    "A three round result will be presented to the Prelim Comps in addition to the regular competition result - regular comp and set comp combined"
    (On the "about" tab on the website, and on the Syllabus)

    May not have affected my dancers results, but she was expecting set to be included in the overall. It's really about setting expectations.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.
