Subject: Personal Training Available for Dancers in Boston Area


Author:
Certified PT
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 13:19:46 04/18/18 Wed

Hello! I am an NSCA-Certified Personal Trainer and Open Champ level dancer moving to the Boston Area for grad school. I have a degree in Nutritional Sciences and Nutrition for Exercise and Sport. I work with dancers to prevent injury, improve movement mechanics, and build power and speed in ways that translate to better performance in class and onstage.

Beginning in May, I am offering one-on-one sessions and small-group training to dancers who are looking to prevent injury and reach their goals.

Cross training is hugely important for success in Irish dance, but it is vital that your workouts are effective, safe, and specific to your needs as a dancer. Meeting in person with a trainer is a great way to ensure that your program is tailored to your specific strengths and weaknesses, your questions are answered, and every move is executed with good form.

A couple quick notes -
I like to see a video from class or have my clients do a full so that I can see what their strengths and weaknesses are, but I do not ever address or practice choreography with dancers, so there are no association issues.
No gym membership is necessary - I will work with whatever tools you have available to meet your/your dancer's needs. There are some tools that I encourage dancers to purchase. They are relatively inexpensive, and I can give you a list with exactly where to buy them.
I'm willing to travel outside of Boston, as long as the time and distance are reasonable. If you're in MA but a little further out, let me know and we can decide together whether or not the logistics are feasible.

Working with athletes is my favorite part of training and I feel so strongly about helping other dancers reach their full potential. Please shoot me an email if you'd like any more info or would like to chat about options for you or your dancer. Thanks!

Subject: CUT


Author:
KILOGEAR
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 14:32:48 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

Hoping for your 2nd first to get you to Open before the May 1st deadline and your last chance to qualify for Nationals before the cutoff? Join us the last weekend of April for not just 1 but two chances.

We are offering 2 separate feis' on the same weekend. One being our 1st ever Blackout Feis Saturday April 28 (no dresses, no wigs, no bling & no stress!)

And our 3rd annual Bracken School Feis, Sunday April 29th.

You can register for both on Feisweb.com and you can find the syllabus for both days and FAQ's for our blackout feis on brackenirishdanceboston.com

There does not seem to be any clearly written rule about whether you follow your region’s rules wherever you dance or do you follow the rules of the region where you’re dancing? My child’s TC said you follow the rules of the region where you are dancing, but other TCs in the same region say otherwise. To me, it makes sense to follow the rules and the syllabus of the region where you are dancing, not your own region’s rules. But how does the question get officially answered?!?

As we refine the iFeis user experience, we continue to set the bar and develop new functionality. We are excited to announce development of an iFeis iPad Adjudicator App. Leveraging an iPad with the Apple pencil and an app developed exclusively by iFeis, the new app seamlessly merges the iPad Pro and scoring using handwriting recognition. Working with ADCRG’s during its development, we expect to begin “Reel” world testing soon, with plans to offer the option to adjudicators in 2018.

Fesiweb results & postings at feis don't match (Frustrated and unimpressed DM)
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 12:50:57 03/05/18 Mon

NOT a good experience yesterday at the Saugus feis. Maybe had we danced early in the day things would have been better? Out of the 5 dances that my daughter competed in, the judges changed 4 times, one judge being relieved of her duties seconds before the dancing was to begin (judge was pregnant). Another was complaining that he had a 5 1/2 journey ride home after the competition to the score of parents that had been waiting there since 3:15 for their children to dance.(it was after 5:00 pm) But...the kicker is that the posted feisweb results did not match the results posted on the walls at the competition!! My husband always chided me for taking a photo of the results on the wall but yesterday we found total discrepancies in the postings. It was only after looking at the feisweb results this morning that we saw the mistakes. Dancers be aware - how very unfortunate for all the dancers that this may have happened to yesterday. They work very hard to improve and move up classes - I understand that it may have been a long day for all but the dancers at the end of the day deserve the same respect from the judges that judge in the morning & afternoon sets.

If you are looking for a room in the block, I'll be happy to transfer these to your name.

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.

There is a post on the U.K. board about the best dresses at All Irelands - all of which are worn by Irish and U.K. dancers. I have observed over the years that US/NA dancers, even the best (unless they dance for the designer), receive inferior dresses. NA contributes an inordinate % of the dress designer revenue, yet receive a lesser product. It just seems crazy to me that we butter their bread but get the scraps. I am not saying we deserve more/better, the same quality and WOW factor would be nice.

How is it that a strong NA based design talent has not emerged to deliver the same/better quality and design?

Please keep names out of discussion. Really just looking to see if my observation is felt by others as well.

As more and more dancers are staying in ID longer, doesn't it make sense to add additional older age groups in competitions. And don't give me the larger the numbers, the better. For instance in an upcoming feis there are 2 registered for U9, 6 registered for U10 and 10 for U11; shouldn't they be combined? Even doing so, there are still less than the 24 registered in the oldest comp which combines 5 age groups. Especially closer to majors, these dancers want to see how they compare to their own age, not the top 5 age groups. Have noticed many of the Mid-Atlantic feiseanna are offering U20 and 20+ groups. Maybe NE can follow suit as the oldest group historically is the largest group in most cases.

She really knew how they moved while dancing and was able to put together treatment plans that accommodated/dealt with the unique twists that ID has. Wondering if anyone can suggest a PT near BC who knows how Irish dancers move. She doesn't have a car, so access via the T or a not-too-expensive Uber is needed. Thanks from a Southern Region mom!

Subject: Are hard shoes supposed to hurt...?

Date Posted: 18:31:01 12/04/17 Mon

My daughter started hard shoes over the summer, and has never complained that they were uncomfortable until just recently. I guess now that she's gotten the steps, her teachers are now paying special attention to technique? In any case, they want her to work on keeping her heels much higher off the ground.

I can see why, because even to my inexperienced eyes it looks much fancier that way, but my daughter says it really hurts :( She doesn't usually complain about anything, and has never been bothered by the shoes until now, but she finds it more painful than she can take, to try to keep her heels up high off the floor.

Is this normal? She has asked some of the champion-level kids who help teach the class, and they say everyone feels like that, and that you get used to it. And they're so awesome in general, both as dancers and as teachers, that I'm 99% sure they're probably right... But I'm just worried that I'm letting her do herself some damage, if it hurts as much as she says it does.

I've emailed her teacher, too, but I'd really appreciate opinions from other moms, who surely must have asked themselves if it can really be ok for it to be so painful...?

Thanks for any advice!

Hi everyone! The Haley school will be collecting donations of new socks, hats, gloves, and scarves at the Realt na Nollag Feis on December 3rd! There will be a bucket to place your items in at the table where you collect your numbers at the front door. They will be donated to the Pine Street Inn and distributed to people and families in need this winter. The only special request is that only white socks are donated, as the shelter cannot distribute colored socks dues to the dyes used to color them. Any color and size hats, scarves, and gloves would be so appreciated! The Holy Ghost Parish in Whitman, MA is going to the Pine Street Inn to serve a meal on December 18th and all donations collected at the feis will be sent with the volunteers serving he meal that day. Thank you all for your donations! We appreciate everyone who helps give to those less fortunate than us by giving a small item such as a new pair of socks, gloves, a hat, or a scarf; these families that benefit from your donations appreciate it as well!

It's starting to feel like we are seeing more signs that we are pricing people out of dance and competitions. Entry numbers have been low on many competitions over the last several months, but now with Coogan not being held and no information on Gray occurring this fall, it looks as the days of abundant New England competitions may be starting to decline.

No recall and she is devastated a lot of her team mates who aren’t practicing recalled and she is just asking herself why should she get up and practice every day when they just do five minutes here or there and see better results. How do I️ show her that her hard work will pay off? This is her third O and she had a recall last year.

With the Oireachtas only a few days away, tensions are high, nerves are higher, and it is easy to forget to practice kindness. Our dancers have worked so hard for their few minutes on the stage and we, as parents, have spent a ton of money, time, mileage, and emotional energy preparing for this weekend. After all of that work and expense, it is easy to get frustrated when things don't go the way we think they should, when people do things that annoy us, or when the hotel/conference center inevitably messes something up.
I hope we can keep in mind that we are our children's role models and how we react to those frustrations will set the example for our children. I also hope we can keep this in perspective. It is Irish dance, not brain surgery. If things don't go as planned or hoped for, it is heartbreaking, but not life ending.
Let's try to be patient with one another, clean up after ourselves, (for the love of all that is holy, take care of your own messes) and be considerate of each other.
Now I need to go glue some stones on a dress, condition the wig, polish the shoes, clean the tiara, and...

Dancers have the right to remain in Prelim through 12/31 regardless of how many firsts they win in the current calendar year. Nobody is under any obligation to move up and out of your child's way, nor do they need to sit home when they enjoy feising. If you want your child to win, try having them practice more so they'll be the best dancer, not the best of what's left. Furthermore, the decision to remain in prelim for the rest of the year is usually made by the TC, and NOT by the child. Take a good look in the mirror, people. You're alleged adults attacking a child. You should be ashamed.

In an age where every one is so quick to complain, I feel we need to acknowledge the good to achieve change. It is a pleasant surprise to see the number of New England judges is minimal at your feis. What a breath of fresh air to have the majority of adjudicators from a different region. Again thanks for the effort given in selecting your adjudicating panel.

Looks like they do some Irish, but limited from what we can find. DD wants to continue dancing in college, but not competitively. Looking at PC, Stonehill, UNH. Have the list of colleges w Irish studies and clubs and dance, but looking for more firsthand info. Thank you.
