Two Texas virtual school students head to Ireland for World Championships

Dazzling costumes and big curly wigs are the first things packed for Audrey, 13, and her sister Madeline Lewis, 10, as they head to Ireland to compete in the World Championships for Irish Dancing. 

For Audrey, this isn't the first time she steps onto a stage to compete against thousands of Irish dancers. Last year she traveled to Scotland to showcase her talents. 

"There were seven judges. Normally there is only three at a local competition. You get up on the stage and everybody is just watching you, and you're like 'I can't mess up,'" Audrey said. 

Audrey and Madeline practice two hours a day, roughly six days a week, under the instruction of a certified Irish dance teacher and also attend McTeggart School of Irish Dance. Read more about these dancers here.
