  • Dongan Feis July 21 Update! -- Dongan Feis Secretary, 13:43:22 07/19/18 Thu
    Feis Schedule is posted on our website (donganfeis.org)

    Doors open at 8. Competitions begin promptly at 9.

    Please leave extra time while traveling - there is a film shoot going on that shouldn’t interfere with you all driving to the Plaza, but we’re familiar with Murphy’s Law!
    https://www.news10.com/news/local-news/film-production-to-close-roads-implement-detours-in-albany/1299258758

    Directions from the Holiday Inn Express in downtown Albany to Plaza are posted on the Feis website.

    Parking is $5 (have license ready - it's a state building).

    There is a $10 admission fee at the door for adults. You will receive a wristband.

    Bringing a dress to hang? Beat the line - fill out the form posted to our website. Please, cash only!

    No chairs, food, or drink inside the rooms with dancing. There is plenty of space to sit and eat outside the rooms.

    We'll update on Twitter and Facebook throughout the day - @donganfeis for Twitter

  • Awards Ideas for Feisanna -- Intrested to see your answers, 06:20:40 07/17/18 Tue
    What are your or your dancers favorite types of awards to receive at feisanna? Most feis still do medals or trophies, but are there any unconventional awards that anyone has really liked? If you had trophies and medals as your favorite, what kinds did you like best? Sashes or no?
    Trying to freshen up the awards at an upcoming feis and wanted the masses to give feed back! Thank you!

  • New Vanishing Lake Music Available -- Katie Grennan (TCRG), 09:18:26 06/15/18 Fri
    My latest release for Irish dancers - "The Vanishing Lakes Collection" - is available NOW for pre-sale on iTunes and will officially released on June 25th.

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-vanishing-lake-collection-bonus-tracks/1396893172

    *Reserve your download on iTunes NOW and instantly receive a download of a Presentation Reel track, perfect for class or dance outs!*

    As a TCRG myself, I've designed this album to make class more efficient, allowing dancers to focus on endurance and rhythm work.

    Tracks are laid out 4 different ways:
    ----**Entire Set TWICE in a row** (eliminates wasted time in class for those waiting in line to dance)

    ----**Full Step Part TWICE followed by Set TWICE** (for endurance runs)

    ----**Basic Set WITHOUT percussion** (encourages dancers to listen to the MUSIC itself, not the heavy beat that is embedded into most Irish dance tracks)

    ----**Basic Set** (for good, oldfashioned practice =))

    Thanks and hope you enjoy!

  • Fleur De Lis Feis - constructive criticism inside -- SRMOM, 14:14:03 06/10/18 Sun
    Fleur de Lis feis constructive criticism inside

    We went with several families in our school to the muggivan feis when it was held in Richmond during the renaissance festival two falls ago. That feis was a nightmare, a judge was late because of a flight (or had to leave early?), there was only one musician, the feis went so late that card had their lights shining onto the outdoor stages because the sun went down, etc. We all decided we’d give them another shot since I think I heard it was their first one - at the least it was our first time at a feis held by that school.
    We went to the Fleur de Lis feis today in ashburn and sadly ran into some similar issues. I’d like to provide some constructive criticism for future feisanna held by this school as several problem that happened last time seem to have not changed.
    1) more musicians and more stages
    2) change schedule to reflect similar format to feisanna that run quickly and smoothly - we had a young dancer who is used to dancing first thing in the morning whose four dances were dragged out to 4 hours because of the “all Reel, all SJ, all HP, all SN, all TJ” format. In addition, a more regular format of beginner - advanced beginner - novice - etc. would have helped clear out the place faster. As it was, the gym was full of most all of the same people from 8:00-12:00.
    3) stages could have been laid out 1-3 from L to R instead of from right to left. It confused many of the dancers there, not only ours.
    4) larger numbers for stages and printed on white paper with black ink
    5) stage hands who are experienced (we had a dancer whose last dance was near the end of the day who’s stage hand ushered her to the wrong group of dancers and had her dance in the wrong comp. That’s why number cards have their competition numbers on the back of them). I understand running a feis is a huge undertaking - but as this is not this school’s first feis, I’d imagine this would be an understood given.
    In addition, the volunteers changing the dance comp numbers had different styles of changing the papers that varied from stage to stage - one on stage 3 would sometimes have the “dancing now” paper on the top and the “dancing next” on the bottom - and sometimes would change them so far in advance that the dance on stage had no paper shown and the dancing next was at the top and the dance following was on the bottom. This was confusing as many dances today were no shows.
    6) concession stands that accepted card - the cell service was so bad in the school that most vendors couldn’t use their Squares.
    7) adjudicator on stage 3 (farthest left to entrance of gym), who tried to keep things moving, took (on at least 3 separate occasions) groups from another stage to take advantage of the music played - but no announcement was made. This was very confusing and the stage hands changing the dance comp papers were not in the know.

    On the plus side, the school was a large venue and was very nice. Plenty of room.

    Our dancers did very well today - this is not a sour grapes post or a vengeful message. I hope that their feisanna are more successful and smooth-running in the future.
