Dancers from the school have graced Morgan County with performances at the International Music Festival, Morgan Community College Gala and School for the Performing Arts recitals, earning rave reviews from locals.
Deemed one of Colorado’s finest schools of Irish dance, the Wick School was chosen by Westword Magazine as the best school to imitate infamous Irish Dancer Michael Flatley, known worldwide as ‘Lord of the Dance’. Students at the school hail from all over the Front Range and Denver-metro area.
However one talented dancer, Chelsea Hoy, enjoys local ties to Morgan County as her grandmother Judith and grandfather Wayne Bruch are long-time residents of Fort Morgan.
Wayne taught for 30 years at the Fort Morgan Middle School as a teacher and principal and is ecstatic to have traveled along with Chelsea to many of her competitions as far away as Ireland.
Many competitors from the Wick School have recently returned from an Oireachtas annual Irish dance competition in Belfast, Northern Ireland where Chelsea herself earned second place in the Western Regional Oireachtas in the under 16 girls championship.
Fellow Wick School performer Kinsey McNevin took first place at the international competition.
