  • Thanks for your help -- MAR Mom, 12:49:39 03/31/15 Tue
    Hi Southern Region - my sister lives in Peachtree City and wants to start my niece dancing. I offered to help her find a school, but I'm in the Mid Atlantic so I don't know all the schools in the area. Is Kelly Porter good for beginners? Who else is in that area? I tried googling but figured it was better to come straight here instead! Thanks

    PS - I know how nasty these posts can get - purely looking for info only!

  • Little Rock Feis, observations from attending last year.... -- SRmom, 09:35:25 03/31/15 Tue
    DD competed last year at Little Rock. It was our first time. Great venue, lots of space, comps ran quickly, results posted quickly. DD was U9 PW. Only her reel had 5 or more, so U9 TJ, SJ, and HP were merged with U11 so any 1sts would count. Which was fine because my U9 DD won 1st in a comp with several U11s! The #s for the merged U9/U11 comps were about 17. Wish we could attend this year, but a local feis is the same weekend. We had flown in last year and stayed with family in LR. I highly recommend Little Rock Feis!

  • Dayton Area Feis -- Dayton Feis Committee, 08:23:35 03/31/15 Tue
    It's hard to believe, but the Dayton Area Feis is less than a month away! We have been busily finalizing the details for a fun-filled feis day and look forward to seeing everyone there!

    We still have 40 openings with approximately 100 unpaid registrations that will be dropped as soon as we cap or registration closes on April 12. If you have registered, but not yet paid, please do so as soon as possible!

    We will still be offering "Day-of" registrations on feis day. The fee for this convenience is $50.00 plus family fee and regular registration fees.

    (For Prelim dancers needing one more first to qualify for Open Championships in time for the 2015 North American Irish Dance Championships, this is your last chance before the deadline!)

    See everyone April 26th!

  • CCE registration - good thing I checked! -- SR, 04:30:07 03/26/15 Thu
    I registered my DDs and got a confirmation from Feisweb but when I just went back to add a dance, neither were on the list. Neither were two others on our teams though they both registered and paid. It looks like the fees were calculated wrong (I was registering for many dances so didn't notice the total wasn't correct) so we all still had a balance though we received confirmations and never received a balance due email. Might be worth checking if you registered.

    The show has already played to rave reviews in New York, Chicago & LA and I had the privilege of presenting it in Dublin in 2011. It offers a hilarious yet poignant insight into the world of Irish dance in a way no other Irish dance show has. Let's give a final push and send “The Bad Arm” to Edinburgh!

  • looking for advice on how to deal with a dancer/mom unit that does not know how to "play nice" with the other dancers on their team. In our school dancers are taught to compete against themselves in solos, not against others. We all support and applaud all of the dancers in each age group, no matter who comes out on top that day. A newer transfer is sweet to our faces, but makes nasty comments to others about how they deserves a higher placement than the winner, they have better ____, so-and-so blah... -- Is there any way to help this pair become a better "go team" happier pair?, 19:02:35 03/22/15 Sun
