Subject: The legend of Cape Cod Crooked Feis continues. My DD placed in a competition she didn’t dance in. I feel this feis favors Greater Boston Irish Dance Teachers member schools, what organization is that? I though only CLRG schools are allowed to enter.

The Greater Boston Dance Teachers are all from CLRG schools, just a group of teachers who help each other put on a feis.

Also, don’t ignore that it can be a numbers game as well - host schools will have many dancers attending, thus increasing the odds of one of their dancers winning first place.

Hmmm... So there are about a billion Irish Dance schools in MA and 3 in NH (if we're including Kathy Blake Studio).

So if there are 700 MA dancers at a feis, and there are 7 NH dancers at that same feis, wouldn't it stand to reason that there would be disproportionally more placements by dancers from MA?

Ya know, because Math?

No, I'm not disparaging NH dancers (whether they dance for NH schools or otherwise)... I don't care where the kids are from I think they're all fantastic.

I was referring to the Original Poster ("NH Mom") suggesting that the feis was biased towards MA dancers.

My point was simply that given the fact that there are exponentially more MA schools represented at a feis, that it stands to reason that there would be more placements by dancers from MA schools at said feis.

Heck, even if every single one of the dancers from NH placed, they probably still wouldn't outnumber the placements from MA.

I think the bottom line take-away here is that the OP is clearly a grouch. :)
