Grand Canyon Feis!

The next feis is June 25-26, 2016 at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak in Flagstaff, Arizona! This is a great feis in a beautiful location. All of our dancers will be competing on Sunday. Entries are due to me by Friday, June 10. The next feis after that is August 13-14 in Palm Springs. More information will go out about that shortly.

We had a great week of classes this week! I am looking forward to the next feis and the upcoming summer season. We will start making the push for more dancers to start competing, as well as thinking ahead to the Oireachtas for some! Stay tuned for more exciting news.

Memorial Day Weekend Updates

We had a great week of classes this past week! From learning new steps for the upcoming Feis at the Faire to practicing for our recital coming up this summer (August 17! Mark your calendars!), we have made excellent strides in our progress as Irish dancers. I am seeing quite a bit of progress after releasing our weekly home practice schedule two weeks ago. Keep up the great work!

A few announcements, which were also sent via email this week:

  1. There is no Santa Clarita class this Monday, 5/31 due to studio closures for Memorial Day. Dancers are welcome to come to the Simi Valley class at 4 PM at St. Rose of Lima Catholic School on Wednesday.
  2. For those competing, Irish Faire feis entry fees are due to me by this Wednesday, June 1. The Feis at the Fair takes place Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19. This is a great outdoor event, not just a feis. There is music, dancing, sheepherding demonstrations, rides, and plenty of shopping. Saturday will be all dancers U12 and under, and Sunday will be all dancers 12&O. ickets are required for all adults entering the fair. Buy tickets in advance here. The Irish Fair will take place at El Dorado Park in Long Beach. The official hotel for this event is the Long Beach Marriott, so if you are looking to stay the whole weekend and enjoy both days, call and get in with the block! 562-425-5210
  3. Our summer recital is rescheduled for Wednesday, August 17 at 4 PM in the St. Rose of Lima Hall. Mark your calendars now!

Have a great holiday weekend, and see you all on Wednesday only this week!

Relay for Life Santa Clarita

Today the girls danced at the Relay for Life in Santa Clarita. For those who are unaware, the Relay is an event to help raise money to fight against cancer. This event has been an important event in my family’s life for years. We have all been known someone who has been affected by cancer. I wanted to share this event with the girls.

We were fortunate to have temperate weather for our show at 11 AM on the Infield Stage. We had a nice crowd who were rather gracious and clapped along to the  music. Irish music is truly infectious and always gathers a crowd. The girls had a great time!

Feis at the Fair 2016 – June 18 and 19, 2016

What better way to celebrate Dad than by having him see his beloved dancer take the stage, enjoy a cold Guiness, and listen to some fun Irish bands?
