    The East Toronto Irish Arts Association brings you the East Toronto Autumn Championships - the very first Oireachtas style feis!

    *the feis will run just like the Oireachtas with Premiere and Solo competitions in the same age groups as the O
    *Boys/Gents will dance with Girls/Ladies is the only difference
    *Please read our syllabus and talk to your teacher if you aren't sure how to enter - you enter just as you would for the Oireachtas
    *Held at the Centennial College Culinary Arts Institute at 937 Progress ave in Scarborough - 2 large non slip stages
    *all out of region judges - 100% recall in solos
    *Premiere and Solo to dance in front of a 3 judge panel - get comments and test out that set!

    *sashes for top 5 in Premiere and Solo

    *In order to present in one day what the Oireachtas does in 3 days the caps for entries are VERY LOW and as such not everyone will be able to be accomodated. We apologize in advance but feel having a positive experience for ECR dancers is paramount
    *Entries open Monday September 24th at 9am

    Any questions that your teacher cannot answer please email me directly as I do not check this board on a regular basis.

  • 2018 Easter Canadian Regional Oireachtas -- QuickFeis, Tue, August 28, 11:30:42am
    Dear Eastern Canadian Dancers!

    I am Bettina, the owner of QuickFeis, and I am very honored and excited to have been selected to work with your regional Oireachtas this year.

    In order for registration to go smoothly, may I ask anyone how plans to attend this year's Oireachtas to please make sure to have a QuickFeis account. Teachers will only be able to register dancers who have a valid QuickFeis account.

    This is really easy:
    Go to www.quickfeis.com
    Click on the SUPPORT tab and make sure to follow all the instructions (including how to add competitors to your account - even if you are a single competitor within your family, you will need to do this extra step).

    Each dance family should get their own account. When you add your competitor (dancer) be sure the following are absolutely correct:
    * Name (as you want it on your award)
    * Date of birth
    * Gender
    * School name - this can be tricky at times because there are other schools with similar names around - so please ask your teacher which school you should select. If your school is not on our list, please email me at quickfeis@gmail.com and I will add it to my list.

    I'm looking forward to a great Oireachtas and to meeting a whole new group of wonderful dancers and their families :)

    Bettina
    QuickFeis

  • BACK-TO-BACK SEPTEMBER FEIS WEEKEND IN MINNESOTA! -- Mary T., Co-Chair, The Minnesota Feis 2018, Mon, August 20, 10:58:21pm
    On Saturday, SEPTEMBER 29, we invite you to join us at the St. Paul RiverCentre on the banks of the Mississippi River in beautiful downtown St. Paul, Minnesota, for THE MINNESOTA FEIS 2018 (visit our web site at http://www.theminnesotafeis.org/ for great information). And then stick around for the ST. PAUL AUTUMN FEIS, on Sunday, SEPTEMBER 30 http://www.idpamn.org/

    Registration is through http://www.feisworx.com/ . Competition on Saturday will start at 8:30 AM (opening ceremonies at 8:15 AM); Sunday’s competition will begin at 8:00 AM. The Championship stage will proceed from OLDEST to YOUNGEST dancers.

    We are offering Trophy Special Set Dance competitions that are open to BOTH Preliminary Champ dancers and Prizewinner dancers who are preparing dances for the Mid-America Oireachtas. For those in U9, it will be traditional set; U10 and above will be non-traditional set.

    Our dance adjudicators for this year:
    Kerry Broderick, New York
    Colleen Coyle Kelly, Pennsylvania
    Michael Patrick Gallagher, Arizona
    Martin Percival, Colorado
    Heather Timm, Ohio
    John Timm, Ohio

    **The treble reel is one of the most fun things to do at a feis, and we are again scheduling these to make participation easier: Champ treble reels will be held throughout the day, and Novice/Prizewinner treble reels will be right at the end of the scheduled lunch break. All treble reel proceeds from The Minnesota Feis will go to support Breast Cancer Research. NEW THIS YEAR at the St. Paul Autumn Feis is a Hornpipe Special dance in memory of Áine O’Shea. Proceeds from this special will be sent to St. Francis Hospice in Blanchardstown in Dublin for the love and care they gave to her in her final days. We encourage everyone to register for both these specials that support such worthy causes!

    Admission is FREE to the public, so bring your family and friends. Also, if you are bringing someone who is a non-dancer, but SINGS OR PLAYS AN INSTRUMENT (or does these in addition to dance!) there is competition for them as well! Just use the Feisworx system to register. Arts and Soda Bread are in there, too.

    In addition to “feising,” there are many things to see and do in St. Paul, Minneapolis, and the surrounding area, including:
    --We were among the last to find out, but Justin Timberlake is in town, and not just to see his Minnesota in-laws! There are still tickets available for his Sept. 28 and 29 shows.
    --The Science Museum of Minnesota https://www.smm.org/, across the street from the RiverCentre.
    --If you have younger ones, the newly remodeled Minnesota Children’s Museum in downtown St. Paul https://mcm.org/
    --After a massive restoration effort, the re-opening of the Minnesota State Capitol building, with the second largest self-supported marble dome in the world, free tours http://www.mnhs.org/capitol/activities/tours
    --The Cathedral of St. Paul, National Shrine of the Apostle Paul, on the hill overlooking the RiverCentre. Named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, the cathedral offers daily masses, and is open to visitors for sightseeing.
    --St. Paul’s Lower Town is a rapidly growing area with shops, eateries, and the recently restored and re-opened major train hub, Union Depot. Restored to its 1920s grandeur, it’s worth a stop http://www.uniondepot.org/
    --The nearby Mall of America https://www.mallofamerica.com/ with its vast array of shopping, dining, hotel, and entertainment experiences, including the indoor theme park Nickelodeon Universe and Sea Life Minnesota aquarium https://www2.visitsealife.com/minnesota/ only 15 minutes from the feis venue. NEW THIS YEAR: The water park hotel next to the Mall of America is now Great Wolf Lodge! https://www.greatwolf.com/minnesota
    --One of the gems of St. Paul is Como Park, with the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, one of the few free zoos in the United States (free parking, too!): http://www.comozooconservatory.org/
    --Over in Minneapolis, we have the Mill City Museum, which has a very “explosive” elevator ride and great views of the Stone Arch Bridge and Mississippi River from its cantilevered viewing platform: http://www.millcitymuseum.org/
    --The Walker Art Center Sculpture Garden in Minneapolis, with its famous Cherry on the Spoon (okay, it’s Spoonbridge and Cherry, but nobody calls it that). There is also a giant blue chicken now, which we haven’t quite figured out… https://walkerart.org/visit/garden
    --Take a cruise on a Mississippi Riverboat with the historic Padelford Riverboats https://riverrides.com/ or along the scenic St. Croix River at the Minnesota-Wisconsin border with the St. Croix Boat & Packet Co. http://www.stillwaterriverboats.com/
    --For those traveling from the east, take in the beginning of autumn at the Wisconsin Dells on the way home! Check out http://www.wisdells.com/wisconsin-dells.htm for more info.

    To avoid the Timberlake price hikes, we have created a hotel block at the new Delta by Marriott hotel, just 12 minutes from the venue. The booking link is available on our website http://www.theminnesotafeis.org/area-hotels.html We are also trying to arrange a few others!

    Lots of fun for everyone, we hope you can join us!

    Doors open at 8. Competitions begin promptly at 9.

    Please leave extra time while traveling - there is a film shoot going on that shouldn’t interfere with you all driving to the Plaza, but we’re familiar with Murphy’s Law!

    Directions from the Holiday Inn Express in downtown Albany to Plaza are posted on the Feis website.

    Parking is $5 (have license ready - it's a state building).

    There is a $10 admission fee at the door for adults. You will receive a wristband.

    Bringing a dress to hang? Beat the line - fill out the form posted to our website. Please, cash only!

    No chairs, food, or drink inside the rooms with dancing. There is plenty of space to sit and eat outside the rooms.

    We'll update on Twitter and Facebook throughout the day - @donganfeis for Twitter

    Hate to bother committee- so asking here first. Little confused - is the set dance for PC a separate comp or combined with the other 2 rounds? Just noticed it said in syllabus that set is combined with other 2 rounds for championship trophy. But it looks like not all registered for set comp. so are they awarding for the 2 rounds and then the 3 combined?

  • Feis na Nollag 2018 -- Committee, Mon, February 19, 12:45:00pm
    We were so happy to have you all in Brooklyn yesterday. It was a great day. We were humbled by everyone’s response to our small tribute to Irish Dancer, Cara Loughran. It was beautiful to see all of the dancers wear her name on their cards as they all danced. It was also beautiful to see how everyone embraced it and took it one step further. I’ve never seen so many people wear purple at once! Thank you! Thank you to Jeanne and Michael Farrel (Head for the World) for making hundreds of ribbons for our competitors and their families. We appreciate your good hearts! Today we are busy wrapping things up. All Grade Level Marks (Beginner, Advanced Beginner, Novice, Prizewinner) Will be emailed to the competitors. They will be sent to the email you used to register for Efeis. Please check your spam/junk mail and if should have questions regarding grades marks, they can be sent to goldenfeisresults at gmail dot com. As this process is manually entered, please allow time. Our connectivity at the venue was slim to none and we apologize that this was a task we could not begin at the feis.

  • North Coast Feis MidAmerica Costume Rules -- Irishmama, Tue, January 09, 03:23:57pm
    The North Coast Feis looks forward to visitors from out of region. If your child is competing in the U8 or U9 age groups PLEASE be aware of our regional costuming rules. The rules are not new to us but they may be to you. Every year we as a committee are put in the difficult position of disallowing a dancer to compete because the parents or teachers were not aware of or did not understand the rules.
    The rules cover all U8 (and below) or U9 competitions (boys and girls). If the competition is classed as U10 or above the rules do not apply to any dancer in the comp even if they individually are under age. If in doubt of compliance please bring an all black replacement as a back up.

    Here are the solo costume guidelines for all U8 and U9 dancers in the Mid America region as of January 2012:

    UNDER 8 and Under 9 COSTUME RULE

    The dress may be one piece or two pieces

    No animal prints

    No low cut necklines

    No decorations including rhinestones or sequins of any kind.

    No reflective fabric / (this does not include satin)

    No embellishments.

    Base material and appliqué materials must be solid colors

    (No plaids, stripes, patterns, flowers or reflective materials).

    Any embroidery and appliqué used on the dress must be of a traditional nature.

    Length must comply with An Coimisiun

    No Jewelry

    Plain Satin Bows in the hair are allowed but bows may not be attached to the dress or used for a cape.

    Plain colored satins that do not include sequins, glitter, or crystals are permissable.

    Buckles without rhinestones are permitted on shoes.

    All current school costumes are grandfathered into the rule regardless of threads or materials. All rhinestones would need to be removed.

    All of the above applies to headpieces, socks and shoes.

    This is for all U8 and U9 Boy and Girl Solo Championships and Traditional Set Competitions at the Oireachtas and all levels U9 and younger at Mid-American feiseanna. Mid-American costume rule apply to all dancers entered in a Mid-American feis.

    Please pass the word to your out of region friends. We want everyone to have the best day possible

  • Grade exams -- please help, Thu, December 14, 01:18:45pm
    Is anyone in the ECR or in proximity planning on hosting grade exams in the months of May or June? Grade 11 in particular? It would be lovely to be aware of it now as it is quite frustrating to sign up and pay for grade exams at a location far away with an early deadline, only to find out days later when it is too late that there will in fact be grades hosted much closer. I would really appreciate it!

  • Love the Roseland feis. Live the big numbers, awards are wonderful. BUT, something has to be done about the one stage. I saw way too many young dancers slip and at least 10 full out fall. A stage that slippery is a huge safety concern. Know a lot of dancers were scared to go up. It would be awful if someone sustained a serious injury as a result of this. Please, this needs to be addressed for next year. -- S, Sun, October 29, 12:23:43pm

  • Registration for Feile Nollaig opening today at iFeis.net. Welcome to iFeis, a new way to feis. We want to share our excitement about being able to support our Irish Dance friends in Canada and Mexico. iFeis now supports credit card payments in local currency in the US, Canada and Mexico and additional countries can easily be added. More inside. -- Win@iFeis.net, Thu, October 26, 10:30:59am
    After years of participating in all of the feis volunteer roles, we decided to take feis registration and tabulations solutions to the next level by leveraging hand held devices to create the first integrated, mobile optimized feis management system. The end goal is to eliminate most of the paper used at a feis and have all your feis information accessible through your mobile device.

    Features include a live stage schedule to see the status of competitions in real time, as well as an online search engine for competitors and competitions to replace a hard copy program book. More features are in progress as we take full advantage of the integration of the iFeis management system

    For the user, iFeis is very different from other solutions as we designed it using contemporary web design principles and concepts employing a best practices approach, which includes a constant quality assurance. Change can be hard, especially when you have used other solutions for many years.

    We have a very responsive support system which can be accessed through the “Contact iFeis” button found anywhere on the iFeis website.

    Please read over the iFeis Account Setup and User Instructions on the iFeis Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/iFeis/) and we look forward to hearing from you and meeting you at the Fiesta Feis in Mexico and Feile Nollaig in Canada.

Due to financial reasons we are no longer able to make the trip from Halifax and if I can get the room filled via this board I'll be able to recoup the $160 plus tax rather than lose it. I booked a traditional room with two queen beds, Thursday-Sunday. Many thanks if you could direct any fellow dancers still looking for a reservation

With a contribution of just 10 dollars, you will be able to pre-order the full album, half of which is designed for practices and has some great guest artists (including Dave Eggar who is the cello player in the Coldplay song Viva La Vida). Each dance track is almost 10 minutes long ,perfect for performances, practice sessions or just plain listening. Katie has been both a competitive dancer in the MidAmerica region as well as a TCRG. This is a great opportunity to support our local talent. Katie is currently on tour with the well loved Irish band, Gaelic Storm. Check out the link below for more info

  • My OC dancer is not improving after being in champ now for over 2 years now. -- report card needed, Wed, September 06, 11:08:13pm
    None of the TCs at her school give any positive feedback on her dancing. It is all just vague negative comments. Is this a sign she should quit? Maybe she doesn't have the right style they like to see.

    So after no improvements and no idea how to actually get better results, can anyone offer any suggestions of what to do in this situation? She hardly gets any cmts at a feis.

    We have set an exit date since it is overwhelmingly frustrating.

  • Hi there - we are new to prelim and planning on attending the GTA feis. There is a note on their site stating that "A three round result will be presented to the Prelim Comps in addition to the regular competition result - regular comp and set comp combined". How does this work? Are there 2 sets of awards/results? One for just hs/ss and one for hs/ss/set? Just curious what to expect. -- idmom, Wed, May 31, 02:17:09pm

  • Age group rules? -- Senior lady, Sat, May 20, 09:34:14am
    Has there been any talk in the region about changing age group rules? I'm an American senior lady in prelims that has often come to Ontario for feising and the numbers recently rarely get up to 5 in the 18&O prelims. ECR rules won't allow PC99 to combine with PC18 if there are less than 5 dancers in PC99. I enjoy feising in Ontario, but may be choosing to go to bigger American feises over Canadian ones this year due to this problem.

    As the good weather is coming in now, and thoughts turn to re-decorating, re-furnishing and re-accessorizing the home, please keep us in mind. We( My son Aidan and I) at Brant County Deals can source anything that you need at the lowest prices that you will find anywhere. Have a look at our FB page, Brant County Deals for some sample furniture etc. We also invite you to check out Titus, R&T, IFDC and Springwater Furniture websites to see what is available.
    We are lower that liquidation prices for scratch and dent furniture, our stuff is brand new.

    Thinking of coming from out of region for this feis and wondering how it's generally run. Are champs oldest to youngest or youngest to oldest? If I stay in Montreal, would it be reasonable to get a cab or public transportation to the feis from there or should I plan to stay in the host hotel?

    Any advice appreciated! I've never been to Montreal and hoping for a chance to turn a feis into a fun weekend trip! :)

  • Very Important - Please Read!! -- ID Dad (Perplexed), Tue, March 07, 11:44:53am
    I just wanted to reach out and say a HUGE THANK YOU to McGinley Academy and their volunteers (Dancers and Parents) for a fantastic Feis this past weekend with the Grace O’Malley Feis. Amazing work by all involved to put on such a big event – over 2 days also!!

    A BIG Thank You is also due for the presentation for all the individual reel competitions. I know this was a lengthy process in the middle of the day and it may have caused some competitions to run behind. However, based on the looks on each competitor’s face to hear their name called, to be able to step up onto the BIG podium and receive their award or accolade, made the day so special for so many competitors (Big to Small) that may never have a chance to hear their names in the live results in PC or Champ.

    I also wanted to mention how upset I was to hear grumblings and complaining about running late – hiccups and delays with results – the usual “I’ll NEVER do this Feis again” – the standard thankless whining & complaining about everything that we’ve all heard too much of over the years. If this is really the case, do us all a favour and stop Feising!!

    These events are put together for the kids by the various schools and the parents/dancers are ALL VOLUNTEERS working their butts off to make these events successful. Unless you have been involved in one of these, you have no idea the massive amount of work involved with making these events work. I was there both days and the same volunteers were running the same areas for TWO FULL DAYS and I ‘m sure that most of them didn’t even have a chance to see their own children competing. Remember, these VOLUNTEERS are there before you get there and long after you leave!!

    What message are we giving our kids by acting in this way – a Feis is FOR THE KIDS!! I have 2 children actively involved in this sport so I was there both days for most of the day. Instead of complaining all the time, pick up a broom, offer to help, pick up some garbage - speak with a volunteer – see if they need any help (even a simple thank you makes all the difference sometimes)

    The ECR and the Irish Dance community is a very small and close knit group. In the end, we are all in this together, for our Children’s success, confidence, accomplishments and the great social aspect of it all. You can’t put a price, time or money, on watching your kids achieve and succeed. It’s not school against school or dancer against dancer – its dancers, themselves, trying to better their last competition or apply what they’ve worked so hard on. If you see a volunteer or another parent struggling with something, even as simple as a mad dash shoe change – take a moment to see if you can help – your actions will make a difference!! Let’s get rid of the negativity and bring back the positivity!!

    Thanks so much !!
    ID Dad.

When I go through to the HILTON reservation I was informed that the Irish Dance Block had in fact opened in DEC 2016 and was already sold out..SOLD OUT in december. Im so sick of the bull with trying to get rooms . Totally unfair to all of us whom play by the rules. PISSED

  • We are from the Southern Region and attended Feile Nollaig this past weekend. It was my children's first trip to Canada. We had such a wonderful time. Everyone was so helpful and kind. My daughter had never danced in a treble reel competition, and another dancer at the entry table graciously taught her the end step. My daughter says it was her favorite feis ever. We can't wait until next year. Thanks for the hospitality. -- JM, Thu, December 15, 03:02:34pm

  • Bus Trip to North Coast Feis -- Ohio Bound!, Mon, December 12, 04:25:57pm
    OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!!!!!

    GC BUS TRIP TO NORTH COAST FEIS - February 3/4

    GC sold out one bus for North Coast Feis and booked a second one. We have some seats on it and want to open it to other schools so we can get a good ECR contingent heading there. We are so limited in the number of Feises for our dancers through the winter, and this one is a really good, well run event.

    We have it set up on a website called TILT. People book seats and ONLY once the bus is full, are they charged.

    Here is all the info on it. GTA dance families that are thinking about the feis but dont want to risk the weather (weve had bad weather 5 out of 7 trips and not a problem when you are on the bus), they are more than welcome to come on the bus with us.

    Bus Website.....

    http://tilt.tc/8UR7?s=wb&u=rsimms92

    Reservations for the Friday Night should be made at the Sheraton Cleveland Airport under the North Coast Feis group.

    http://www.sheratonclevelandairport.com/

    Entries for the Feis are open and Grade Exams are closed.

    http://www.northcoastfeis.com/

    Schedule -

    Friday February 3 - 7:00 am Leave from GC studio,
    1040 South Service Road East (just east of Trafalgar facing the QEW) at 7:00 am on Friday February 3rd. Cars can be parked overnight at the back of the parking lot.

    We stop for border check, then at Angola Road Side Stop for refreshements, and finally at South Park Mall for some shopping.

    We do two trips from the mall to the hotel at scheduled times.

    Saturday February 4 - The hotel provides shuttles all day to and from the feis, and we have usually two runs to by the buses. We head back to Ontario following the Parade of Champs, usually around 7:30 pm, with a stop at another mall for food and beverages for the ride home.

  • Cookie Basket Raffle for a Former ECR Dancer Who is Battling Cancer -- Caitlyn, Fri, November 18, 01:49:55pm
    Hi All,

    I know how the Irish Dancing community pulls together in great times and in hard times. A young lady who used to dance for the Graham School was recently diagnosed with brain cancer and has been undergoing radiation. She has been through a lot since the diagnosis. She and her newly wed husband have put their lives on hold to deal with her battle with cancer. With all that has been going on their financial earnings have been put on the back burner. I am doing a raffle for a basket of Christmas themed sugar cookies($100+ value) to help raise money to assist them during this difficult time.

    Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $25. The draw will take place December 19th, 2016, just in time for the Christmas season. All the money raised will go to Lauren and her husband Eddy. Whoever is interested in participating please let me know!
    Online donations for tickets are available as well.

    For a little insight as to what Lauren has been going through this is the blog she has kept along the way:

    Not everyone may agree with me, but I wanted to point out that I'm proud we come from a region with such healthy competition. So many new champions this year different from last year, if you compare this years parade of champs to last year they are drastically different! I think its great that we come from a region where different people have the chance to make it to the top. We might be a small region, but we certainly are a strong one! Well done to everyone.
