, the town of Tuam saw it all! Marian Choral Society’s Hannah Rhattigan, along with her partner from Tuam Stars G.A.A. Mark Shallow, were our winners on the night, having scored a perfect score of 30 from the judges and winning over the audience vote with their very lively Jive. All members of the MCS production team got involved, with our new choreographer Jay Molyneux taking on the challenge of choreographing 12 unique dances, our director Ronan Lardner acting as MC for the night, and our musical director Shane Farrell leaving his baton at home and taking to the dance floor with his partner, Caroline, and the American Smooth. The Marian Choral Society would like to take this opportunity to thank the organising committee, our sponsors, members and all who supported the night.
