How do I put up a wig to the side like this? Please help!
This feis was not one of my better feis'. I didn't place in my reel which I was so confident that I would place because I danced so well. I didn't place in my slip jig since I messed up so much. I got 4th in my treble jig! I messed up alot but I still placed plus I learned it last week! I won my hornpipe and single jig! I got 2nd in light jig. And 4th in traditional set with 40 people!

I have to admit, I have a problem with timing in my dances. In class I have pretty good timing because of doing the same music over and over, but when it comes feis time, with new music, the judges always say "better timing", "off timing", etc. I'm typically too fast for the music but occasionally on the reel, I tend to be slower. Do you guys have any tips on how to get timing better or even perfect?
At every feis I struggle with putting my full irish dance wig on. I have a question (If someone would help me!) How can you put your wig on if you are…Continue
For feis makeup I normally go in the tan/gold colors. I use a gold, sparkly eye shadow, foundation/cover up, pale pink blush, goldish bronzer, and light-pink lipgloss. Even though I am an Adv. Beg., I have seen before where more of the championship dancers go all out with make up and it can sometimes look overwhelming on them.
What do you guys think and what make up do you tend to wear?
This is similar to what I wear but more gold eyes and less white:…Continue

Okay so normally I do not eat anything or maybe just a granola bar before a feis because it causes cramps and Oww! What I am wondering is if this is healthy or not? I do eat afterward of course but is it critical to eat before too?
****Please comment what you do too!
So currently I am a Adv. Beg/Novice in my dances but at my next feis I hope to fully move up to novice. What I am wondering is when you start to get solo dresses? It may different from school to school but i don't know. I think it's prizewinner but do you have to be full PW or can you still be Nov. in a few?…Continue

I am going crazy about the new show on TLC called 'The Big Jig'. I am obsessive over Oireachtas pictures!…Continue

I was in Novice before the summer and I qualified for prizewinner in every dance. My teacher said that if I have won the dance once I would move up by the end of the year. She also said that if I won in that dance more that 2 times in a row I would move up to prizewinner immediately. I have won all my dances…Continue
So for my next feis I'm entering in the art category so I was going to paint a picture. I really want to do it of the photo below but am not sure if it qualifies as being "Irish Art" since it only has the flag. The reason I really want to do this one is because I love riding horses and Ireland so I thought this combined them perfectly. It may be a little hard to tell but it's one of the riders that rode for Ireland in the Olympics with a Irish flag on the saddle pad, then the Olympic rings…Continue
