What is a feis?

A feis is a gathering, a competition,  where our dancers hone their performance skills and is an opportunity to test themselves against other dancers and schools. Some days dancers will do better than other and this can be due to any number of reasons – from an off day to a judge preferring a different style. We would ask all parents to please look at the big picture and if you have a disappointing day then please chalk it down to experience and encourage your child to enjoy the experience regardless of the result. All parents take their child to dance classes to learn to dance not to be a champion, so please do not forget this. There will be plenty of happy memories and lots of friendships forged for both you and your child.

How do we register for feiseanna?

Most of our western region feiseanna use one of these two sites. You register your dancer under our school, “Scoil Rince Ni Riada,” and enter them in their age group in the appropriate level. Please speak to the school before registering a certain level as we’ll recommend which level to start your dancer out in.
