But it would be even better if I knew which teams were going! Anyone know? I'm hoping some kind adults will post about the ceili competition, # of teams, dances, etc. This is IT for adults and I hate that we get so little press/info. C'mon adults, promote yourselves! We're on your side.

Irish Mystique is an epic journey into the magical legends of the the Celts. The show will feature spellbinding characters such as the lordly Sidhe folk (pronounced She), the Will-o-the-Wisp, the seductive Selkies, and the hauntingly beautiful Banshee. There will also be thunderous dances from the warrior Celts and inspiring songs and dances from the Pirate Queen, Grace O'Malley.

Come explore the myths of the ancient Celts. With hauntingly beautiful singing and riveting storytelling our world class performers will captivate your imagination with their inspiring Irish dances. You will hear all original cutting edge epic music composed by Daniel Nelson and performed by Keltish with Chelle Fulk, Christopher McCarney, Michael Kazalski, and Daniel Nelson.

All the music and the dances are original creations from the mind of experienced performer and composer Daniel Nelson. The music is performed live by world class musicians from the band Keltish and backed by original symphonic scores.

Irish Mystique tickets are on sale for the July debut at the Kimball Theater in Williamsburg VA! The shows are July 26th and 27th at 7pm. Tickets are $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and students, and $15 for children under 12. To purchase tickets for the shows call Colonial Williamsburg at 1-800-history.

Tickets are on sale at the Weinberg Center in Frederick Maryland for Friday August 16th at 7pm and Saturday August 17th at 7pm. Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and students, and $15 for children under 12.

From what I can tell, Feis Rochester will not offer adult categories. Is that correct? There's no syllabus out yet, but FeisWeb registration is open, and I don't see any adult category for solos and/or ceilis.

And Dongan Feis doesn't seem to have adults either this year, correct? I see 18+ categories added, but no adults. I do remember reading a post about how few/no adults signed up last year.

I'm trying to plan out a feis schedule and budget for the summer, but those of these feiseanna were originally on my to-attend list. Bummed.

Our exciting and challenging course is designed for dance students and teachers who are serious about improving their technique and professional knowledge. We offer an invigorating and refreshing approach to Irish Dance for current Irish Dancers, Irish Dance teachers and other Dance teachers wanting to broaden their spectrum

A master dance class is a class given to dancers/teachers by very accomplished dancers/teachers in order to improve technical skills. Master teachers are often company directors, company members, choreographers or rehearsal assistants. Master classes offer advanced students the opportunity to learn from experts. Master dance classes build strength and bring your focus back to building technique.

Taking a master class lets you see first-hand what new teachers have to offer, and also gives you an opportunity to dance alongside a roomful of unfamiliar faces. Smart dancers constantly look for ways to improve.

One of my pet peeves has been the "family entry fee" even if a person is attending alone. Here's a quote from the Nation's Capital Feis entry form: "Saturday SINGLE Adult competitors who enter through Feisworx will receive a $20 refund when they receive their number at the Feis Desk".

Laureen O'Neill-James confirmed that. So, those of us who enter alone will pay the $20 up front but will get it back when we check in.

I just wanted to share this video. I dance for Clann Na Cara in Buffalo, NY, and we have a rapidly growing adult group. When I started at CNC two years ago, there were only a handful of adults dancing regularly each week. Now, we have at least 20 dancers showing up for class each week!

My teachers were kind enough to invite our adult group to perform at the school's annual fundraiser pub night. Some of us danced as children and have been retired from comps for 5+ years; others of us are complete beginners.

I choreographed this fun performance to suit the abilities of all our adults. Unfortunately, I was not able to actually attend the show, but the dancers recorded it for me.

Here's the link to the performance on YouTube:

Very proud of them on a job well done :)

There was a question posted on dance.net asking about adult dancers and the five year rule. Apparently, there is almost no mention of it anymore in the official rules. Also, someone said that it was being phased out because now that adults can dance slow-speeds, there may be adults who dropped down who may want to re-enter adult levels. Thoughts?

An Oireachtas Prayer -- from Ryan Dunns website, 14:19:19 11/21/12 Wed
An Oireachtas Prayer

Good and Gracious God,
We place ourselves in your presence and invite
your Spirit as we begin this year's Oireachtas.
We have practiced.
We have rehearsed.
We have sacrificed for the love of Irish dance.
We have invested time and money and effort.
Lord, we ask only that you help us to do our best this Day.
May we remember that underneath
the wigs, the dresses, the sparkles, the make-up, and the sock glue
that we dance with bodies and talents you gave us.
With every click and every treble, O Lord,
may we give you glory
and celebrate the the gift of our teachers
who have shown us how to dance.

Lord, in twenty years, it will be hard to recall how we placed.
Time will have faded our memories of where we stood on the podium
or what medal we took home.
We will remember, though, the good times we have shared
and we will tell with delight the stories we remember.
Bless this weekend, Bless our dancing,
and bless those who have given us the gift of Irish dance.

May we all dance today as we hope to dance in eternity:
members of the heavenly ceili
dancing to You, the music of our lives.

We pray this through Christ our Lord,
our Teacher, our Musician, our Music, and our Metronome.

Amen.


Ryan danced as a child along with his sisters in the MWR and then used his talents as a feis musician to share the dance with future generations but he is also a Priest and shares another spirit to all.
