Miss Iowa to ‘Riverdance’ on Miss America!
On June 11th, 2005, Irish Step dancer and reigning Miss Muscatine, Kay Pauszek was crowned Miss Iowa at North Scott High School in Eldridge, IA. For her talent, Kay performed a modern Irish dance to the “Hornpipe Tipping Reel.”
Kay will be competing for the title of Miss America this January 2006. She will be performing the same talent that she won the title of Miss Iowa with, but this time will be wearing an authentic Riverdance costume, loaned to her by Abhann Productions, the producers of Riverdance. The spectacular handmade costume will surely be a special addition to Kay’s performance!
Kay also attended a Riverdance show in Waukegon, Illinois on November 30th. Kay said that so far this has been one of the highlights of her year as Miss Iowa. Kay would also like to thank Riverdance for all of the support they have given her in the last 6 months with the costume and appearance in Waukegon.
