  • Hello, my daughter and I are planning to stop at the Outer Banks on our way home from Nationals. But I do not know which beach is best... -- Mom, 12:21:05 06/24/16 Fri
    We want something between quiet and not so quiet, bathrooms a must. A free beach would be wonderful too! Maybe even a board walk would be nice, especially for lunch and shopping, etc.I would also like to see the Hatteras Light House perhaps. I was looking at Nags Head and Rodanthe. I found info about Nags Head and beaches that offer a bathhouse, but nothing like that about Rodanthe.
    Any suggestions? 100 plus miles of beaches is a lot to choose from!
    I figure that if someone is familiar with the Outer Banks, they may know exactly what I should be looking for.
    We are staying outside of OBX in Plymouth so we will have anywhere from 1-2 hours of driving, depending on time of day, traffic and the location we end up at. We will only be there for one day, so I want to make sure I choose wisely.
    Thank you so much!

  • Show Your Support for Orlando at NANs! Silver Awareness Ribbons -- dm, 07:51:24 06/23/16 Thu
    The NANs host committee has authorized a charitable event organized by one of the #NAIDC2016 dancers. Please join the Irish Dance community in showing support for the victims, their families and first responders of the Pulse Nightclub shooting by wearing a silver awareness ribbon while at NANs.

    Awareness ribbons will be available for a $3 donation (or $20 team donation) in the convention center lobby starting Thursday evening. Net proceeds will be donated to the official Equity Florida GoFundMe account for Orlando victims. Our hope is to see everyone - dancers, teachers, parents and judges - proudly wearing a silver ribbon in a show of support for the people of Orlando!

    Also, our adult champ cup competition is filling nicely. We will NOT cap the adult championship. But don't get left behind!

    Hope to see many of you in September here in Lancaster!

  • Question regarding Nationals qualification...To qualify as an OC dancer, one must have qualified for OC BEFORE May 1st? In other words, you can't get your first 1st in early May, get the 2nd in Mid-May while dancing for a school in Indiana, transfer to a school in Tampa in June, but get your new TC to push your name through? -- The dancer has been indiscreet about this at the studio & ruffled feathers, 17:36:46 06/16/16 Thu

  • Everything will be ok, just be patient and let them sort everything out. Honest mistakes happen they are all human, Im sure the comittee will update soon. -- Its ok! INSIDE*, 06:15:19 06/01/16 Wed
    Just a different perspective! Bashing the hotel does nothing but make us look barbaric, same with bashing the committee. Im sure the SR committee is working hard to find their mistake and correct it. None of this was intentionally done. They are human and things happen. There are several hotels around the area within walking distance. There is more then enough room for everyone.

  • Moving to Durham, NC from Colorado -- Katienrachelrmystars (Curious), 14:22:05 05/31/16 Tue
    Hi, looking for some information on Irish dance schools in/ around Durham, NC....we are moving to the area for my husbands job end of July and would like to get the ball rolling on finding a new school so my girls don't have to go to long without dancing! I have 2 daughters, one in advanced beginner u7 and another in prelim u10. I know that there are several competitive schools in the area but wanted some honest feedback , and unbiased opinions about which is best. We are looking for a competitive atmosphere with a nurturing approach. I welcome all feedback good and bad! Thanks so much!

  • Is anyone else using Rising Star for a new dress for Nationals? It seems to be taking an absorbitant amount of time to get the dress made and I'm afraid we won't have the dress in time. This is our first time ordering from overseas, so maybe I just expect too much? -- Stressed M.A.I.D., 13:08:46 05/31/16 Tue
