  • How do other schools deal with that "one dance family?" You all know - the dancer that "thinks" they are the best in the world, acts like the best in the world, talks like the best in the world and the parents, who are probably worse. They all talk non stop about how they aren't treated like the best in the world. Problem is, although talented, not even the best dancer at their school. The dancers shy away and so do most of the parents.Any tips on how to deal with this all day, every day, every week?

  • Pilates for Irish Dancers Workshop in DC! Presented by CELTICORE - Driving distance from MD/VA/PA -- Celticore Pilates, 17:53:50 05/02/18 Wed
    Attention all DC/MD/VA-area Irish dancers:

    Sending along details about a new PILATES FOR DANCERS class series, which will be held at the Fuse Pilates studio (at Foxhall Square shopping center, right near American University in Northwest DC). The class will be led by, Joe Duffey (Celticore Pilates founder, NASM-CPT, a former dancer with RIVERDANCE and cast member on Broadway with Michael Flatley's LORD OF THE DANCE, & also a Pilates instructor at Fuse Pilates).

    We are introducing this special 5-week workshop series, beginning THIS SATURDAY, May 5th, 3:30-4:45pm.

    In order to provide additional effective cross-training for Irish dancers, the class will introduce dancers to classical Pilates movements as well as strategic elements of the Fuse Method in order to target technical aspects needed for dancers of all styles. It should be a great way to bring together DC area dancers of all styles (we are expecting some dancers from Washington Ballet and other academies as well!)

    The class is suitable for dancers of all ages & skill levels, and will work on elements such as TURNOUT, CROSSING, POSTURE, CORE STRENGTH and so much more! The class will be especially beneficial for dancers training for NANs!

    There are a limited number of spots available, so please sign up ASAP! Dancers can also drop in for any number of the class sessions.

    ***Sign up at this link: http://bit.ly/pilatesfordancers ***

    This is an amazing opportunity to get to work with Joe Duffey in person, in a fun, supportive atmosphere. Note that the workshop is strictly fitness / Pilates instruction. Also, there is a Starbucks in the entrance in the mall which is a great place for parents to hang out during the workshop! Mats & all equipment are provided.

    Please feel free to e-mail the Celticore team at info@celticore.com with any questions!

    Hope to see you there!

  • The "Real" Cost of running a feis- See inside for the break down -- Retired feis chair, 08:14:01 05/01/18 Tue
    Let me start this off by first thanking every studio that puts in the time and effort to get a feis up and running. This is no easy task with lots of work hours from everyone, all of whom are volunteers. Hopefully by the end of this, those of you that complain about the cost will realize the investment that is put into these things and have a greater respect of what is involved. If you are teaching your dancer that it is all about the trophy and winning then they are missing out on real point of competition- getting feedback and gaining the experience of being on a stage with other dancers that share their love of Irish Dancing.
    So here are the rough breakdowns:

    Feis Hotel or Location- $250-1000+ per room
    Today more hotels are charging higher fees for room use especially if room blocks are not filled. Yes we can all use our points and stay somewhere cheaper but by doing so, the feis then has to pay a higher rate for each of the rooms they are using. In the past, filling a room block was the main requirement but this is no longer the case. Hotels are charging room fees and requiring room block to be filled.

    Judges- (+$10,500/feis) thats $500 and up per judge/day plus their hotel, food, transportation, air flight. (roughly $1500/judge) More if you flew someone in from far away.
    Everyone wants a new judge to see their kid dance so that means paying no less than 7 judges to attend your feis. Have to have back ups in case someone gets sick or can't come last minute. Something that every feis has had to deal with.

    Tabulations company- Contract fee $2-$5 and up per dancer Most companies now charge this fee during registration. Some feisanna add this as part of family fee.

    Stages- $3500-20,000 and up
    Love those big stages with plenty of room of your dancer to show off their kicks. Trust me the feis paid out the nose for them, especially if they are elevated. Some studios have tried to save costs by investing in their own but even this requires man hours and storage space to keep these. Those stages don't build themselves.

    Medals- $2-7+/each (roughly $2000-4000 per feis)
    Medals are not cheap especially the good ones. But even the "cheaper" ones will cost the average feis about $3 each.

    Trophies- $8-$30+/each (Roughly $10,000-25,000/feis)
    Cost about $1 per inch (so 16inch trophy about $16)

    Champ Awards- Roughly $10-$40 per item to be awarded
    This can vary greatly per feis and their budget. Beleek, Lenox, crystal, etc isn't cheap. Add in those much loved sashes at $8-15 each and your kid has just earned back your entry fee in prizes.

    Alternate Prizes (versus trophies)Cost $3-10/item
    This can vary as some feisanna try to follow their theme which is quite clever and puts a unique spin on the prize that your dancer goes home with. Funny thing is more parents complain about prizes and completely overlook the happiness in his/her kids expression at getting something different.

    Programs- Cost about $1-3 dollars per program
    This cost is usually added into the family fee or billed seperately.

    Admission Fee- Roughly $15-25 per family
    This fee again helps to offset other expenses such as programs, office supplies,etc.

    There are so many other details but I wanted to get the main costs put out there for people to see and gain a better appreciation for the costs of running a feis. Most costs are incurred before the close of registration and come out of the studio's pocket.

    As a dance community, we need to support these studios that are taking the time and effort to put on a feis. We need to recognize that they are doing this out of love for Irish dance not out of love of making a profit. If Feisanna were sources of profits, then every studio would be trying to do them not just a handful.
    And lastly, feisanna are run by unpaid parent and family volunteers. They need and deserve your respect. They are doing a tough job and many of them for the very first time ever. We all know the first day is rough and it can be hard to get up and running. By the second day, everyone, including the beginner dancers, are pros. If you are a new parent to dance, hit up other parents on how things work versus asking the stage people. They are busy enough just trying to make sure everyone gets to the right place. As parents, we are setting the example for our children on how to behave in stressful situations and how to treat others in those situations. You would be surprised how many dancers apologize for the behavior of their parents side stage.

    Anyway this is long and I am off my soap box. Hope this helps educate a few of you. Feel free to add to any costs that I have overlooked.
    Happy Dancing!

  • OFA Friendship Feis 7/29 in St. Louis Now Open on Quickfeis -- Jennifer Bartley, 07:18:38 04/22/18 Sun
    Hi, Everyone!

    Now that we St. Patrick’s Day and Worlds are behind us, I’m sure many of you are well into your summer feis planning! As you are setting up your feis schedule, I’d like to warmly invite you to the fourth annual O’Faolain Academy Friendship Feis in St. Louis, MO, on Sunday, July 29th! Here are just a few reasons you might want to consider it…

    1) It’s a double-dip! We will once again be partnering with our good friends at the Clarkson School, who will be hosting the St. Louis An Samhra Feis on Saturday, July 28th! Both feiseanna will be held in the same venue as in the past, the beautiful Hilton St. Louis-Frontenac! The hotel has a gorgeous outdoor pool, and is near malls and restaurants galore! Whether you fancy family-friendly or ritzy elegance, you’re within walking distance! They also offer free parking and a free airport shuttle! There is a special room rate of $123 through July 8th if you mention you’re there for the Irish dance event! Online booking code is IRISH. You can also book through this link:

    http://www.hilton.com/en/hi/groups/personalized/S/STLFHHF-IRSH-20180727/index.jhtml?WT.mc_id=POG

    2) The Friendship Feis is a black & white, no-wig feis! You can sleep in a few extra minutes after all the fun you’ll have had the day before at The An Samhra Feis!

    3) Rock ‘n’ Reel at the conclusion of the An Samhra Feis. See syllabus for details. Its epic. Themed costumes are encouraged, and you can dance alone or in a group of up to four dancers! The trophies are good, too!

    4) We are offering single-age groups for OC! If competitions end up being combined, we will combine into odd-age groups whenever possible, so that dancers will have a different experience on day 2!

    5) We will be hosting a dance-off for the Ron DiLorenzo Perpetual Trophy! 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place winners from all PC/OC competitions are eligible!

    6) We will also be holding a Parade of Champions for the 1st Place winners of all PC/OC competitions!

    7) The friendship bracelets!

  • CUT -- KILOGEAR, 13:20:58 04/17/18 Tue


    Hello All!

    I’d like to introduce CUT, a line of revolutionary, high performance gear that incorporates KILOGEAR’S weighted technology specifically for Irish dancers. The weights are suspended in internal pockets throughout the clothing and our high intensity compression fabrics ensure that movement is kept to a minimum. The addition of only a few pounds has a dramatic effect when distributed throughout the body and is proven to help dancers improve their strength and overall performance.

    Dancers require a massive amount of speed and power to properly execute movements and Irish dancing is probably the only sport that has a culture of not training in the exact conditions as they will experience on a competition day. Dancers are required to literally weigh themselves down with a costume that can sometimes weigh up to five pounds for some of the girls, yet no one ever practices under those conditions because the costumes are too expensive and fragile to constantly wear. KILOGEAR CUT is the solution to this very real problem that effects the performance of nearly every dancer worldwide.

    Dancers typically have extreme muscle imbalance due to the very nature of Irish dancing, which results in a weak core and lack of upper body strength. KILOGEAR CUT is designed to help address these issues and build the foundations of a more well-rounded athlete. As dancing has evolved to be so dynamic it’s massively important to maintain steady posture and a sense of ease in the upper body. Our weighted tops help restrict arm movement and require dancers to properly engage their back and core while dancing. The weighted leggings force dancers to move quicker and be sharper throughout the dance. 

    In addition to our gear we are designing an entire exercise and fitness programme that will teach dancers how to properly use the gear and function as a form of cross training in a way that best compliments their already extremely rigorous dancing schedule.
     
    Please check out our website at: https://kilogearcut.com

    And follow us on Instagram @KILOGEARCUT for updates!

    If you should have any questions email us at: Cut@KiloGear.com

  • Off topic - looking for some help on a college trip (more inside) -- Out of region parent, 03:43:38 04/10/18 Tue
    We are heading to DC to see 4 DC area schools (Catholic, American, George Washington, and U Maryland). We have hotel reservations in both Tysons Corners and Arlington. We plan to drive to all schools based on how spread out they are and the fact that we are visiting 2 a day. Based on your experience with DC traffic, is one location (Tysons Corners or Arlington) better in respect to driving in?

  • This may be a silly question, but is there a list of "casual" (for lack of a better term) feises somewhere? -- Thank you!, 19:06:54 04/09/18 Mon
    My daughter loved how easy the Rose & Shamrock Feis in Lancaster was (no wigs, no solo dresses), and frankly I enjoyed the change too! Are there other feises that do this?

    I've heard someone mention a t-shirt feis before? Any recommendations or upcoming feises to look out for?

  • LAST week to register for CAROLINA TWIN CITY FEIS -- QuickFeis, 09:28:07 04/07/18 Sat
    This is the LAST week for you to register online for the CAROLINA TWIN CITY FEIS (Sat Apr 21) at www.quickfeis.com

    Online registration will close at the end of the day on Friday April 13!

    Remember that your registration is not complete until FULL payment is received.

    All unpaid registrations will be dropped after the April 13 deadline.

    The Carolina Twin City Feis does have a cap of 350 and once the cap is met, no new registrations online nor at the feis will be accepted.

    The feis will be at The Village Inn in Clemmons, North Carolina. A spacious hotel right outside of Winston-Salem. Click the link to see their special offers and golf package!

    The Carolina Twin City Feis offers a fun Treble Reel, Celtic Art competition, and 2, 3, 4, and 8 Hand competitions! To keep it quaint, the organizers have limited registration to only the first 350 paid competitors.

    Again, online registration will close at the end of the day on Friday April 13. Afterwards, if the feis has not capped, you may still register at the feis, but there will be a $50 late fee you will need to pay (please see the feis syllabus for additional details).

    So save money and complete your registration before the deadline!

    We look forward to seeing you at the feis!

  • Feisworx question regarding levels offered by system -- Tatiana, 06:38:39 04/07/18 Sat
    Using Feisworx to register for a feis and it is only offering a level above what my child needs in her pw treble jig. She is a u9 dancer and it only offers me a u10 treble jig. The other dances are all offered at the correct level. Is this an error in Feisworx or the feis combined levels?

  • College/Oireachtas question: DD is applying for 2019 admission into Universities in Nashville and Houston. She wants to continue dancing through college. -- Midamerica Mom, 20:50:41 04/01/18 Sun
    Her teacher doesn't give lessons via skype and does not permit his dancers to be coached by an outside TCRG. This means she would have to transfer to a local school once she is accepted. Since she would be attending a Southern school, I don't think she would be able to compete in the Midamerica Oireachtas. Would she be able to compete in the Southern Oireachtas instead? I am really confused about how this works, so any helpful information would be appreciated as we plan ahead. Thank you !

We have booked the Courtyard DC/US Capital at 2nd St. NE because it was right near the metro and figured it would be the easiest to get us to all of the 3 schools she's looking at. A friend mentioned last night that we may not want to stay in DC, but rather outside as not all areas are great for walking around. For those in the metro DC area, should we think of staying outside, or is the area we booked okay?

  • I'm disappointed by the low registration #s for the Carolina Twin City Feis. -- Not from the host school/organization, 10:21:14 03/05/18 Mon
    This is a fledgling feis and they probably don't have the cash reserves that a typical renewing feis would have. That means they probably need the revenue from the early registrations to meet expenses for awards and such, which have to be paid for in ADVANCE of the feis. As a feis committee member for several other feiseanna, one of them fairly new, I know first hand how important this early revenue is. If you are planning to do this feis, please register now and help these guys out! Hey, it's another feis opportunity in the Southern Region. This is fantastic!

    We were so happy to have you all in Brooklyn yesterday. It was a great day. We were humbled by everyone’s response to our small tribute to Irish Dancer, Cara Loughran. It was beautiful to see all of the dancers wear her name on their cards as they all danced. It was also beautiful to see how everyone embraced it and took it one step further. I’ve never seen so many people wear purple at once! Thank you! Thank you to Jeanne and Michael Farrel (Head for the World) for making hundreds of ribbons for our competitors and their families. We appreciate your good hearts! Today we are busy wrapping things up. All Grade Level Marks (Beginner, Advanced Beginner, Novice, Prizewinner) Will be emailed to the competitors. They will be sent to the email you used to register for Efeis. Please check your spam/junk mail and if should have questions regarding grades marks, they can be sent to goldenfeisresults at gmail dot com. As this process is manually entered, please allow time. Our connectivity at the venue was slim to none and we apologize that this was a task we could not begin at the feis. Preliminary and Open championship marks distributed as the respective competitions were resulted yesterday. Results for those competitions can be viewed at http://feisnanollag dot blogspot dot com. Champ award pics will also be posted today.

  • Looking at Krewe results, and seeing that they combined a lot of age groups to get to 5 competitors. For example, on the syllabus there are u5, u7, and u9 AdvBeg listed, but they combined into u9, thus making the comp count. Are all feises allowed to do this? I have a u7 AdvBeg who is still there because none of the u6AdvBeg comps that we entered had 5 dancers. U7 was usually merged into u8, and we were just left competing against a couple people. Are all feises allowed to do this? I’ve emailed some and they said that they can only combine 2 age groups. -- Thank you!, 11:18:22 01/14/18 Sun

  • North Coast Feis MidAMerica Costume Rules -- Irishmama, 12:22:00 01/09/18 Tue
    The North Coast Feis looks forward to visitors from out of region. If your child is competing in the U8 or U9 age groups PLEASE be aware of our regional costuming rules. The rules are not new to us but they may be to you. Every year we as a committee are put in the difficult position of disallowing a dancer to compete because the parents or teachers were not aware of or did not understand the rules.
    The rules cover all U8 (and below) or U9 competitions (boys and girls). If the competition is classed as U10 or above the rules do not apply to any dancer in the comp even if they individually are under age. If in doubt of compliance please bring an all black replacement as a back up.

    Here are the solo costume guidelines for all U8 and U9 dancers in the Mid America region as of January 2012:

    UNDER 8 and Under 9 COSTUME RULE

    The dress may be one piece or two pieces

    No animal prints

    No low cut necklines

    No decorations including rhinestones or sequins of any kind.

    No reflective fabric / (this does not include satin)

    No embellishments.

    Base material and appliqué materials must be solid colors

    (No plaids, stripes, patterns, flowers or reflective materials).

    Any embroidery and appliqué used on the dress must be of a traditional nature.

    Length must comply with An Coimisiun

    No Jewelry

    Plain Satin Bows in the hair are allowed but bows may not be attached to the dress or used for a cape.

    Plain colored satins that do not include sequins, glitter, or crystals are permissable.

    Buckles without rhinestones are permitted on shoes.

    All current school costumes are grandfathered into the rule regardless of threads or materials. All rhinestones would need to be removed.

    All of the above applies to headpieces, socks and shoes.

    This is for all U8 and U9 Boy and Girl Solo Championships and Traditional Set Competitions at the Oireachtas and all levels U9 and younger at Mid-American feiseanna. Mid-American costume rule apply to all dancers entered in a Mid-American feis.

    Please pass the word to your out of region friends. We want everyone to have the best day possible

  • How long not dancing until it’s not a transfer? -- SR, 11:58:04 01/08/18 Mon
    My DD finished last spring in formal classes, did no summer class, and went off to college having “retired” in prelims. Well guess who now wants to dance again? Her closest friends have all retired or transferred from her original school though. When she comes back this summer can she take classes at a different school without paperwork? It will have been a year from her last paid class in the old school. She is in college out of the SR so competing is a long shot since no school is likely to take on someone who won’t be here 9 mos. of the year. She just wants to do it again for a bit and see if she was right to retire.

  • Dancers and self promotion on social media -- Do you think it impacts judging?, 17:37:59 12/05/17 Tue
    I see a lot of self promotion on social media - certain dancers and their "stage moms" seem to be continually sending in their pics to be posted on blogs and the like. The question is do you think it affects judging? I would think probably not because a lot of the ones that seem to do it most aren't overly successful, but I still wonder. Is it just a necessary part of the sport nowadays?

    One of the vendors expressed it well - she said she loves coming to the SRO because everyone overall (yes, I said OVERALL - not necessarily EVERYONE LOL) is so much friendlier, nice, and a pleasure to interact with. I have to say I'm thankful for the "I have no idea who you are but you're a feis mom/dad so you get it" parents who I spent time with. We commiserated, joked, encouraged, lamented, advised, laughed and cried together the entire weekend. There's lots to be negative about, but I wanted to share that we are, for the most part, thankful for all of the polite, helpful, genuine dancers and family members we met and spent time with this year.

  • Sportsmanship for some dancers out the window. Yes it's an emotional weekend. But tears & pouting when you didn't get a 1st, in public, as a teen...take it out to the hall or bathroom. And parents, teach your kids to have some humility. Especially your old ones. Sad to see and irritating. -- Teach!, 03:15:17 12/05/17 Tue
    You're free to cry & pout but dang. Take it elsewhere. Parents stop milking it it too in awards room... Especially your older teens. Little ones look up to them. And parents -- teach !!!!!!

    If we believe ID to be a true sport, then teach your kids the value of sportsmanship. A sash color is a good color. If you didn't get the color you wanted, then yes , get upset, but take it outside.
    Ugh.

    I always notice some differences in teacher podium etiquette. There are a majority of them that come up every year for the pictures and quickly move to the side and a handful that stand there the entire time blocking all the other dancers on the podium (looking at you Drake and Teelin). It should be an opportunity for all the dancers to be photographed and enjoy their moment. I'm sure I missed some other usual offenders...

  • Looking for a new school that is driveable in NOVA area - disappointing SRO results (more inside) -- nt, 06:32:45 12/04/17 Mon
    The results at SRO were very disappointing for my child despite attending several classes a week, practicing at home everyday, and even taking private lessons (but some were with teaching assistants vs. TCs).

    I really think my child just isn't getting enough feedback on technique or how to improve. Her TC provides some but it's fairly generic and she doesn't focus much on how to improve the technique. I heard other TCs give much more instruction on how to change.

    Before I wasn't willing to drive more than 30 mins but now I would be willing to at least drive an hour. So any suggestions for schools?

  • Missing shoes from SRO -- Sad dancer, 04:44:11 12/04/17 Mon
    My shoes have been taken from under the chairs in ballroom 3 Sunday, along with a bag of rolls of tape. They are all white nike sneakers, women’s size 8. They were not at the lost and found table. Please help me find them as they were bought to me as a gift by my grandma that passed away. Contact 3367404653

    We've done the double bun many many times, but have never 100% been happy with the results. We realize MANY dancers do the whole Marge Simpson look, and yes, that's what our dancer kind of wants. I wanted to do a curly pouf but not sure how to do it without smooshing it with the giant tiara.

    How many donuts, and where? ANY tips from you pros who have OC dancers is appreciated!

  • Observation: reading the UK voy board periodically I am thankful that our board ajd the rest of the American voy boards aren't full of the hatred and nastiness I see on the uk boards. Granted we do have our complainers and periodic nastiness but it seems like its all they talk about over there. The corruption, the hatred for certain TCs, the nastiness about dancers. -- inside...IMO, 05:54:26 11/26/17 Sun
    ..... For the most part. UK folks seem super angry and a little too wrapped up. Maybe they need to find another sport for their kids. Gets old.
    Anyway thankful that we are, for the most part, a civilized lot. Yes it can be tough to watch what the bad apples do to our sport but I appreciate that for the majority of us, we love watching our kiddos excel, learn, and make friendships.

    Food for thought. Now off to eat some turkey leftovers.

  • First time at SRO - question about arrival time -- Newbie, 20:51:08 11/24/17 Fri
    We are not staying on site but about 15 minutes away. Dancer's 1st round starts at 8am but I see check in is 30 minutes prior. So if I'm understanding this - she should be at venue in dress, warmed up and checking in at 7:30? I'm a nervous nellie about timing so I'm thinking we probably have to leave our other hotel at 6am or earlier?? to allow for car retrieval, drive, parking at Hilton, walking to stage area, warm-up, and throw in an allowance for last minute disaster (shoe, wig, whatever). Which means we will be getting up quite early - yikes! Does that sound about right? And if so, can I carry my Big Gulp of coffee everywhere?

  • iFeis would like to welcome the Raleigh Feis and introduce the system to those who have not used it yet. -- Win@iFeis.net, 05:46:18 11/14/17 Tue
    After years of participating in all of the feis volunteer roles, we decided to take feis registration and tabulations solutions to the next level by leveraging hand held devices to create the first integrated, mobile optimized feis management system. The end goal is to eliminate most of the paper used at a feis and have all your feis information accessible through your mobile device.

    Features include a live stage schedule to see the status of competitions in real time, as well as an online search engine for competitors and competitions to replace a hard copy program book, both from your smart phone. More features are in progress as we take full advantage of the integration of the iFeis management system.

    For the user, iFeis is very different from other solutions as we designed it using contemporary web design principles and concepts employing a best practices approach, which includes a constant quality assurance. For some, change can be hard, especially when you have used other solutions for many years.

    We have a very responsive support system which can be accessed through the “Contact iFeis” button found anywhere on the iFeis website.

    Please read over the iFeis Account Setup and User Instructions on the iFeis Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ifeis) and we look forward to hearing from you and meeting you at the Raleigh Feis! Registration opening soon!

    I have been to a number of work conventions in the ORL area, and many times am offered "twilight tickets" at a discounted rate for admission to the parks after 4 pm. NANS in 2013 offered this to dancers, but it was in Anaheim. Anyone know if a similar deal will be available to OIR dancers? We wouldn't have time to spend a full day at the parks, but it would be a very nice consolation prize if a recall doesn't happen.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be seen before judges before Oireachtas! -- Ohio Mom, 09:08:46 10/16/17 Mon

  • Scoring question -- Southernmomma, 09:58:22 10/02/17 Mon
    I thought I had a handle on the complexities of how preliminary championship comps are scored, but this weekend I realized I need to do some research - and I haven't been able to find an article that addresses my exact question, despite reading up on the Irish point system again.

    From this weekend's competition, judge A ranked the two rounds 9 and 9 (out of 14), judge B 8 and 10, and judge C 11 and 9. Somehow, though, the overall ranking at the end of irish point tabulation was 14 out of 14.

    Can someone kindly explain why the overall ranking wouldn't be somewhere in the 9-10 range? I can't figure out why she would be dead last when none of the judges rankings were dead last for either round.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Rules questions - disqualification and stage size -- Clarity, 05:49:04 10/01/17 Sun
    Question #1- if the musician plays the wrong music and the dancers start dancing to it, are they disqualified? Shouldn't they know by Open ia slip jig from a reel?

    Question #2 - what are the rules about a champion stage size? Who decides if dancers dance 2 or 3 for hard shoe?

    I drove 6+ hours so my dancer could see a different group in her line. I was surprised to see the following: a stage that was built right up to the wall, dancers from u9 thru Seniors in prelim and open dancing HS three at a time. The feis had a 500 competition cap including 250 champions with only 2 stages. Although, this is a small feis compared to the ones closer to us, I was surprised to see so few judges and stages.

    The feis organizers probably made a nice sum off of the feis at the expense of the dancers who danced in less than desirable conditions, the musicians who had to play all day and into the night and the judges who worked close to 11 hours with so few breaks. I made the decision to leave early but the musicians and judges have to do it all over today.

  • Found soft shoes at Greensboro Feis -- Dancer, 19:02:54 09/30/17 Sat
    Found a pair of soft shoes in back right corner in the ballroom where stage three was located. Soft shoes are 5.5, with white laces and blue inner soles, look like hullicans. I promptly turned the shoes in to the awards desk for they were the only committee memebers left at the end of the day. Hope they find their owner!
