senior lady (mid twenties) looking to continue dancing once I move. At this point looking for adult scene but maybe open to still competing. Thanks.

[> Subject: Welcome! Will you be living within the actual city of Boston, or will you be north, west or south of it? Traffic is atrocious so recommendations would need to factor in your location. I'm putting the link to the Ladies 22+ results from last year's NE Oireachtas inside. Even if you decide against competing, it's a good indicator of which schools have a good group of senior dancers.

[> Subject: From my knowledge I believe there is only a few schools that have senior dancers around your area. OSC, Forbes, Kenny, and Haley.

[> Subject: Welcome to the region! We have a really great group of senior dancers in the region. I do strongly encourage you to do your research. There are severeal great schools with seniors but some have bullying issues.

[> Subject: Bullying? We’re all over the age of 22 here in the senior ladies group. I LOVE our group. Don’t see ANY bullying at a feis or a major. If anything, they’re one of the most supportive group of people I’ve ever met.

[> [> Subject: That's been our experience too. No bullying, just hardworking dancers supporting each other while juggling careers and/or grad school plus dance. If the poster above you feels bullied, they should change schools because that is not the norm with us older dancers.

[> [> [> Subject: Didn't want to be too specific but maybe need to explain. The bullying happens in-school, not in the group, that's why I encouraged doing the research. Totally agree that this is an amazing group of women. OP- whatever school you end up at, you are going to be very welcomed!

I think you may find different answers. I have only competed in adults (currently 41yrs old) and found that schools that tend to be strong in champs don't necessarily have strong adult programs. I like to compete - placed 7th in adult trad set last fall - but there's no way I could keep up in a typical champ environment between work and kids. I love my school's adult environment - super supportive no matter what level someone is (from 60+ yr old beginners to 23yr old senior ladies) - but I do think you need to know what type of environment you want to find the best fit.
