Subject: Cost we went from $40/50 a Feis to up to 72 now... then the gas and food the food is also a lot more.. $3 for one donut or a soda at a Feis at a high school is crazy.. I don't mind paying if the dance school gets it but the town or company that runs the cafeteria?

In reply to: NE mom 's message, "Remember not so long ago all the feis would be full before the cut off? What has changed? I am particularly surprised about cape cod. A few years ago that would've been closed for registrations at this point. Not looking for trouble, seriously just wondered do you think it's an oversaturation?" on 06:44:57 04/23/17 Sun

So many kids in novice and prizewinner my daughter has danced with quit
It seems lile it is hard for the casual dancer to continue.. with the fancy costumes $$$ in grades and schools focusing on placement at majors...seems like the kids from the smaller schools are happier not focused on the perfect look and dance through high school ... not critizing any school we as parents need to find the right match for our child and what they want from dance... you do not need to Feis every weekend... most kids will make it to prelim by high school...

[> Subject: Personally for us, with so many feiseanna being offered, we will no longer be attending ones that lump 17+ in open. Many in MAR do 19+. Might even consider some 18+ if they do not have the same 10 NE judges year after year. With so many to choose from and the expense of it all, we are going for fewer age groups lumped together and better judging panels.

just me

[> [> Subject: I would prefer single age groups after 18 also but it's also a bummer to compete against one or two dancers. At least combined groups create a larger comp.

[> [> [> Subject: Yes, but looking at Cape feis as an example; all other open comps are 10 or less and 17+ group is 22. Why do they need to be twice the size as the other groups

I don't get it

[> [> [> [> Subject: I don't know the breakdown of how many are in each age group st Cape. U18 may have a lot, U19may only have 3 or 4, the rest may be older? Where do you cut off? (More)

After this past year of going into U19, we've learned to basically see where DD places in regards to the others in her age group and not obsess on the overall placement. In OC, to us that's what matters more. If she wins, it's even better! It's not like it gets you anything other than bragging rights...in prelim however, yes it should be single age groups as much as possible.
