    • See Feisworxs and Quickfeis for additional competitions that you may be interested in attending. 

  • Not sure what age group your child should be in?

    • The age group of your dancer is based on the age of the dancer as of January 1st of that calendar year.

      • Example: If your dancer is age 10 on January 1, 2023, that dancer will be in the U11 (under 11) age group for the entire 2023 calendar year, regardless of when they turn 11.

  • Not sure what competition group/dance your child should be in?

    • We suggest registering to the best of your knowledge, and then provide a printed, or emailed, copy of the registration to either Corey or Paige before you pay.

    • Some competitions do not allow cancellations or refunds. So, please confirm registration with Corey or Paige prior to paying for registration, if you have any questions or concerns.

      • All feis registrations will need to be paid prior to the registration deadline to ensure your participation.
