  • Can anyone post the list of SR TCs who voted in favor of masters? -- We need transparency, 11:23:16 05/22/22 Sun
    The Masters division rules have ruined adult teams at our small school. Can't make an 8-hand because a few of our dancers placed in a prelim 25+ years ago. I'd like the list of teachers/schools in the Southern Region who voted in favor of this. Surely a formal vote was taken. Why aren't the results publicly available? Thank you in advance.

  • Looking at doing the Atlanta feis 6/11-12 - -- DM, 16:55:09 05/07/22 Sat
    I went to look at the hotel block and there were no rooms available. At this point there is hardly anyone registered, so it seems weird. I went to the feis website to contact the organizer, and the email link is not working. Hoping to find a contact that can help me, or do I need to contact the hotel directly?

I have a persistent Irish dance injury that I'd like a second opinion on and hope someone has a personal recommendation. There are tons of Irish dance schools in the DMV region so I'm hoping there are specialists in the region who has experience with what we put our bodies through. Thank you!

    Thank you all to organize such amazing feises!

  • Parents/Teachers plastering dancers all over social media -- Annoyed, 16:47:25 02/10/22 Thu
    Worlds is right around the corner and wouldn't you know, certain parents/teachers are plastering their youth dancers all over social media. Seriously, it's a dance competition not a popularity contest. Are they trying to get facial recognition so the adjudicators will know who their dancers are? It's sickening. All these "parent run" Instagram accounts posting videos and pictures of dancers in new costumes. We know what you are trying to do. These are kids. Let them dance and have fun. Stop making it about you wanting them to win.

    I’ve heard the Southern Region was the instigator of this “masters” category, where even if a kid danced until age 10 and managed to place in prelim, they have to go into a category that separates them from other dancers. Like a purgatory. No Ceili with people they can enjoy mimosas with.

    And you go anywhere else and you can’t compete, right?

    Who brought this forward?
