A feis, or festival, celebrates Irish music, dance, and culture. In addition to dance, a feis may have competitions in performance of Irish music, spoken Irish language, art, and even soda bread baking!

Your dancer competes in an age category depending on his/her age in January of that year (ex. dancer who is age 9 in January and who turns age 10 the following May competes in the Under 10 category for the full year). Once you enter your dancer's information, the site will automatically give you the choices for which your dancer is eligible when you go to enter a feis.
