Just a few notes and reminders ahead of the weekend- Please bring your Feis Web confirmation or pull it up on your phone so that you do not have to pay for parking or to get into the festival. The schedule will be out on Wednesday. Head for the World will be a vendor and they will be bringing some Fay's shoes products with them as well. Please remember that this is an outdoor feis in a field. Prepare for all kinds of weather (although our fingers are crossed for only good weather)! Bring plastic bags to cover your dancer's shoes when walking to/from the stages, bring an umbrella in case of rain. You may also want to bring a leotard and skirt in case of rain or very hot weather. There will be one championship stage inside one of the buildings, all other stages are outside under tents.

Thank you and looking forward to a great day on Sunday!

Just ordered my daughter a mock-neck leotard on Amazon. It arrived, and is way too big (it may actually fit me). Is there somewhere in the local Boston area that sells these? We clearly need a try-on. Or, a recommended online source with fits as-expected youth sizes? Thanks so much in advance!

Date Posted: 10:26:37 06/15/18 Fri

My latest release for Irish dancers - "The Vanishing Lakes Collection" - is available NOW for pre-sale on iTunes and will officially released on June 25th.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-vanishing-lake-collection-bonus-tracks/1396893172

*Reserve your download on iTunes NOW and instantly receive a download of a Presentation Reel track, perfect for class or dance outs!*

As a TCRG myself, I've designed this album to make class more efficient, allowing dancers to focus on endurance and rhythm work.

Tracks are laid out 4 different ways:
----**Entire Set TWICE in a row** (eliminates wasted time in class for those waiting in line to dance)

----**Full Step Part TWICE followed by Set TWICE** (for endurance runs)

----**Basic Set WITHOUT percussion** (encourages dancers to listen to the MUSIC itself, not the heavy beat that is embedded into most Irish dance tracks)

----**Basic Set** (for good, oldfashioned practice =))

Thanks and hope you enjoy!

Subject: A few thoughts about Irish dance. It's long, feel free to scroll past


Author:

There always seems to be so much attention paid to the negatives associated with Irish dance, the cost of the costumes, favoritism, politics, keeping up with the latest trends in dresses and wigs, who has the better steps, who is associated with whom, and the list goes on and on. What is rarely highlighted are the positives that Irish dance brings to our lives. Ten years ago today, my then six year old daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia. It was, and remains, the worst day of my life. What followed was two years of chemotherapy, hospital visits, worry, spinal taps (17), bone marrow pulls (4), and a constant out pouring of support from people both close to us and those we’d barely meet.
My daughter’s dance teacher visited her in the hospital and gave scholarships to my other two daughters. She allowed my daughter to come to dance class when she felt like it and still let her be in the recital even though she had almost no idea what she was doing. Some of the older girls in the school organized a fund raiser for us, several of the parents made meals, donated snacks to the clinic where she got treatment, and drove my daughters to and from class when I couldn’t. All the teachers in the school sent messages of support and helped my family in whatever ways they could. One year when I posted on the message boards about my daughter dancing at the Quassy feis on her 5 year remission date, people I’d never met before came up to me at the feis to congratulate me on her recovery.
That is what Irish dance is all about. People came together to help a family in need, and they’ve done it again and again when misfortune has befallen someone in our school. It is so easy to fall into the negative spiral that comes with competition. I find myself doing it to, believe me. I think it’s important to remember, though, that there is more to life than how well one places in a competition. The first Irish dances were figure dances and were done at family gatherings. Let’s not forget that dance should be joyous and a celebration.
I’m happy to say that my daughter is now 16, has been cancer free for 8 years and is competing in her first NANs this summer. This Father’s Day, instead of being in the hospital, we will be in MA at a feis. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate her recovery.
Thank you, Griffith Academy for being there for my family.

If you’re going to sit all day judging open and prelim dancers - so least give them some feedback. Heard of many comps from the start of the day to the end complain of the same thing. Again not the fault of OSC - otherwise an amazing feis!!

I'm wondering if anyone here has been to the Maine State Feis and could let us know what you thought of it. From past posts, it looks like they only place top 3 in the grades level. Is there typically a large turnout for this feis or are the numbers small. Are a lot of comps combined to get the 5 dancers in a comp? Is it well run and generally are the stages on time? We'd be travelling a distance and having to stay over night so I'm trying to figure out if it would be worth the trip. Thanks for your feedback.

There is an upcoming feis with very few beginners either in my kid's age group or the one right above or below. Most of the feiseanna we've been to had at least 10 kids in her group (it's one of the more popular ages for beginners). What happens when there aren't very many, and not many in the nearby age groups either? I wasn't sure since moving up from beginner is based on time and not placement from a competition with a minimum number of competitors.

We would like to cordially invite you once again to the Mullane Godley Feis and the new Father's Day Feis on June 16 and June 17 at the MAX-McCook Athletic Center.

Hello,
We think my daughter left her makeup bag at the Hansen Keohane Feis. It is a green terry cloth bag with “Caroline “ on the front. We were back and forth a few times between the buildings and didn’t realize we didn’t have it. I’ve talked to HK and it wasn’t turned in to them. We’re hoping it may have ended up in someone else’s bags. Wondering if anyone may have found it?
Thank you!

Is it common for schools to have higher requirements for moving from one level to another, than the requirements listed in the feis syllabi?

For example, keeping kids at pre-beginner for a second feis, keeping them in beginner even though they have been dancing longer than a year, requiring all firsts, rather than first/second/third, to move up from advanced beginner to novice?

I appreciate the effort and loved the double feis weekend opportunity, but honestly what is up with the stages? There were WAY too many wipe outs, much more than normal. All dancers and families make efforts and sacrifices to attend feisanna, no matter what the overall results end up being, and I don’t think it’s too much to expect that we are given a space in which we can dance our best and do so safely. Unfortunately this was not the case this weekend.

Finally got around to looking at the schedule, why wouldn't they put the little open 9/10 year olds who will take all of 20 minutes to dance at the beginning of the day? Get them done and out of there instead of hanging around until 5. Poor things! That is a serious schedule flaw.

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

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.

The Lenihan teachers would like to thank everyone who attended our feis yesterday. Thank you especially to all of you who took the time to thank a parent volunteer for their hard work or say a quick thank you to one of us. Those comments are so appreciated after all of the effort it takes to put on a feis.
Huge thank you also to all of our parent and dancer volunteers. We couldn't do this without all of you!
See you all for our fall feis on November 4!

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?!?
