South Africa is the 2022 World Champion title holder of Irish Dance, thanks to the talented dancers from the Robinson Dance Studio.


Belfast, Northern Ireland (14 April 2022) – The young ladies from the Robinson Dance Studio have been flying the South African flag high in Northern Ireland and earned the 2022 World Championship title of Irish Dance. The Robinson Dance Studio specialises in Highland and Irish Dance.

The young ladies ventured all the way to Belfast, Ireland, for the 50th World Irish Dancing Championships, which made its return after two years due to the Covid-19 restrictions. The championship was staged by An Coimisiún le Rincí Gaelacha, which translates to the Commission of Irish Dancing. The Commission is the biggest and oldest governing body of Irish dancing worldwide.

The event is often referred to as the Olympics of Irish Dance so having competitors back together after so long was a real treat. The dance style is performed by solo dancers as well as incredible group performances. It is a social dance so being together is essential.

More than 3,500 dancers signed up to partake in the massive world championship event. The Robinson Dance Studio took 15 talented over for the event and came back as world champions!

Meet the 2022 World Irish Dancing Champions, all the way from South Africa!
