Shelagh Feile Fiesta
Shelagh Feile Fiesta is the bi-annual Irish dance competition hosted by the McGovern Ceili Daners. The competition is run under the rules of Cuman Rince Naisunta and is an Open Platform event, which means Irish dancers from ALL organizations are welcome to participate in this competition.
This year the event will be held at Advance Business Properties located at 1675 Woodman Dr Dayton OH 45432. Doors open at 9:30am and the competition begins at 10am.
Our event is open to the public and is $5 general admission. This is a great way to witness the athleticism and grace of Irish dance up close. We will have approximately 150 competitors from the United States and Canada participating in the event ranging from beginners to champion level dancers. While our competition is on the small side it is always a lot of fun. We even got a write up in Irish Dance Magazine for our 2016 event with our Super Hero Theme.
This year we will be having a Fiesta theme, because Irish dance competitions are a celebration of all the great things that Irish dance can bring into your life – accomplishments, goals, physical activity, mental stimulation, creative outlets, laughter and life long friendships! We look forward to seeing all of our Irish dance friends on Saturday and hope to welcome new friends as well!
