Just a reminder that the Delaware Feis and Festival will be held August 6th, at St. Mark's High School in Wilmington, DE. We have a great panel of adjudicators and musicians for the feis. It is in a beautiful air-conditioned high school and we will be running 7 stages. It is hosted by the Irish Culture Club of Delaware and supported by all of the Delaware Irish Dance Schools. Some of our awards will be Waterford crystal and Belleek China. Upstairs in the cafe, we have a ceili band from 1 - 4 with a tea house, hot roast beef sandwiches etc, and a beverage garden. We also have a great array of vendors. You can register online at feisweb.com. Hope to see you there. Feel free to email with questions.

We're looking to come up for this feis from out of region but can't seem to find too many people who have done it before. My main question is admission to the park, I'm assuming that's not included in the registration since I would think that would make their fees higher.
Also is this feis a casual one or the whole 9 yards (dresses/wigs/etc)?
TIA

I know comments were made that we have "too many" schools down here but I for one am excited. I remember the days when there weren't many options at all down here. Even still, there are certain sections of this region that it's a hike to any studio so depending on where a school expands this could be great. One of the most Irish areas of the world, plenty of Irish dancers to go around. While some seem to focus on more schools as competition, I look forward to even more opportunities for families to find the school that best fits what they want out of Irish dance.

Date Posted: 05:09:53 07/06/17 Thu

Just bought our first dress from a BNDM. The process was easy until we got the dress. We measured multiple times with pictures. We got the dress. It won't zip. Arm holes are so small that her arms barely fit into the sleeves, bust is so tight it might rip and the back of the skirt is so short and tight that it sticks out in the back. BNDM told us to take it to a seamstress to have it altered. We've been to several seamstresses and tailors who specialize in Irish dance dresses who all say that it can't be let out enough to wear. The arm holes and skirt are a huge problem and there isn't enough fabric to let it out.

I've tried over the past month to reach the BNDM who during the process was responsive, but now won't return an email. They are posting on FB, so I know someone is there. The tailors/seamstresses insisted that I should get them to take the dress back and make a new one or refund my money, but they won't respond to me at all. I'm afraid I'm out thousands of dollars with no way to resolve it. If I send it back without them agreeing to anything, I might be out the money and without a dress that I could sell. What do I do?

Date Posted: 06:31:33 06/22/17 Thu

MADDEN Mary C. (Costello) 87, of South Boston, danced her way into Heaven on June 17, 2017 after a long illness. She was born in Boston, the only child of Anna and Joseph Costello. Mary began taking Irish step dancing at a young age and it became a joy and a passion for her. She started the Mary Madden School of Irish Dance in South Boston, and surrounding areas which lasted for over 40 years. Many of her students have become prominent Irish step dance teachers and adjudicators. Students of her school have performed at nursing homes, parades, nightclubs and other venues. They also won numerous regional and national awards, and have attended the World Championships in Ireland. Mary was a certified teacher of Irish Dance (TCRG) by AN Coimisiun le Rlnci Gaelacha (The Irish Dance Commission), Dublin Ireland, The Irish Dance Teachers Association of North America (IDTANA), Inc., and The New England Irish Dance Teachers Association. Mary was also recognized by the New England Irish Dance Teachers Association for 25 years of teaching Irish Dance in 1992.

In addition to Grades 1-10 being offered at the North Jersey Championships depending on the interest level, Grades 11 and 12 will be offered to candidates wishing to take them. Candidates that would be interested in Grade 11 and 12 need to contact James Early asap to obtain an application which will need to be filled out and returned to him asap. This needs to be done to determine what examiner will be able to do these exams. There will be an anticipated cap on these exams. All applicants should have their applications in by July 21 2017.

Just wanted to say that we had a great time at the Greene O"Leary feis yesterday. Friendly workers - kitchen & registration especially - a nice kind of no-frills feis. The musician was great also - upbeat & on-time. Maureen is very kind to the dancers - Even though it is a rather small feis - it is lots of fun & gets the job done! Thank you, Maureen Greene, and all of the Greene O'Leary workers - cannot wait for next year!

A year later some of these families are asking old TC to take them back. She will take some back but not the ones who talked trash about the school and her dancers when they left. Always take the high road if you can, as you never know what the future holds.

Does anyone know why prizes for Open Girls comps at the murray feis were a small jar of m&ms, but the boys received large trophies - as did the prelim top five places? If anything, the girls work much harder to place - as there are more than just a couple of them in each comp. Other than this - great feis.

Margaret Pike -- IDD, 17:19:00 05/14/17 Sun
This week the Irish Dance World and the MAR lost one of our of our most beloved and respected members, Margaret Pike. Her contributions to the world of Irish Dance were many, teacher adjudicator, but most of all a friend and mentor to all. Grace and elegance were her trademarks. As many have said, you could always identify a Pike dancer.

I'd need them back by the 27th, but if they won't be back in time, I'll just wait until after.

Is it just me, or does it seem that poor sportsman ship seems to be at its high point. Yesterday while watching several teenaged age groups being awarded I saw:

* A teenager stand with a disgusted look on her face when she received an overall placement.

* A teenager roll her eyes when she received second

* Kids clustered whispering loudly when another child was awarded

I completely understand that they each have their own personal goals and that a particular placement may have fallen short, but what happened to being a gracious winner and competitor.

In other sports I have seen first hand, a coach bench a star player for having a horrible attitude and being a poor sportsman. I wish that could carry over to dance.

I am sorry to rant. I just wish better sportsmanship was something that was valued as much as awards.

Hey NER! I recently took over the NER feisana and distribution for Rutherford Shoes. If your dance school is wearing Rutherford lights/heavies, Hullachans, or Antonio Pacelli lights and looking to get a school fitting at a recital or gearing up for NANs I am booking for the month of June now! I also carry Katie Luck and Antonio Pacelli socks, and obviously the Sparkling Stepper training gear avaiable at SparklingStepper.com (including our new NANs tank)!

Send me an e-mail at sparklingstepper@yahoo.com to book a date at your studio or with any further questions!

Our school dressmaker does not make American Girl sized dresses, but she said she had heard of someone in Massachusetts who does. I thought I would try crowdsourcing here to see if anyone knows who that might be! We have a few families in the school who might be interested if I could find a dressmaker willing to do this!

Thanks in advance for any info.

At the Horgan Feis on Saturday,I was sitting next to this poor woman who was doing her daughter's hair when the champ stage musician came out of nowhere and started verbally assaulting her because a woman had used the men's room (not this lady).
He was just mad it happened and decided to yell at this lady because he thought she should have stopped the other adult from using the Men's room. But the worst part is when she stated back to him "stop yelling at me, I wasn't in the Men's room", he called her a bitch in front of all our kids!
This man should not be around children. He totally crossed the line.
This family was just minding their business and he obviously has some anger issues.
My daughter danced to him on the champ stage and we couldn't wait to get away from him.
We will certainly rethink attending feis he will be playing at in the future.

I have a question about buying a used dress from someone in another state. How do you usually handle the payment? If though check, do you send the check and then wait for the dress? Or is it typical to give a deposit, try it and return if it doesn't fit?

Is the rule that a dancer has to adhere to the rules in a region where they are feising, not their home region? A first last year and a first this year would mean the dancer has to go to OC to feis in NER?
