Date Posted: 06:36:58 09/23/19 Mon

We attended the New England Autumn feis yesterday and I was honestly amazed at the lack of consideration and manners in one of the champs rooms. Crowds of people were in the room and the musician had to ask for quiet several times. People were practicing in hard shoes while girls were dancing their sets on the other side of the room. There were many kids just hanging out and talking in bunches so it was difficult to see the dancers and to get back to where our stuff was parked to change shoes. The poor stage manager had enough on her hands checking everyone in and no one could hear her when she announced the next group. My daughter looked at me at one point as she was trying to get back to the little square foot of space we had carved out to change shoes and begged me not to say anything because she knew how rude people were, and knew I don't handle it well. I understanding waiting in the room if you are the next comp. up, but be polite. If you are there to watch a friend dance, be quiet while others are dancing. If you have a burning need to talk about the Tic Tok boys who were there, leave the room.

Moving to Peabody MA from the Midwest and need your help finding a fairly competitive school for my U14 open daughter. I’ve searched online the best I could but there doesn’t seem to be THAT many schools very close to us. I’m willing to travel an hour (a little more if necessary) to get my daughter into a good school. Money is also a wee tight at the moment, so if your a mother from a school and know your tuition is through the roof, I politely ask you to refrain from answering with that school.

I'm considering going to Constitution State feis this year and was curious about the state of the floors. I know it's a bit of an old fashioned feis, which isn't an issue, but knowing it's outdoors I'd like just a little more information--are they slippery or small, etc?

I noticed during multiple competitions sunday that parents were talking to the judges. The parents also belonged to O'Shea Chaplin. Anyone else see anything wrong with this. I don't think its fair that a parent from that school is talking with judges as their child is about to go on stages. Maybe I'm just been picky buy wanted to see what other people thought about this.

Hi everyone, so I was a feis vendor for about 10 years but gave it up a couple of years ago. I still have a lot of merchandise that I'd like to clear out. I'd like to sell in bulk at deeply discounted prices to other vendors or anyone who can use it. I am putting together a spread sheet of all the items, sizes, colors, and prices. Everything is ID related. I've got items like crowns, earrings, costume jewelry, kickpants, tee shirts, medal banners, ID dresses for American Girl dolls, and matching outfits for girls and their dolls. For some things I might have only a dozen or so items, but for others I might have two hundred. If you are interested in purchasing large lots, please let me know and I will email you a spread sheet or I can let you know about any particular items.

Premium quality Helen Doyle Irish Dance Dress Bag for sale. In excellent condition. A couple very minor scuffs on the exterior. 18-inch size bag is perfect for up to three dance dresses, whether for a young child or adult dancer. Perfect for feising! I was also able to use the bag, without any problems, as a carry-on when traveling domestically and internationally. Black with blue trim. Original price including international shipping (it is from New Zealand)) was $145 (fortunately, I did not incur a customs fee). I am offering bag for $75. Located in CT. Please leave a reply if you are interested and I can forward photos. Thx!

We spent Sunday at the Lynn feis. We arrived at 1 and my son was scheduled to dance at 2:30. He didn't dance until 4:30. He wasn't doing the second chance. we had to wait even longer to get Awards which happened at 6:30. He medaled in his soft shoe and for a prize he got Ritz cheese and crackers.How cheap could they be. We spent a good portion of the day, paid to come to this feis and for all of his hard work he gets Ritz crackers for a medal round, come on!!!If you are going to give candy bars have enough so that the people at the end of the feis get something deserving for their efforts. It ran so far behind with the second chance. If you are not doing the second chance, you shouldn't have to wait around until that competition finishes before you get your Awards. Thank God he won his competition. Sadly, we are not going back.

Hi all, I just wanted to share because I know a lot of parents are thinking about the best way to make sure their dancers are getting the nutrition they need to grow healthily and be competitive. I work with a fantastic registered dietitian who is great with female athletes. As someone who is nutrition-knowledgeable and a fitness professional, I really appreciate her approach. She is great at providing guidance and steering girls away from disordered thinking, really understands the needs of competitive athletes, and keeps food fun and enjoyable. She's based in CT and also does video conferencing. I'd highly recommend her. I linked to her email in this post, but am happy to share more info with anyone who's interested!

The weekend is upon us and that means the very first Murray Academy Winter Feis is tomorrow! Over the last two days, much of our snow has melted, thankfully and the weather looks great. Here are a few reminders:

1. This is a blackout feis! No wigs, no dresses, no buckles or bling. Hair should be neatly pulled off the face with black dance attire and black tights. Please remember a safety pin for those number cards! See our feis syllabus for further information on attire.

2. Parking is available all around the school. If there are no spaces please carefully park along the side of the road, being mindful of snow banks.

3. At the Cooperative Middle School venue, camping areas will be in shorter supply, especially in the Band Room. “Camping” (where you set your stuff) is allowed along the huge hallway loop that encircles the library. The Gym locker rooms will be open as well. Please refrain from camping in the lobby or cafeteria/awards areas.

4. Lastly, if you or someone you know did not sign up for the feis, there will be NO day-of registrations taken at the door and as with any feis, there are no refunds.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO A FUN-FILLED DAY OF IRISH DANCE!
WIG FREE & FEIS!

This is a unique situation but we thought it would be fair to offer NO LATE FEE for new entries before this MONDAY at 8am. LATE FEES will be applied to entries after that time. Entries will close once our cap of 740 is reached or at 8 am this Wednesday, whichever comes first. Thank you for your patience. Let’s Wig Free and Feis!!

If you cannot make the new date, please notify us by Saturday the 19th at 12:00pm. To be as fair as possible, we will issue you a refund through Feis Web, but if you don’t notify us by 12:00 pm EST Saturday, 1/19/19, your entry will not be refunded. No exceptions.

My daughter is dancing in the Fairfield County feis this weekend; Trying to make sure I understand stage schedule as it feels different than others she has done. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1AhkQsFOv1kaTvHYbFPXqvnkZj8U96zzbptTvqjA0Psg/edit#gid=1876898616

Her first comp is #240, the 8th one listed for her stage starting at 10am. Using a "stage calculator" I got that her comp wouldn't start till closer to 11:15. I know there's a lot of room for error.....

Does she still need to check in at 10am, or should we be OK planning for say, 10:30? (all pretending htere are no weather issues this weekend!!! Saturday looks OK I think?)

Wondering how many dancers before a comp gets split into more than one group (novice/prizewinner). I know it may vary by feis, but do most split if more than 20? 25? Are there rules about this or just at discretion of feis based on space/time?

My daughter lost her cross (silver, gold, and copper on a silver chain) at the Saugus feis. She arrived around 12:30 for a 2 pm Prize winner O15 and left around 3:45. Our things were by the gym, closest to Stage 5 and the vendors, across from the women's bathroom. She thinks it may have fallen out of her pocket near the bathroom. Please contact me if found. It was a gift from her grandmother.

I'm excited to tell you that I just published "Sound the Warning." This is an historical fiction book about the Penal Laws during the 18th century in Ireland. The target audience is 8-14 year olds, but older kids like it too. I don't know about you, but in all my history courses here in the USA, I never even heard of the Penal Laws. It wasn't until my daughter became an Irish dancer that I learned about them. I thought that today's children need to hear about this historical period so I did something about it! My characters are USA twins(one of whom is an Irish dancer) who time travel to Ireland and have all sorts of adventures there, so it's a fun read for children. They come away from the book having learned a lot of Irish culture and history. If interested, the book just went live on Amazon.com. Here is the link:

Subject: As a parent of a male dancer in New England, I am extremely upset that the boys are not being permitted to dance on the main stages at the Oireachtas. This is a qualifying event for the hard working dancers and they are not awarded the same opportunities as others trying to qualify. Advanced beginner, Novice and Prizewinner dancers that are not competing in a championship are permitted to dance on the main stage. This is clearly money grab for the organizers.

The Lenihan teachers would like to thank everyone for attending the Southern CT State Feis on Sunday. Many of you attend our feis every year and we are very grateful to have you back each time. To the first timers, thank you for coming and hope to see you again!
We also want to thank our tireless volunteers. Dancers, moms, dads, and siblings, we could not possibly run a successful feis without them!
Thanks again and see you in the spring!

It's always such a packed feis but it still runs so smoothly. I love the centralized announcements in the gym and the amazing stage hands and other volunteers. Everyone was so kind despite it being a long day with so many people to deal with. Also like the rotating judges in the gym. Thank you for giving our kids the opportunity to compete right before Oireachtas!

Schedule inside the first reply. A few notes- we have combined quite a few competitions. Any competitions with a "/" between them have been combined.
A few of the earlier championship competitions will dance soft shoe first. This is because several dancers in each of those competitions are dancing a figure first, so they will already be in soft shoe.
Competitions up to and including u14 in the Main Gym and Auxiliary Gym will dance 3 at a time.
Our schedule for the contemporary sets in the foyer is a little different this year. We will start that stage right at 8:30 and your set competition may come up before your preliminary competition.

Looking forward to a great day on Sunday!

I think Voy should change it’s name to the bash board... do you think the Odwyer school intentionally wanted this to happen?? It was their very First Feis and obviously have some things to work out.. it was nice to see a different style Feis rather than being crammed in a highschool Gymnasium with bumpy slippery floor taped right over the gym floor.. look at some of the positives and give them a chance to work on the negatives...
