PACIFIC NORTHWEST IRISH DANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS FEIS - 2014

Good news! We are back at the Hilton Seattle Airport again in 2014, enjoying the finest feis venue in the Pacific Northwest. Top quality rooms, helpful staff, complimentary airport shuttle, and walking access to the light rail to downtown. For dining, Spencer's has fine dining and a bar menu with more economic offerings (available in the dining room). Date will be March 8-9, 2014, a good warmup for Irish Week and St. Patrick's Day. Rooms at the feis rate of $122 (and no resort fee) can be booked until February 14 at the Hilton.

We expect to entertain 400-500 dancers and their families from Western Canada and the Western US. Competitions will range from the newest beginners to the top champions, including adults. And, we expect to see quite a few dancers who have qualified for the World Championships in London in late April. There will be many special competitions as well, for dancers of all levels. One of the crowd favorites is the St. Patrick's dress-up special, where dancers do their own "choreography", in attire of their choosing. And we'll have soda bread and art competitions for dancers and family members.
