SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA HALLOWEEN FEIS - 2012
Announcing a brand new feis in Southern California!!! The Power Academy and Comerford School of Irish Dance are hosting a Halloween Feis on Saturday, October 27, and Sunday, October 28, in Long Beach. The venue is the wonderful Long Beach Westin.
The Feis will have a Halloween theme, with a costume dress-up special, a dancing special for siblings who have not yet started feisin', and a future champs special for dancers preparing for their first Oireachtas.
The schedule: On Saturday, all preliminary championships (dancing 3 rounds), open championships up to and including U13, all grades up to and including U13, first fees for all ages, all adult competitions, and the Halloween Dress Up specials.
On Sunday, all teams, all grades 13&O, the Future Champions Special, and a second set of Preliminary Championships (2 rounds).
By way of clarification, the preliminary championship competitions on Saturday will follow the typical pattern, with three rounds. On Sunday, there will be a second set of preliminary competitions, with a different panel of adjudicators. There will be only two rounds of dances, with no set dance round. The purpose of this second set of competitions is to provide dancers another chance to compete before the Oireachtas, and another chance to place.
For details on competitions, please see the syllabus, which soon will be posted at FeisWorx.
Rooms at the feis rate of $124 may be booked at the Long Beach Westin. Or call the Westin at 562-436-3000.
