North American Open Irish Dance Championships

Over the past decade we have seen the rapid growth of CRN in North America. With this growth came the North American Open Championships being upgraded to the same status as the Irish Open Championships.

The North American Opens syllabus now offers Awards for every grade and figure championships to cater to the large number of dancers in the Region. Dancers from all over the World have travelled to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC, New York, Las Vegas, Philadelphia,and most recently Orlando, Florida to compete in this event.

The North American Open Championships are run by a committee of teachers that reside in both Ireland and the USA.  The NAO Committee is pleased to announce that the 2018 North American Open Championships will be held in the Baltimore, MD and the 2019 Championships will be held in Nashville, TN.  More information to follow soon.

If you are an Open Platform school or dancer and you would like more information about the NAO Championships and/or an entry form, please email Lena McGinley, Secretary NAO Committee.
