We are planing to do the Maine Feis as a destination feis. We will have one full day to explore. From the google search I found lots of nice restaurants and Ertha.
Is there more to see? Kids are teenagers.

The NANs host committee has authorized a charitable event organized by one of the #NAIDC2016 dancers. Please join the Irish Dance community in showing support for the victims, their families and first responders of the Pulse Nightclub shooting by wearing a silver awareness ribbon while at NANs.

Awareness ribbons will be available for a $3 donation (or $20 team donation) in the convention center lobby starting Thursday evening. Net proceeds will be donated to the official Equity Florida GoFundMe account for Orlando victims. Our hope is to see everyone - dancers, teachers, parents and judges - proudly wearing a silver ribbon in a show of support for the people of Orlando!

Hello Friends,

On behalf of Cara Rince, the parent group of Murray Academy, we would like to thank you for joining us at our feis this coming weekend! We have worked diligently to ensure a fun, well-organized event for all competitors. We have tried to plan for every contingency, yet are wise enough to know that some things are beyond our control. We will do our best to keep things running smoothly throughout the day. Most information can be found on our website, www.murrayacademyfeis.com, but there are a few
few additional ‘housekeeping items’ we would like to highlight:

The New Hampshire seacoast is a popular tourist destination in summer. The weekend forecast is predicting a warm, sunny weekend, which could mean heavier than normal traffic on the major highways heading north due to the tolls. Please consider this as you plan to drive up on Sunday.

Sanborn High School is a new venue for us. It is a newer school, and parking will be plentiful. The auditorium, cafeteria, and Large gym are air-conditioned; the small gymnasiums is not, so we have secured a number of large fans to keep the dancers as cool as possible.

If it is a nice day, champ awards will take place in the courtyard behind the cafeteria. If it rains, they will be inside the cafeteria. Approximate times will be posted for your convenience. Grade awards will be a the far end of the main hall, to the right of the front entrance. Postings will be in the main hall and toward the right. Results will also be posted on Twitter and our Facebook page.

If you would like photos to commemorate your dancer’s day, Murray the Moose will be with us, and your dancer can take a picture with him! Pictures will cost $10.

Please try to join us for lunch in the cafeteria. We have worked very hard to provide delicious and nutritious offerings for our guests. Additionally, we are running a bake sale to support our dancers heading to Nationals in July. We also have several wonderful vendors joining us, so please take some time to visit them if you can.

Of special note is our amazing raffle basket, worth over $500! For a photo and description of the basket, visit the Murray Academy Feis Facebook page.

If you have any questions or need help just look for our CREW wearing the bright yellow shirts.

Again, we look forward to seeing you all. We wish you safe travels.

The Murray Feis Committee

A few weeks ago I ordered 3 pairs of socks from Katie Luck, the only socks my dancers will wear. Much to my sadness my package was stolen from my mailbox - the USPO recorded the package as delivered but I never received it. I reached out to Katie for her mailing address so I could file a claim with the USPO (which was rejected) and to my surprise I found a package in my mailbox today sent to me by Katie...3 pairs of socks to replace the ones stolen, complete with a handwritten note. Such kindness and so thoughtful, and totally unsolicited! Not only are her socks the BEST on the market, but her customer service and care are beyond words. A small gesture, but an appreciated one. Thank you!

Exciting news! The deadline to enter the Irish Cultural Centre Championships on Saturday, June 11 has now been extended. Dancers may enter - without a late fee - until Sunday, June 5. We hope you can join us at the beautiful Irish Cultural Centre in Canton for both the dancing and music competitions.

2 notes: Tents and chairs are allowed for “camping” - no coolers please! We are trying to work out the schedule to put U16 and U17 championship competitions the end of the day, due to ACT testing in the morning.

My daughter has danced since she was 3 years old. She is 14 now. She has not been to dance for almost 4 weeks due to other obligations and doesn't appear to have the desire to return. No one from her school has missed her or reached out to see why she is not attending classes. She did attend the Cape Feis and metaled for the first time and received no acknowledgement or encouragement from her school. They post a lot on social media but did not include her. I am not sure if she just feel's as if her school no longer cares about her or if she is really just done. I know it happens. I really do not want her to quit but dance is expensive and I also do not want force to her go if this is just a natural transition. When do kids usually stop?

Date Posted: 20:28:36 05/25/16 Wed

We're getting moved to Boston from Ohio due to my work (effective in August). Short version - I'm looking for a dance school that is good at developing kids (DD is U9 PW) and will also be supportive of adults who dance (I don't want to quit!).

Would love recos of any schools that might fit the bill; I've asked our TCRG but also want to hear other opinions.


TL;DR version follows:

DD's situation: she danced at Mid-America O last year and had had her eye on improved results this fall (was 49/82 as U8, definitely wants to recall and stretch goal is to qualify for nationals). She's in PW, working on PC (has won SJ a couple of times, consistently placing in all others). I'd love for her to get to compete at O; it would stink to have her miss it after the work she's put in since last fall.

My situation: I started dancing after college and have been at it for 15yrs straight. 14 of those were spent with a performance-only troupe; that group merged with my daughter's school last year so I just started competing and have enjoyed that quite a bit. I'd love to do trad set at O but we don't have it for adults in Mid-America.

I am looking for some advice about going to Walt Disney World after the Nationals for one day. I am not a "Disney" person and I have no idea if I should buy tickets ahead of time. Also, I heard that you can go online and register to skip lines for certain rides?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

My DD and I have never been to FL. Should I rent a car to use during Nationals, or would that be unnecessary?

Hi! First time doing an outside feis. Any suggestions for staying cool/dry or otherwise shielding my dancer from the elements?

I saw a post suggesting a "pop-up" tent but I'm kind of a city girl so I have no idea what that means. Any help or tips from someone who's attended in the past would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
