It's taken 4 years to the feis, but today I won my single jig and moved my last dance out of novice. In the meantime, I've had 2 pregnancies, 2 C-sections, and learned to dance with children (I can't go to 6 1/2 hours of class in one day any longer, you know?)

Now it's on to placing out or winning 6 dances in Prizewinner, to get to my next goal: Championships

I've placed 2nd in my reel and double jig
3rd in my hornpipe
5th in my slip jig
4th in my trad set
and I've won my light jig.

Yay! Congratulations!

You are now my hero! That is a real accomplishment!

I only have TJ and Reel in PW. (I only do 4 dances). I've had 4-2nds in nov SJ and 9 ( yes that is nine) 2nds in nov HP. My tombstone will read "Death by novice SJ"

Looks like you are already doing well in PW. :)

with all of your nice placements, you should come feis in the western region. Here, if you have 10 or more dancers in a novice competition, than both first and second place move up. It's nice for when we have 12-15 competitors in novice.

I actually won my novice slip jig full year before I moved it up to prizewinner- but there were only 3 dancers that day.

Keep at it- you are so close to moving those dances up!

Way to go PogMoGillies and Hop_123! I finally moved a dance into Prizewinner last November (slipjig) and then yesterday moved up treble jig. Am thrilled to death and am now allowed to wear a solo dress. Ever since I started wearing a school dress with a wig, I have gotten one 1st per feis (trad set, then slipjig, then treble jig). Of course it probably has more to do with hard work than the dress but who knows? Luck seems to be associated with the school dress so I may keep on wearing it for a while.

How wonderful! I am excited for all of you! Okay, let's be honest. I cried and was a mess when I found out that MissSlipJig had won her treble jig competition. Here is a new year, with each of you reaching your next level goals!
