Just wanted to say that we had a great time at the Greene O"Leary feis yesterday. Friendly workers - kitchen & registration especially - a nice kind of no-frills feis. The musician was great also - upbeat & on-time. Maureen is very kind to the dancers - Even though it is a rather small feis - it is lots of fun & gets the job done! Thank you, Maureen Greene, and all of the Greene O'Leary workers - cannot wait for next year!

Subject: Exactly. Have seen families depart full of indignation, telling all who will listen that the old TC is the reason their child has not met their dance goals. A year later some of these families are asking old TC to take them back. She will take some back but not the ones who talked trash about the school and her dancers when they left. Always take the high road if you can, as you never know what the future holds.

There is also another parent from our school this happened to that stayed in the resort so I would check your online transactions ASAP just in case.

Does anyone know why prizes for Open Girls comps at the murray feis were a small jar of m&ms, but the boys received large trophies - as did the prelim top five places? If anything, the girls work much harder to place - as there are more than just a couple of them in each comp. Other than this - great feis.

Our school dressmaker does not make American Girl sized dresses, but she said she had heard of someone in Massachusetts who does. I thought I would try crowdsourcing here to see if anyone knows who that might be! We have a few families in the school who might be interested if I could find a dressmaker willing to do this!

Thanks in advance for any info.

Subject: Is anyone else tired of poor sportsmanship at awards?

Disgraceful

Is it just me, or does it seem that poor sportsman ship seems to be at its high point. Yesterday while watching several teenaged age groups being awarded I saw:

* A teenager stand with a disgusted look on her face when she received an overall placement.

* A teenager roll her eyes when she received second

* Kids clustered whispering loudly when another child was awarded

I completely understand that they each have their own personal goals and that a particular placement may have fallen short, but what happened to being a gracious winner and competitor.

In other sports I have seen first hand, a coach bench a star player for having a horrible attitude and being a poor sportsman. I wish that could carry over to dance.

I am sorry to rant. I just wish better sportsmanship was something that was valued as much as awards.

Hey NER! I recently took over the NER feisana and distribution for Rutherford Shoes. If your dance school is wearing Rutherford lights/heavies, Hullachans, or Antonio Pacelli lights and looking to get a school fitting at a recital or gearing up for NANs I am booking for the month of June now! I also carry Katie Luck and Antonio Pacelli socks, and obviously the Sparkling Stepper training gear avaiable at SparklingStepper.com (including our new NANs tank)!

Send me an e-mail at sparklingstepper@yahoo.com to book a date at your studio or with any further questions!

At the Horgan Feis on Saturday,I was sitting next to this poor woman who was doing her daughter's hair when the champ stage musician came out of nowhere and started verbally assaulting her because a woman had used the men's room (not this lady).
He was just mad it happened and decided to yell at this lady because he thought she should have stopped the other adult from using the Men's room. But the worst part is when she stated back to him "stop yelling at me, I wasn't in the Men's room", he called her a bitch in front of all our kids!
This man should not be around children. He totally crossed the line.
This family was just minding their business and he obviously has some anger issues.
My daughter danced to him on the champ stage and we couldn't wait to get away from him.
We will certainly rethink attending feis he will be playing at in the future.
