The Gaelic Word "Feis" (pronounced fesh) means Festival.
Feiseanna (fesh-en-ah) is the plural of feis.
A Traditional Feis would include performances and competitions in many areas, from Music and Dance to the Irish Language and Irish Bread. The Fleadh Ceol, held annually in Ireland is remniscent of the Old Irish Festivals.
These sites will direct you to the host school or organization. Please print syllabi directly from these sites and submit. Copies are also available at the studio.
Watch for closing dates, caps and late fees when completing the form.
Also, watch the feis age....the age the dancer is on January 1st of a given year. Most competitions go by the "Under" age, so a child born in 2004 has a feis age of 9 and competes with the U-10s. (in 2014)
In some cases, ages will be combined. If your age group is not listed on the syllabus, go the first age group above yours that is listed.
If you have any question about the level or particular dance you child should be entered in, please contact Clare before submitting the form as most feiseanna charge a fee to make a change or won't allow you to do it at all.
Feis411 is also a great resource for feis forms, notifications and results. Also check efeis, feisweb, Facebook, and Twitter for up coming feis listings
All Dances, solo or team, need to be approved by Clare before the feis.
You are representing our school and we want you to be well prepared and to put your best foot forward.
