In reply to: Love dance, hate the mind games 's message, "Trying to figure out what is "normal", do most schools require dancers to do ceili to do solos at Oireachtas? If so, are the ceili classes the same price as solo classes? Do you just reduce solo classes so you can afford ceili? Just curious how others manage the mayhem." on 07:32:26 07/12/17 Wed

[> [> Subject: in my dds former school it was required. If you want to do solos, you must do any and all teams that you are asked to do (figure, ceili, mixed teams). Team fees in excess of $2k, not including costuming, wigs, shoes.

Rule applies to all majors. Minimum number of classes set for solos. Team classes are 4-6 hours or more on a weekend depending on number of teams. Dancer injuries, condescending behavior by teachers, disrespect to dancers and families, backstabbing and frustration lead to many leaving. It wasn't about teaching irish dance. It was about TC making as much as they can.

[> [> [> [> Subject: I had wished it was a positive experience for my dd but after years of terrible team classes they became something many dreaded. We joked that we were summoned to be on a team. A few toxic team members and TCs who don't know how to lead with positivity was a terrible mix.
