  • Greater Niagara Feis (formerly St. Catharines Feis) -- Co Chair (Cindy), Mon, March 07, 11:14:02am
    We just wanted to let everyone know that the Greater Niagara Feis (formerly St. Catharines Feis) will still be running on the 4th Saturday of July this year. Some of you may remember that we were considering a date change.

    The feis isn't open yet, but we thought it would be good to confirm this well ahead of time from the standpoint of travel, etc.

    Summer is a great time to visit the Niagara area as part of your plans if you want to make it an extended stay. Lots of attractions for the kids (Marineland, SkyWheel, Waterparks, Clifton Hill attractions) and for the grown ups it is a lovely time to visit the local wineries and the quaint villages of Niagara on the Lake and Jordan.

    We will post more details as soon as we have our new website up and have our syllabus approved.

  • Suggestion for feises.... Perhaps using feisweb as a registration tool might reult in more entries. I do not know what the costs are but the extra entries might offset those costs. Feisweb is viewed by a lot of people and would offer some "free" advertising. -- oakville feis #s were high when they used it, Sun, April 10, 12:45:06pm

    Registration without a late fee will continue through April 9, 2016. From April 10-15, you can still register with a $20.00 late fee. We have a large number of unconfirmed (unpaid) registrations. For savings, we recommend that you confirm your registration as soon as possible. We cap at 800.

    Still having trouble deciding?

    Once again, we will be at the spacious Dayton Airport Expo Center, 3900 McCauley Drive, Vandalia, OH 45377. Parking is included with your $10.00 family fee!

    The Dayton Area Feis is one of the last opportunities for Preliminary Champs to qualify for Open Championship before the 5/1 deadline to register for the North American Nationals. We are still back-to-back with the Buckeye State Feis for a double chance to qualify!

    There will be a podium and sashes for 1st-3rd place for Preliminary and Open Championship with beautiful crystal awards for the top 50%!

    Fun prizes for the winners in each Treble Reel competition!

    Results will be available in near real-time via the Quickfeis website!

    New this year: There will be a day-of-feis coloring activity/contest for the younger dancers with fun prizes for the winners!

    What's not to like? Register today if you haven't already!

  • To the organizing committee and volunteers at the 2016 Toronto City Championship Feis, keep your chin up. Regardless of anything said, factual or otherwise, you did a great job and your efforts are sincerely appreciated. Good news for you is, you're done. Now it's someone else's turn to get blasted whether it's deserved or not. -- Irish dance is so much fun., Tue, March 08, 01:52:13pm

    how does one deal with a mother whom is always interfering becuase her daughter "cries" all the time to get her way?? Dance classes have been changed(once again) to accoommodate her daughter ..Always criying to the teacher ..desperate for attention and mother is right in there complaining to teacher...everyone at the studio is aware of it and sick of it....dancer doesnt feel the need to earn her right because crying get what she wants..& totally sucks up to teacher(mother and daughter)..

  • LIMELIGHT - Enhancing Mobile Photography -- Kincaid Stringer, Mon, February 29, 07:13:50pm
    Hello!

    While touring all of China last year with Riverdance my friends and I devised a better way to take pictures with a mobile phone. It's been a year in the making but the project really has finally come to life and we're now looking to the Irish dancing community for your support! I have just launched a Kickstarter to fund the mass production of LimeLight in order to get the cost of production down and offer it at an affordable price. In a world that is dominated by social media I think this is truly a great product that millions of people could use.

    I would be ever so grateful if everyone would take the time to have a look and see what you think. There are some great rewards offered as well in conjunction with Shannon Kincaid who is a Fine Artist that has agreed to help support me in this venture. Even if the actual gadget doesn't interest you there are several examples of Shannon's 'Art of Irish Dancing' that might.

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2067457852/limelight-enhancing-mobile-photography

    Cheers,

    Kincaid

    I'm in the US but we do have a Canadian bank account I could use. The efeis website isn't very helpful and I've emailed both the feis and efeis asking for clarification and they haven't responded. It says Interact eTransfer, what is this? I have never seen this option before when paying for a feis.

  • Having second thoughts about driving to Chatham? Would you rather sit back on a coach bus and let someone else drive in the snow? The Gil-Can bus is leaving the east end at 3:30pm with stops in Etobicoke and Burlington and returning Saturday after the feis. Cost is $45 per person and there are limited seats available.
