KSID dancers love to compete at a Feis.
A Feis is an Irish Dancing competition where all dancers get a chance to perform and compete against other dancers at their level and age. These events are officially registered by the Commission of Irish Dancing in Dublin and these events are run in accordance with its rules and regulations.
The Kilkenny Feis 2017 will be held on September 23rd and 24th the syllabus can be found here.
Here in the Netherlands we usually have 2-3 such events each year and once dancers have mastered the basics they are HIGHLY encouraged to participate. Dancers improve dramatically through competition. It is a big challenge for a beginner but most dancers grow to love and enjoy competition and the fun of participating.
Throughout Europe many feisennas are held details can be found via the website of the RCCEA-RTME
