Ms. Reily started dancing at 5 years old with the McGinley School of Irish Dance. Her parents signed her up thinking it would be a great way for her to learn more about her culture and thought it would be a good hobby for her for a few years. 13 years and two trips to Ireland later, it was way more than a little kid hobby. She competed in various competitions around the states and in Ireland.
In 2012, Reily competed at the first Cumann Rince Náisiúnta World Championships in Wexford, Ireland and placed 5th in her age group. She reached the highest level within her organization, Croabh Grad, in 2013 when she won the regional championships in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Reily also earned the National and Regional titles in 2014. After this, she decided to focus more on performing and less on competing.
She had the opportunity to perform with the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra and Ronan Tynan, and various regional events.
"Irish dancing gave me so many amazing opportunities, helped me gain confidence, and taught me that hard work pays off. And, I can't wait to see new Irish Dancers experience the same things at ALL STARS."
