Eastern Canada is fortunate to have a variety of feiseanna offered across our mighty region, but many of which operate on a tight budget, thus they rely on your support to continue.
We are extremely fortunate to have volunteers from dancing schools and not-for-profit associations who put on these opportunities year after year to keep competitive Irish dance thriving in Eastern Canada, and as such, we ask that you consider supporting them by attending, volunteering, thanking/praising them when things go well and remaining positive if things do not.
Please remember that dance is a subjective art form so the results are not always going to go the way you might think, and please think twice before posting anonymous messages to online message boards complaining about feiseanna. Instead, consider speaking with and/or sending constructive feedback directly to the organizers for the following year’s planning. Naming children (or implying their identity) whom you think do not deserve placements on a public message board is abusive behaviour and is not acceptable.
If you feel a feis is in breach of a rule then please speak with your teacher and/or contact the feis organizer with a formal complaint (ideally while you are there) so the organizers have a chance to do something about it.
Good luck to everyone and thank you to parents, dancers, teachers, judges, musicians, sponsors, vendors and feis organizers for all that you do!
