I've heard of parents traveling up to 3 hours each way, and would like some input.

I know NANs is July 2 to 6 next summer; it would be helpful to find out which day the different age groups dance... planning a road trip with NANs and there are some good black friday sales coming up...
Any info would be great or is there a NANs website set up already? Thanks

Girls u16 does not list Kate Babcock as medal holder (she is) - does that mean there should have been one more WQ spot?

Just completed our weekend at the NEO. I know, my daughter loves to dance but we are so tired of the associated nonsense of the whole weekend and blatant favoritism by our teachers. The creations of their 'A' teams and haphazard creation of the remaining 'scrub' teams. Recognizing those that win/place is awesome and we are happy for the winners but don't ignore those that didn't place. They worked just as hard. And the 'winners clique'? The dancers and their parents should be ashamed of themselves. So tell me again, why do we do this?

I watched a 4-hand team in this age group yesterday with blue dresses with orange accents ( I believe it was a Haley team) and was amazed! It was so good and clean and I couldn't find any flaws. I was very surprised when that team didn't place. But to those girls in that team who I'm sure are discouraged, you four looked absolutely stunning. Good work girls!

Seeking an apology from the teacher and parent who forcefully told my husband looking around the audience for our prelim champ daughter during awards that he "had to leave right now because this is a private event", and then they again asked him to leave; then the parent said she didn't believe him when he politely said he had a daughter dancing. He had to bring our daughter over to prove that he was there legitimately (nice lesson for her). We are honestly a bit rattled by the nasty and possibly racist approach that was just completely unnecessary. He has brown skin and a beard. Just wow. Can you believe that? Think before you jump to judge… you just insulted a Harvard PhD who has supported Irish dancing for many years….
