  • Immigration -- Aislin, 06:16:41 11/10/09 Tue [1]
    Hi everyone, I am doing college research on Irish immigration to the United States in the last twenty years. I am collecting data right now and have created an online survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=C8JgDls1EbymPIGYQuFQ3A_3d_3d If you immigrated to the U.S. from Ireland in the last twenty years I would greatly appreciate your taking my survey as it provides invaluable information for the study. As well I'd greatly appreciate it if you could pass this survey along to anyone else. Thank you.

    Hi, All. This is a link to a shirt that I have. I actually have two of them, both size 14. Just in case you have twin dancers!!

    One is brand new in the package, the other has been worn probably 5 times. Great shape, not even stinky.

    You can have both for $20 ($30 each, new).

    Thanks!

He has a very narrow foot and decided he "needs" different shoes for the O. Grrr. They are gorgeous but I can't return them so I am selling them for $85. -- julieannerich AT hotmail DOT com.

  • Boy costume dilemma. Advice welcome. More inside. -- Boy dancer mom, 11:12:34 07/29/09 Wed [10]
    My younger teen son is an OC/WQ dancer. He is having a new shirt made for the O. Previously, shirts were chosen for him. This time he has input. I thought that would be a good thing. Silly me! We got several samples and I think there are 2-3 promising options that would look nice on him. He has fixated on a very garish option. Aside from the fact that I don't think the shade is flattering, it is a color/pattern that will . . (trying to think of a good way to say this) uh, reinforce stereotypes about boy dancers. (That's an understatement, by the way). He knows this but he is a kid who is confident and frankly thinks it's funny when people make assumptions. In short, he doesn't care. His argument is that the point of an ID shirt is to get noticed and if it is well tailored and he loves it, who cares? He has worked very hard and I want him to be happy with his costume, especially since he plans to retire after this year. Dad rolls his eyes and says "if he's happy, I'm happy". What to do? Grit my teeth and honor his wishes? Go behind his back and get the TC to veto it? TC might be ok with the fabric - really don't know. Not sure what judges would think. I do know what the in-laws will think. :) Suggestions?

  • What age do most of the boys start dropping out at? -- curious, 18:41:29 07/15/09 Wed [13]
    With the girls the demands of high school athletics cause a huge number to drop out by 9th grade.

    I imagine it is the same with the boys. The good news I guess is that for those that stick with it some of the numbers battles are reduced in getting to the podium.

  • Novice/PW Shirt and Vest Search??? (see inside) -- DS Mom - Know the search can be frustrating!, 12:14:57 06/01/09 Mon [7]
    I just got back from Burlington Coat Factory and saw lots and lots of bright,colorful,patterned and/or contrasting shirts and a few vests (waist coats). These look to be after Easter leftovers. I've looked here before but never saw this many.

    In case you get there and they don't have the selection or you don't have a Burlington, search the internet for these brands: Georgio Bissoni, Sean John, Kani Gold, Happy Fella and Young Kings by Steve Harvey. Kani Gold had some great colors! For the less daring, there are lots of shirts, at reasonable prices that will appeal to just about everyone.

    No, I do not work there, I was just so happy to see some choices, I wanted to share!!!!!

    Good luck!!!

    Probably would be back if not for the negative impact of that song "The Scottsmans" eh?

    Certainly kilts would give the judges a better look at what the knees ( and how crossed over or not ) and lower feet are doing.

    Good luck all!
