This board is for people to toot their own horn. Brag about your accomplishments and achievements as a dancer, student, etc. The congrats board lets other people speak highly of you, but here, you can take matters into your own hands. Have fun!

My daughter only has 4 feises under her belt and is already all prizewinner. She took firsts at her last feis in Prizewinner and her goal is to take her second round of firsts again at Dance for Life in Seattle next month. She is hoping to be Prelim by fall. I have to say that she's an extremly driven kid, and i'm so proud of how hard she works. When other parents compliment me my common response is "hey i just write the checks and drive her to practice"
So to all you girls out there, you can do anything you set your mind to, all it takes is a lot of hard work!

I have been to 2 feises so far, one in Smithville NJ and one in Delaware. NAIDF.

i've had a blast at the places, Smithville got rained out and we had to move to an indoor place! I/We ended up winning freestyle 16U group, solo (all 3 dances, beginner), leveled up, and got best overall! :D

in delaware, i/we tied 16U freestyle group, won sweets of may, and won all 4 solo dances and leveled up AND got high honors.

next feis is July 17th, in PA! is anyone going to that feis? were dancing in 4 hand, 6 hand, 8 hand, solos (im in novice), freestyle group (Black and White!) and dance drama. I am so excited!

I'm not going to brag, but I've made it into Novice after 2 years of competing and countless feisanna! Now, at the next feis, I'll be in Novice in all dances but Slip Jig. I can't wait!

I'm also going to brag for my friend, since she isn't on here. My best friend has been dancing for about 4 years and just danced at her first feis in Novice and placed in every single one of her dances! (She even got a 1st) Also, she was the only one without a solo dress, she had a jumper. I think it's really amazing and I'm so proud of her! She's looking at solo dresses now!

I danced as a child in open then took an extensive break. I'm currently dancing intermediate. With hard work and dedication I could make it into open but I am somewhat lazy and work shifts. I kinda like sitting in the middle at the moment although I did win my hop jig into open.

Got a feis this weekend. 6 in my age group. Things look promising

I recently became all prizewinner. At the last two feisenna, I got two firsts at each one. At my latest feis, I was really nervous because there were 18 dancers in each competition, but I pulled two firsts in reel and slip jig! I'm hoping to get all 8 of my firsts and get into prelims by the next four feiseanna I go to. I only have four, so there's still a ways to go!

I'm also really ecstatic right now because I just mastered back rallies (or trebles, shuffles)!
