Big Apple Feis, 3/29/14-3/30/14

Anyone going to the Big Apple Feis? Adults are on 3/30/14 and there are many levels, a beginner, a advanced beginner, novice, prizewinner and champion; and they have reel, slip jig, light jig, treble reel, treble jig, hornpipe. They have a 2 hand, 4 hand and 8 hand competition. They also have a reasonably priced hotel either nearby or at the facility itself. Sorry can't remember.


I have a question into them about their definition of adult dancer but, if it is what I'm expecting, than I am definitely going to enter. It should be fun.

I'm going! We're entering a 4-hand team and I'm doing some solos too.
Spread the word & let's make this a big adult feis!

I'll be there, too!
Once upon a time there were a good number of adults; not sure why lately there haven't been (I was the ONLY one last year …)
I'll be doing the "champ" style and slow jig.

Let's get more adults to take advantage of this great feis!

I haven't entered yet because I am waiting for an answer from my TC. Did you see how they define an adult dancer? They say an adult competitor is someone who hasn't dance before the age of 18. So I am just checking to see what my TC recommends before I register.

Irishstep, what school do you dance for? Any other adults in your classes you can recruit to join the feis fun?

Sorry Kirvin is not going to make it. I looked at who has registered already and I think it is only two. Im still waiting on an answer to my question but as soon as I get it I will enter. This sounds like a great feis, all sorts of competitions, drawing, costume design, etc......

Today is the last day to enter I believe and you will be charged a late fee. One hundred and three dollars, phew, that is a little steep.

The big apple Feis was great. It was really nice to meet some of the other adult dancers. I thought it was a great competition and a great adult turn out. Can't wait to get my scores.

It's in DC in July. It's another one that typically gets a great adult turnout. I'll be there!

Hi Meredith. Thanks for sending this to me, I enjoyed reading it. Congratulations on coming in third in the adult championships. That's wonderful. Who placed first and second?? It was a great adult competition. Told ya your set dance was really good. I got third in my traditional set. I was lucky to get that. I messed it up a bit and the judge knew it ;). Are you gonna do the nations capital Feis? I'm thinking about it but not sure yet.
Thanks again practice practice. 🍀😊
Nancy.
