There is no problem if anyone doesn't want to compete and simply wants to dance for fun, but we do encourage all our dancer to compete in so called Feisanna which are held in cities across Europe throughout the year.
We especially encourage our dancers to take part in our own Hamburg Feis which takes place in February each year and as soon you have learned your Beginners Reel you are eligible to compete.
We can guarantee that once you have competed at your first Feis you donít want to stop, because itís FUN!
All Beginner & Primary dancers who wish to compete must have a full class costume and in case of girls/ladies also her own wig
Please speak to us to find out how to order these things.
