Once your child is ready for a feis
New DANCERS, download our handbook that explains all about what happens at a Feis.
Once you child is ready for a feis you will be informed of all the necessary information to be able to enter a feis and know what to expect. As dancers progress, there is an opportunity to dance with others in group or what is known as “figure” team dancing. This teaches children cooperation and teamwork through dancing with other dancers. It is another part of the dance world as you can be and accomplish solo performer and also be a team player . As the school is registered with the Irish dancing commission all dancers in the school are then able to participate in feises. But The school also welcomes dancers who may not want to do a dance competition as there is a yearly recital where they can show off their talent for family and friends.
