Subject: The O'Faolain Academy Friendship Feis and An Samhra Feis in St. Louis 7/22-7/23

Hello, Everyone!

Now that Nationals are over, we hope you are are looking at your feis calendar, and considering visiting St. Louis for a fantastic double feis weekend 7/22 and 7/23! Here's why we think you should come:

1) The Friendship Feis is a BLACK & WHITE, NO WIG FEIS! We're keepin' it real, and want to offer everyone an opportunity to let their hair down (literally), beat the heat, and focus on dancing, friendships, and fun! In between costumes? No worries! For those that love to dress up, An Samhra is a regular costumed feis. Something for everybody!

2) TWO IN THE LOU!- Who doesn't like a double dip? Still trying to knock out those Oireachtas qualifications or place out of that ONE dance you've been trying for all year? You've got two chances here!

3) The Friendship Feis is hosting the Rock 'n' Reel, in partnership with An Samhra, at the conclusion of competition on SATURDAY! Dancers can compete solo or in groups of up to four, and choreograph their party pieces to fun music! Theme costumes are welcome, but not necessary at all! Check out the song selections here:

4) An Samhra is offering Grade Exams on Friday, 7/21. You can find out more info here:

5) The venue is gorgeous! Beautiful outdoor pool, a mall across the street w/ a cinema, tons of kid-friendly restaurants, tons of ritzy restaurants, all within walking distance! If the block is filled, ask us about other, nearby hotel options!

6) Championship dance-offs for perpetual trophies both days! Crystal champ awards on Saturday!

7) No late fees if you get your entries in by this Friday, 7/14!

8) If you don't get your entry in by Friday, you can still sign up on the day (YAY!), but you'll have to pay the late fee (Cue up sad trombone). We don't want you to have to pay this, so hopefully, everyone will sign up by Friday!

9) We have hired four 2017 Mid-America Oireachtas judges! You have a great opportunity to wow them with a sneak preview of your awesomeness!

10) We love our feis friends, and hope you will join us for a weekend of friendship, family, fun, and DANCING!!!!!!!
