[> Subject: In a word, cost! I know inflation is a thing, but 1-2 years ago grades were $8/dance. Most are up to $10/dance and with two competing, a single feis runs us over $100.

With all things dance increasing in cost, we are getting tired of just shelling out more. Instead we are cutting way back. We even went so far as choosing to sit out NANS. We were just in Orlando 2 years ago for NANS, so it was a much easier decision to skip than had it been in a place we had never been and that we could extend into a family vacation. After years of just shelling out more, we are choosing to shift the spending to things that benefit the entire family.

Also, can't speak for others but we are opting to attend feisanna that are more closely aligned with the new age breakdowns in older groups. If it's a feis that is 16+ or 18+, and we can choose one that is u21, 21+ etc., we will choose that instead.

[> [> Subject: So nice that this is an option now. Back when dd was in prelim, the oldest prelim was always 16+. So much has changed. There were no sashes or medal rounds for prelims in our day, only for champs.
