Call to the Post: Stage Assignments Now Available

Louisville Feis Stage Assignments are now available.

Please remember that we have arranged the stages so that your child will dance on the same stage all day with a few exceptions – please check the stage assignments.  Stages are assigned by age groups and competition levels.  Judges will be rotated so dancers will compete for different adjudicators.  Please note that there are very few figure dances with competitors and we expect solo competitions to begin very quickly.

Down the Home Stretch: Feis Week Info

Please read our Feis Welcome Letter with lots of great information as we count down to the last week of the Feis. Here’s some key topics covered in the letter (but please read the full letter for all the info):

Registration

Pre-registration will take place on Friday night from 6:30-8:30pm on the 1st floor of the Four Points by Sheraton. There is no access to the feis venue on Friday night as the feis committee will be setting up stages, etc. There are no practice rooms. Registration will open at 7:30 am on Saturday at the KY Expo Center in South Wing A.
