[> Subject: If your child enjoys the competitive aspects of Irish dance, you may want to check results of last year's New England Oireachtas to see which schools are placing well. There are other factors to consider of course but I do wish we had paid a bit more attention to that when moving here from another region.

lesson learned

[> [> Subject: This is a tricky one, though. Some of these schools are newer, smaller schools, or recent splits, and so by the numbers they might not look as successful, but if you were able to look at the percentage of their dancers entered who placed, they might actually do very well

Also, a bigger school might tend to play favorites with their current champs and it might be hard for someone new to move into those cliques. You are right that there are other factors to consider

[> [> [> Subject: But that's not practical; you really can't look at the percentage of those who placed vs. entered, unless you were there last year, have the book and marked off the several who were registered but didn't show up. Taking a chance on a new school in their first year is a gamble that some are willing to take and some are not. Everyone has to decide what's best for their own dancer.

tho I agree it's tricky
