  • Dance Schools in El Paso? -- K, 16:48:01 09/20/18 Thu
    Are there any schools in, or around El Paso, Texas or even in New Mexico? My husband is military and is getting stationed there, and I want to get my daughter into lessons. I'm from the MAR, so I know really nothing about SR schools location wise.

  • Spray-on hair color question-- -- Wig Mom, 06:25:54 09/19/18 Wed
    My DD wears a blond bun wig. Her natural color is blond, but slightly darker. Not a whole lot of her natural hair shows once the wig is on, but enough so I have to spray a little. I have been using the stuff they sell at feisianna, but it is coming out too brassy and glittery. Does anyone have suggestions on a spray they like, or another way to "match" color? Please don't suggest a darker wig. Yes, I know wigs are ridiculous, but it is what it is and I am trying to work with it!

  • 2018 Southern Regional Oireachtas -- QuickFeis, 08:57:41 08/28/18 Tue
    Dear Southern Regional Dancers!

    I am Bettina, the owner of QuickFeis, and I am very honored and excited to have been selected to work with your regional Oireachtas again this year.

    In order for registration to go smoothly, may I ask anyone who plans to attend this year's Oireachtas to please make sure to have a QuickFeis account. Teachers will only be able to register dancers who have a valid QuickFeis account. If you already have a QuickFeis account, you are all set!

    If you don't have a QuickFeis account, please:
    🔹 Go to www.quickfeis.com
    🔹 Click on the SUPPORT tab and make sure to follow all the instructions (including how to add competitors to your account - even if you are a single competitor within your family, you will need to do this extra step).

    Each dance family should get their own account. When you add your competitor (dancer) be sure the following are absolutely correct:
    🔹 Name (as you want it on your award)
    🔹 Date of birth
    🔹 Gender
    🔹 School name - this can be tricky at times because there are other schools with similar names around - so please ask your teacher which school you should select. If your school is not on our list, please email me at quickfeis@gmail.com and I will add it to my list.

    Oireachtas PROGRAM BOOKS - Big change this year!
    🔹 Each family will be charged $15 for a PDF version of the program book available starting on Thursday November 29, 2018 at noon on the QuickFeis website.
    🔹 The program book will be in PDF format and can be downloaded on any mobile device over WiFi or any data plan.
    🔹 PRINTED copies of the program book will be sold separately on the QuickFeis website for $22.50 and must be purchased before Nov 15 online.
    🔹 Only pre-purchased books will be printed and handed out at the event starting on Thursday November 29, 2018 - exact location will be announced on the SRO website and the QuickFeis website.
    🔹 No additional PRINTED copies of the program book will be available for purchase at the event.

    I'm looking forward to another exciting Oireachtas and to seeing you again :)

    Bettina
    QuickFeis

  • Please Consider Supporting Southern Region Feiseanna -- Irish Channel Feis & NOLA Feis, 10:33:53 08/27/18 Mon
    Please consider supporting a new feis in the Southern Region.

    The Irish Channel Feis has been a fixture in the southern region for the last five years. This casual feis is all about the dancing - no dress, and no wig needed. Every dancer will get a t-shirt with their registration to wear with any black bottom (skirt, shorts, pants, etc.) of their choosing. This feis is part of Irish Fest New Orleans, and competitors and their families get to enjoy a day of great Irish festivities. Headliners for this year's festival include the Grammy Award winning Lost Bayou Ramblers.

    This year, we've taken it even further and added a back-to-back feis on Sunday - NOLA Feis. This feis allows dresses and wigs.

    Both feiseanna have second chances, so if you do both, you will have 4 chances to qualify for your dances!

    Both events will take place in the historic Kingsley House (1600 Constance Street in New Orleans).

  • BACK-TO-BACK SEPTEMBER FEIS WEEKEND IN MINNESOTA! -- Mary T., Co-Chair, The Minnesota Feis 2018, 19:52:11 08/20/18 Mon
    On Saturday, SEPTEMBER 29, we invite you to join us at the St. Paul RiverCentre on the banks of the Mississippi River in beautiful downtown St. Paul, Minnesota, for THE MINNESOTA FEIS 2018 (visit our web site at http://www.theminnesotafeis.org/ for great information). And then stick around for the ST. PAUL AUTUMN FEIS, on Sunday, SEPTEMBER 30 http://www.idpamn.org/

    Registration is through http://www.feisworx.com/ . Competition on Saturday will start at 8:30 AM (opening ceremonies at 8:15 AM); Sunday’s competition will begin at 8:00 AM. The Championship stage will proceed from OLDEST to YOUNGEST dancers.

    We are offering Trophy Special Set Dance competitions that are open to BOTH Preliminary Champ dancers and Prizewinner dancers who are preparing dances for the Mid-America Oireachtas. For those in U9, it will be traditional set; U10 and above will be non-traditional set.

    Our dance adjudicators for this year:
    Kerry Broderick, New York
    Colleen Coyle Kelly, Pennsylvania
    Michael Patrick Gallagher, Arizona
    Martin Percival, Colorado
    Heather Timm, Ohio
    John Timm, Ohio

    **The treble reel is one of the most fun things to do at a feis, and we are again scheduling these to make participation easier: Champ treble reels will be held throughout the day, and Novice/Prizewinner treble reels will be right at the end of the scheduled lunch break. All treble reel proceeds from The Minnesota Feis will go to support Breast Cancer Research. NEW THIS YEAR at the St. Paul Autumn Feis is a Hornpipe Special dance in memory of Áine O’Shea. Proceeds from this special will be sent to St. Francis Hospice in Blanchardstown in Dublin for the love and care they gave to her in her final days. We encourage everyone to register for both these specials that support such worthy causes!

    Admission is FREE to the public, so bring your family and friends. Also, if you are bringing someone who is a non-dancer, but SINGS OR PLAYS AN INSTRUMENT (or does these in addition to dance!) there is competition for them as well! Just use the Feisworx system to register. Arts and Soda Bread are in there, too.

    In addition to “feising,” there are many things to see and do in St. Paul, Minneapolis, and the surrounding area, including:
    --We were among the last to find out, but Justin Timberlake is in town, and not just to see his Minnesota in-laws! There are still tickets available for his Sept. 28 and 29 shows.
    --The Science Museum of Minnesota https://www.smm.org/, across the street from the RiverCentre.
    --If you have younger ones, the newly remodeled Minnesota Children’s Museum in downtown St. Paul https://mcm.org/
    --After a massive restoration effort, the re-opening of the Minnesota State Capitol building, with the second largest self-supported marble dome in the world, free tours http://www.mnhs.org/capitol/activities/tours
    --The Cathedral of St. Paul, National Shrine of the Apostle Paul, on the hill overlooking the RiverCentre. Named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, the cathedral offers daily masses, and is open to visitors for sightseeing.
    --St. Paul’s Lower Town is a rapidly growing area with shops, eateries, and the recently restored and re-opened major train hub, Union Depot. Restored to its 1920s grandeur, it’s worth a stop http://www.uniondepot.org/
    --The nearby Mall of America https://www.mallofamerica.com/ with its vast array of shopping, dining, hotel, and entertainment experiences, including the indoor theme park Nickelodeon Universe and Sea Life Minnesota aquarium https://www2.visitsealife.com/minnesota/ only 15 minutes from the feis venue. NEW THIS YEAR: The water park hotel next to the Mall of America is now Great Wolf Lodge! https://www.greatwolf.com/minnesota
    --One of the gems of St. Paul is Como Park, with the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, one of the few free zoos in the United States (free parking, too!): http://www.comozooconservatory.org/
    --Over in Minneapolis, we have the Mill City Museum, which has a very “explosive” elevator ride and great views of the Stone Arch Bridge and Mississippi River from its cantilevered viewing platform: http://www.millcitymuseum.org/
    --The Walker Art Center Sculpture Garden in Minneapolis, with its famous Cherry on the Spoon (okay, it’s Spoonbridge and Cherry, but nobody calls it that). There is also a giant blue chicken now, which we haven’t quite figured out… https://walkerart.org/visit/garden
    --Take a cruise on a Mississippi Riverboat with the historic Padelford Riverboats https://riverrides.com/ or along the scenic St. Croix River at the Minnesota-Wisconsin border with the St. Croix Boat & Packet Co. http://www.stillwaterriverboats.com/

    To avoid the Timberlake price hikes, we have created a hotel block at the new Delta by Marriott hotel, just 12 minutes from the venue. The booking link is available on our website http://www.theminnesotafeis.org/area-hotels.html We are also trying to arrange a few others!

    Lots of fun for everyone, we hope you can join us!

  • Houston Feis -- Out of Region, 08:06:17 07/24/18 Tue
    We are considering attending the Houston Feis and saw they had double prelims. How do they run this? Are they usually back to back or one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. Also what time do they typically end? Thanks.

  • NATIONS CAP FEIS -- gigi, 08:48:55 07/23/18 Mon
    Unfortunately, we will no longer be attending this feis due to MAJOR problems with the prelim stage! Way too small and very dangerous the way it was set up! EVERY comp had a dancer falling VERY hard and sometimes on their face! Judges looked very concerned as well. Very sad as this is a wonderful feis otherwise. Something needs to be fixed here.

  • 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.
