Christina Deacy, TCRG
Chrissy fell in love with Irish dance at age 8. Under the direction of Karl Drake, TCRG, she achieved success on regional, national, and international levels. In 2011, Chrissy won the Southern Region Championships, placed 16th at Nationals and placed 36th at Worlds! After hanging up her competitive shoes, Chrissy earned her TCRG with Honors in 2013.
