I only see boys comps and trad sets on the google site and facebook. I am looking for Girls U11. If anyone knows where to access it, I would very much appreciate it. My phone died :(

My daughter lost her blue floral Vera Bradley wristlet this weekend at the O. Either at the Marriott or the convention center, although most likely in the ballroom during awards Saturday night. It had a little bit of cash, a gas card and her driver's license. If by chance anyone found it, I would love to hear from you.

My daughter worked so hard. She practices an hour to an hour and a half a day and she did trad sets today. No recall and she is devastated a lot of her team mates who aren’t practicing recalled and she is just asking herself why should she get up and practice every day when they just do five minutes here or there and see better results. How do I️ show her that her hard work will pay off? This is her third O and she had a recall last year.

Our gavin jacket was dropped to the hotel tonight and will not even go over his head. Is there anyone in the Marriott right now with sewing experience? We are willing to pay whatever for someone to alter it. If not does anyone have suggestions of how we can get it on him?

Date Posted: 06:52:11 11/13/17 Mon

With the Oireachtas only a few days away, tensions are high, nerves are higher, and it is easy to forget to practice kindness. Our dancers have worked so hard for their few minutes on the stage and we, as parents, have spent a ton of money, time, mileage, and emotional energy preparing for this weekend. After all of that work and expense, it is easy to get frustrated when things don't go the way we think they should, when people do things that annoy us, or when the hotel/conference center inevitably messes something up.
I hope we can keep in mind that we are our children's role models and how we react to those frustrations will set the example for our children. I also hope we can keep this in perspective. It is Irish dance, not brain surgery. If things don't go as planned or hoped for, it is heartbreaking, but not life ending.
Let's try to be patient with one another, clean up after ourselves, (for the love of all that is holy, take care of your own messes) and be considerate of each other.
Now I need to go glue some stones on a dress, condition the wig, polish the shoes, clean the tiara, and...

Hello! We are in need of a new dress for our 13 YO daughter in Prelim, due to growth spurt! Anyone in NE region looking to sell a dress that might work for a 5'5" dancer ( bust=33", natural waist=28.5, hips=33.75"? We will be at the Verlin feis, but are also willing to travel within 1-1/2 hours of Hartford to try on a promising dress. Thanks!

Dancers have the right to remain in Prelim through 12/31 regardless of how many firsts they win in the current calendar year. Nobody is under any obligation to move up and out of your child's way, nor do they need to sit home when they enjoy feising. If you want your child to win, try having them practice more so they'll be the best dancer, not the best of what's left. Furthermore, the decision to remain in prelim for the rest of the year is usually made by the TC, and NOT by the child. Take a good look in the mirror, people. You're alleged adults attacking a child. You should be ashamed.

Are there certain steps that are required in each dance? btw, the judge liked her and placed her overall, I've just never seen a comment like this. TIA

In an age where every one is so quick to complain, I feel we need to acknowledge the good to achieve change. It is a pleasant surprise to see the number of New England judges is minimal at your feis. What a breath of fresh air to have the majority of adjudicators from a different region. Again thanks for the effort given in selecting your adjudicating panel.
