  • Elevation dress making question for those with experience... -- C, 12:45:02 04/21/17 Fri
    Posted this on the main Irish dance board, but thought I would also ask within our region. We're at the beginning stages of having a dress designed and in between their emails to me and my replies ( deposit and measurements already sent in)… It's been days and days. They asked me a question a week ago and I replied the same day with an answer and a question. It's been a week. Wondering if I'm expecting too much. Thought it wouldn't be that big a deal doing this from overseas… But I'm second-guessing myself now. Love your thoughts.

    There was only one dancer from the Southern Region who recalled at Worlds today. I checked the SRO results page to see how she did at SRO - and she's not even listed as recalling. I'm assuming she didn't attend? Trying to figure out how you can WQ AND WM. Once you WQ you don't have to compete at Oireachtas? Honestly don't have any issues with this; just trying to figure it all out.

  • McGrath Academy Feis in US. CLRG wake up and stamp out the potential for corruption that this creates. More inside -- Con, 08:34:05 04/05/17 Wed
    This feis was held 1 week before their school AD is expected to give impartial and unbiased judgement on some of the best dancers in the world. The only conclusion I can come to is that the people associated with and attending the feis - dancers & AD's - are expecting some favourable treatment by getting in front of the AD judging the worlds. I hope the world AD is professional enough to see through the despicable behaviour of the serial offenders and rise above any politics!! World judges should not be allowed to host feiseanna once they have been announced as world judges.

  • Does anyone have an alternative to electrical tape that they have successfully used for taping the tops of heavies? I don't like the repeated exposure to the kids of the fire retardant they put on electrical tape and am looking for a good alternative. Thanks for any help! -- HS, 08:51:31 03/21/17 Tue

  • Teachers fees for majors -- Curious, 18:59:30 03/16/17 Thu
    Do all dance schools charge a coach/teacher's fee for majors? We have a fee for teaching that breaks down to about $200 an hour for a teacher. Is this a new thing And is it truly legit or our some teachers just trying to fund their own trips to the comps.at the expense of their students. Irish dance is really expensive, why another fee?

    So we were considering doing some Colorado feises... and during a conversation on the topic with some older dancers, they all talked about how badly they did in CO b/c of the altitude. I never considered this to be a problem we'd encounter, but I guess so. Anyone experience this? Hate to get there and feel sick from altitude sickness...thoughts?

  • Natural hair question for champs - inside -- CC, 11:55:27 02/28/17 Tue
    So our dancer is waiting for her dress to be made, and this is her first time doing a competition in all black. She wants to do natural hair - half up, half down, with a pouf. Question - for long hair - do you curl the ends or go straight? What's your reasoning? I'm trying to figure out what will look the most "clean" and polished. Curls have bounce, straight can look unfinished; so I'm in a quandary.

    Ideas? Opinions? Thanks all!

After ready these boards I'm pretty terrified of going to one of these things and being there all day. Would this one be a good first time for a younger dancer who doesn't have a ton of patience for waiting around? I understand that some waiting is normal - I guess what I'm trying to find out is, is this one of the ones that take up an entire day? Thanks in advance for any help/advice you can give.

    Hi, all! I'm heading down to Mexico next week for the Mexico City Feis, and I cannnnnnot wait! I'm just a little in the dark about how this works, since it's so different from the East Coast feiseanna I've attended.

    Does anyone know how big it is? How are awards run? Do they get many vendors (not going all the way to Mexico for a feis without picking up a t-shirt, ha!)? English is my first language, but I have a little Spanish in my back pocket -- will I understand everything that's happening around me?

    Because the feis employes a manual registration process, I can't see how many are in my competition, let alone who else is registered. There are also very few photos of past competitions for me to reference.

    Any and all insight and advice is appreciated :)
