Still have these for sale cheap! Just want to get them out of the garage. 6 colors: 2 each of yellow, green, red 3 each of black, white and 4 each of blue and purple.
New these would run $700-$800
I am selling them for $200!! They are in great shape...just the usual scuff marks from hard shoes. Some of the velcro on the edges needs a little TLC (i.e. super glue) but that's it.
I'm sure they would clean up very well if you wanted to (not much point IMO).
Don't want to just throw them out, but they've GOT TO GO!!

Not going to mention the name of the feis as I'm not trying to embarass or "out" someone, but I noticed someone registered for both adult solos and an "and over" non-traditional set. If a loophole exists that allows adults to do this that would be great, but my understanding was it had to be one or the other. Please correct me if I'm wrong as I'd love to do a non-trad the next time one is offered seperately at a feis. Thanks!

Musicians, Artist, writers, poets.
Last year at the Big Apple Feis Mrs Loretta Thiele, whose husband Paul F. Thiele was a big supporter of Irish cultural organizations and events throughout his lifetime came up to NY. Several scholarships were awarded to winners in the Irish dance competitions in his memory. Mrs Thiele was willing to give scholarships to the music/arts section of the feis but there was not the entry that she expected. (she said I want to hear little musicians playing their music and the sound and the beat bouncing off the walls) To encourage this she was willing to give scholarships to the musicians if there was more than at least three bands and five in the solo competitions. She said she wants the music to reach the heavens and lift everyone's spirits. Mrs Thiele has notified us that she is willing to do the same this year, but she wants to see as many musicians that the hall can hold on Fri. nights ceili,session and she wants to see the music competitions full.
This year BAF 2011, Mrs. Theille is traveling up to see what NY has to offer in Irish music, song and dance and yes dancers she will let us know which competitions she is going to sponsor with scholarships
See the winners of The Big Apple 2010 Paul Thiele Scholarships:
Scholarships in the amount of $500 were awarded to the top winners in the Girls Open Championship Competitions to Codie Shiels (Doherty School of Irish Dance, Belfast); Kelly McCourt (McDade-Cara School, PA); and Fiona Bradley (Gray-Gillan-Owens School, CT). Conor Regan (Inishfree School, NY) was awarded a $500 scholarship in the Open Boys Championship Competition. The Inishfree School of Irish Dance was the recipient of a $1000 scholarship for being the school with the most entries in the feis. Alesandra “Ali” Doughty (McDade-Cara School, PA) was crowned the overall Champion of the Sunday Dance-Off Competition.

Other events during the feis weekend included a Breton Dance workshop given by BZH New York; a reading by popular children’s author Brenna Briggs of The Liffey Rivers Irish Dancer Mysteries; and a Fashion Show. Morgan Murray, Kristin Grant, Angelina Glick and Kian Paliani were the recipients of $50 scholarships for their notable Irish dancing costumes.

I am a dancer who started as a teen. Now I'm in my early twenties and still in novice/prizewinner, so my competition is almost entirely high schoolers much younger than me, which makes me feel very discouraged. Do you think that in the near future, there will be enough other dancers in my situation that the attitude towards older Irish dancers will change? It'd be so reassuring to me to be able to look forward to competing solos at the oireachtas as an adult, do you think this could ever happen?
