  • 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?

Awards postings were quick and efficient - all competitions well run. Simply a delightful weekend - so glad that you expanded to a two-day Feis! Knowing all of the work that goes into it, I'd like to express my heartfelt "thanks" and appreciation to all of the magnificent volunteers. Such a lovely lovely weekend!

  • 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!

    I'm considering this feis for my young (7 year old) beginner. I'm new to this and it would be her first competition. Thoughts as to how this one runs? 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.

  • Anyone ever been to Mexico City feis? -- New Yorker, 09:30:13 02/08/17 Wed
    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 :)

    SJ
