A feis (pronounced FESH) is a dancing competition, these take place locally, nationally and Internationally - lynnette will discuss entering a feis on an individual basis.
Feis's are exciting, they are hard work and it is not guaranteed that a dancer will place/qualify nor is not a certainly that every dancer will receive a medal or trophy, Irish dancing is a popular sport with a high level of entrants. Its as much about taking part as it is winning, every dancer will have their chance to shine but only with hard work, determination and skill.
Lynnette usually decides when a child is ready to participate in feis's, attending is not compulsory and some dancers never attend.
