  • American Pride Feis - New Room Block Added -- APF Venue Chair, 13:35:57 07/29/14 Tue
    Gaylord Opryland informed us that we keep selling out of our room block, especially on Saturday night. They still have plenty, but have to add a new group each time they run out. If you try to book a room, and it shows that they aren't available, please email me before you give up on trying. They tell me that there are plenty.

  • Stage 7 Estimate/Set Dance Estimate (823) -- SRMama, 19:52:31 07/26/14 Sat
    Estimating a stage schedule myself for the first time (Nations Cap, Stages 7 and 2). Don't know if I've allowed the correct amount of time. First up are music (recording 40 bars of music then playing it back and dancing to recorded music). I allowed 6 minutes (3 to record, 2 to dance and one for movement on/off the stage). Next up are prelims. I allowed 2 minutes for each SS and HS dances for prelim. Do I need to allow more or less time? Syllabus didn't say which was first or how many dancers, so I went with the standard 2 at a time/3 at a time. Does this look correct through U12?

    Nations Capital Feis Stage 7 Estimated Schedule

    Competition Music & Dance Num Competitors: 5 Minutes: 30 Start: 8:00am End: 8:30am

    Gaylord Opryland tells us that we have oversold our room block already. Good news is that they are still offering rooms at the APF rate. Go to AmericanPrideFeis.com for the hotel link. If more than 2 occupants, register for 2 and add your children later as you enter your information. Feis rate is good for up to four people.

  • Feis San Antonio -- MidAm Mom, 21:29:16 07/23/14 Wed
    Thinking about coming from out of region to Feis San Antonio. Daughter is U16 OC and has a long school break first weekend of October. MIL lives a couple-hour drive from San Antonio, has a condo there, and became positively ecstatic when I mentioned that this feis could be a thing that we would do. It would involve airfare, which is not astronomical (just checked), and that MIL would probably pay for. I know nothing however about this feis and have limited experience with the Southern Region. Can anyone give any insight toward helping me decide? I do not need a perfectly run feis AT ALL, but is it relatively well run so that I could tell MIL that we would be able to at least have dinner together that evening? Champs oldest to youngest or youngest to oldest? We would likely fly out the next day. What is the venue like, i.e. can it accommodate one, perhaps two, well-meaning-but-cranky older folks? MIL met us in St. Louis years ago for a competition (Daughter was PC at the time) and was disappointed at the time-waiting versus time-watching-grandchild ratio (we warned her far ahead of time that this was likely if not certain), and her husband was dismayed by the chaos and confusion (he has no biological children and was unprepared despite description of "controlled chaos"). I love my MIL and her husband dearly and would love for them to see DD dance again, and I am thrilled that they are considering this even though they were less than impressed by their experience in St. Louis (no fault to St. Louis--people unfamiliar with feising generally have no clue). I guess I am asking if Feis San Antonio is typical (MIL and spouse can just deal) or is it the type of feis that only people who find it convenient can love?

  • Southern Region Feis Vendor Business For Sale -- Not A Scam, 07:47:46 07/21/14 Mon
    Not sure why this was removed, but it is not a joke or a slam a someone. This is a legitimate offer. I have been offered a position with a company that will no longer allow me to feis as often as I would need to keep customers serviced properly. I am not in a huge rush and have time to find the right person and will train and give support as needed. This is not Emerald or Fab Rince/Callahans. Approximately 17 feis per year plus studio calls and internet sales. Must be willing to sign a disclosure statement before details and financials are discussed. It is a great way to feis and make money, too. Since most of the feisanna are in the deep south, someone in the Georgia Metro or northern Florida area would have the least amount of travel involved. Ideal for someone with a small business background. Email irishdance_business@yahoo.com

    First time I can recall dancing grades on stage after PC comp. Would I use the Peter Smith feis estimator to figure the time for the PC comps to be over? I am not familiar with PC but it looks like from the syllabus that PC is 2 rounds (hs/ss) Not sure if they dance 2 or 3 at a time.

    I am good calculating the grade dances from when PC is over, so if someone could give me a an estimate of when the PC comps would be over on stage 7, I would really appreciate it.

  • Nation's Capital Feis schedule question -- curious, 14:09:23 07/07/14 Mon
    I know the schedule will be out from the committee in a few weeks, but trying to plan ahead of time. I'm wondering if anyone remembers how they did the grades competitions in prior years. Is it by dance (all reels in a row, going through all of the ages and levels) or by age/level (all FF, then Beginners, then Novice - each doing the sets of 7 main dances)? Appreciate any and all info!!

    Thanks!

    a) How and when do we let the organizers know what dance will be performed at the exhibition.
    b) Does the transportation to the exhibition (provided by the Feis) include parents, or just dancers?
    Thank you!

  • College Irish Dance Directory -- Zack Warshaw, TCRG, 13:03:03 06/23/14 Mon
    Hello all,
    After the success of the first two Intercollegiate Irish Dance Competitions at Villanova and the University of Dayton this year, it is the goal to expand and further support this movement in the years to come. We're currently trying to assemble a central directory of active Irish dance clubs at Universities around the world to make dissemination of information, collaboration and communication easier among the groups.
    I'm asking for a representative from each active Irish dance club to send the following information to the e-mail address attached:

    Name of school
    Current captain/contact
    Current e-mail contact
    Location of school

    If the leadership is not yet established for next year for your club, just send the other information, and I'll follow up later once that's been decided.
    Also, if you know the contact info for a club that is not your own, you're welcome to send that on--I realise not everyone reads these boards, but we do want as comprehensive a list as possible.

    Thanks for your help--we're looking forward to very big and exciting things for Collegiate Irish Dance!

    Zack Warshaw, TCRG

  • While we are all waiting patiently for the schedule for NAN's please consider volunteering in the consignment room -- Alison, 10:50:37 06/16/14 Mon
    The “Hock your Frock” room at NAN’s aims to help sellers connect with buyers in a secure setting. I know leaving your beautiful dress in a supervised dress room can be scary, especially if like mine, your dress is white! Our goal this year is to entertain only serious buyers, to oversee each potential buyers’ experience to ensure dresses remain pristine by pairing up buyers with a volunteer. Browsing and “killing time” will not be allowed as access to the room itself will be monitored. For this to be a success we need your help. Volunteer in the dress resale room and you can leave a dress for free!

    Shifts are as follows:
    Wednesday July 2nd- to Saturday July 5th- 8:30-12:30pm or 12:30-5:00pm
    Sunday July 6th – 8:30-12:00noon or 12:00-4:00pm

    Even if you don’t have a dress to sell please consider lending a hand for a few hours.

    If you are putting a dress in the resale room please bring the following:
    A clear plastic bag to go over the dress and a sale info sheet to attach to the dress giving price, designer and what comes with it . Bring only the dress! Keep the shawl, headband, bloomers etc with you so they don’t get lost. The form you need to fill in is in the downloads section of the blog as well as my email and cell number. Cost is $30 cash Canadian funds (US accepted at par) for one day or the whole week. This is the same price as last year.

    Thank you and see you in 2 weeks!

  • Happy Fathers Day to all the Dance Dads -- Gina-Foster, 13:31:48 06/15/14 Sun
    You know who you are

    -- the guys who buy electrical/gaffers/duck tape in bulk but can never find any to do a home repair ...

    -- the guys who know WAYYYYY more than they will admit about the price, proper placement and best adhesive for Swarovski Crystals
    *** the truly advanced can converse and debate the inherent value of the Swarovski over Czech and the characteristics of the AB and various Shadings of the colors

    -- the guys who not only can spell Oireachtas but plan their vacation yearly around it and the NANs and the Worlds and the AI ....

    -- the guys who put more miles on the family van driving to practice, workshops and feisianna than all the other mileage for the year

    -- the guys who traded their Golf Foursome for a U16 Four Hand

    -- the guys who regardless of their personal hairline can put up hair and get the wig on with the best of them (without using a staple gun)

    -- the guys who act as Sherpas, Bankers, Chauffeurs, Medics, sports therapists, sports psychologists, shoe tapers, lace tie-ers, dress zippers, and coach for their Irish princesses/princes (regardless of ethnicity)

    -- The guys who get thanks for nothing... blame for everything ... and general static about life in general


    ***Here is all the THANK YOU's, the WOW THAT WAS NICE OF YOU's and the I COULDN'T DO THIS WITHOUT YOU's that you are owed the whole year in and out.

  • Are you getting a new dress for Nationals and haven't put your current one up for sale yet? -- In the market, 12:48:47 06/12/14 Thu
    We're in the market for a new (used) dress and haven't seen anything that fits the bill on the usual sites. DD is a PU12 dancer who has a broad rib cage, but short-ish legs, so we often have trouble finding a dress. Anything that fits lengthwise, doesn't fit in the chest and vice verse. To that end, we're looking for something with around these measurements that may not be up for sale yet. We're in no rush - looking to have something before we start feising again in mid-August (taking the summer off).

    Chest - 31.5"
    Waist - 28.5-29"
    Dropped Waist - 30-32"
    Full length - 29-30"
    Shoulders - 13.5"
    Arms - 20"

  • Came from out of region to enjoy Hurley Feis (thanks, feis committee!) but a question about scoring. We've never used Feisweb before. DD's printed results only included first two rounds, not the set. Are sets not counted towards overall placements? Or maybe they do count but they were just not included in the printed results? I'm wondering if that is a Southern region thing or a Feisweb thing. -- thanks!, 05:40:27 05/26/14 Mon

    Very enjoyable Feis. Great venue on the grades side- didn't venture over to the other gym. On suggestion since many onlookers couldn't keep a respectable distance behind the judges- rope a little area behind their chairs. Some judges looked like they had to hold papers close to the vest so peering eyes couldn't see what they were writing!

    Thinking about coming out of region for it (in MAR). We lived in DC for 4 years and think it might be fun! What is the exhibition at the capital like? It says everyone gets an award- what are they like- medals or trophies. It is awfully expensive and I am just trying to see if it is worth it. We would have our own car- so transportation to there isn't a problem. Also how does the rest of the Feis run? I am a mom to a young prelim dancer- so the supplementary competitions seem fun- there are many more than I am used to. Thanks!!!

    We will be visiting non-ID relatives in NC and pick up the June feis in Charolette. We have never feissed outside the MidWest nor a feis under 800 dancers and dances in the grades. How many stages? How late does it usually run? Any insights on differences between the regions (more/less makeup, lining up,etc.)?

  • Montreal NANS hotels....I truly don't understand why... -- Nancy, 05:20:42 05/03/14 Sat
    Other attending families aren't upset by the poor organization of the NANS. The restrictive hotel room rules make it very difficult and expensive for any family with more than one dancer and one adult. The organizers keep touting that there are plenty of king size rooms available but the hotels will only allow two people to stay in a king size room. So that only works if mom takes one daughter dancer who then has to share a bed with mom the night before her competition...not ideal.

    The Irish dance world tends to be so insulated and protective that no one is willing to take a step back and say how could we coordinate these events better? What do other organizations do?

  • Nationals photo opportunity -- Danisnaps Photography, 16:01:10 05/02/14 Fri
    Hi, I'm a photographer and 15 year (Southern Region!) Irish dancing veteran who's going to Nationals this year. I'm offering something that to my knowledge has never been offered before: a personalized, on-location photo shoot the day you dance. I follow you / your dancers through preparations of getting ready to dance, take pictures with your friends and family, and be your personal paparazzi for the day.

    The price is $250US and you will get 30-40 professionally edited images (candid, photojournalism-style shots as well as posed portraits) that are unlike anything you’ve ever received in your Irish dancing career. A deposit of $150US is required to hold your place in my schedule. I'm especially interested in rounding out my portfolio with more wee ones, boys and teams.

    Please check out my website for more details and examples of previous work:
    https://danisnaps.squarespace.com/blog/2014/5/1/north-american-irish-dance-championships-in-montreal-qc

    I am so trying not to be a crazy dance mom, but I am just wondering about scores from a Feis yesterday. Prelim DD got scores from 2 judges: 1,1,2,5. Other judge was 7,8. I totally understand judge's preference and subjectivity and would leave it at that. But the written feedback didn't seem to relate to DD's dance: watch left arm (she has never had arm problems). End reel on time (she did, or would probably not gotten those other firsts), don't lean forward or look down (I didn't see her do that, and again that's not one of her issues). I did see another dancer with those concerns, however, so was wondering how common would it be for results to get keyed wrong?
