MEQUON TRINITY IRISH DANCER PLACED AT WORLD IRISH DANCING CHAMPIONSHIPS - Trinity wins unprecedented two solo world titles for United States

April 4, 2013

Milwaukee area’s own Trinity Irish Dancers have won an unprecedented two solo Gold Medals at the World Irish Dancing Championships, held March 24-April 1, 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts. A local dancer placed at the competition.

Maggie Nowakowski (age 17) of Mequon, Wisc., placed 4th out of 177 competitors. Maggie won a gold medal in team dancing as well as a bronze medal in solo dancing at the 2011 World Irish Dancing Championships.

Peter Dziak (15) of Villa Park, IL also accomplished a historic "three-peat" by winning his third consecutive World Title. Tyler Schwartz (22) of Libertyville, IL realized a lifelong dream by winning the coveted senior men’s World Title on the final night of the Championships.

Much of this year’s success can be attributed to Dublin born, head coach and choreographer Dolores Taaffe. “Winning two solo titles in one week is fantastic," says Taaffe. "I am thrilled to be a part of the Trinity team. It is an institution with a vision that makes anything possible. Maggie and all the Trinity dancers are an absolute dream to work with. One is nicer than the next." Dolores recently moved to Elmhurst, IL from Ireland and is considered to be one of the industry’s finest coaches.

Trinity eclipsed their own record by placing a total of 17 dancers at the top of solo competitions this year. Trinity now holds an impressive 15 World Titles for the United States, including more team titles than all other North American Schools.
