Not even a full week left before the Nordic Feis 2015 kicks of in Turku. Hurrah!

Please find Timetable for the Nordic Feis 2015 here. The timetable might still be subject to some minor changes, but we will try to stick to it as far as possible.

Filming of a documentary at the Nordic Feis
With approval from An Coimisiún, NSID and the Feis Committee has agreed to the filming of a documentary at the Nordic Feis, led by Essi Lahtinen-Carranza from Style Dance Industry. The documentary aims to bring attention to Irish dancing, in all it variations, throughout the Northern countries.

The crew will do most of the filming on Saturday. It will be done discretely by hand held devices by to 1 or 2 persons. You probably won’t even notice them, as they have promised to be as “invisible” as possible. The crew will respect everyone’s privacy and need to concentrate for their performances.

Upon the registration we will ask each and every one for their consent to participate. You might be asked if you are willing to be interviewed, and you’re approval will be obtained as to whether you are comfortable and willing to be visible on film. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please do not hesitate to the Committee.

Time flies, and The Nordic Feis 2015 in Turku is drawing closer.

For those of you who are planning to do Grade Exams at the Feis, make sure to let your teacher(s) know, so they can inform the Committee!

If you are one of the brave and hard working people, doing grade 11 or 12, please send an email to:
asewaglen(a)yahoo.no, as soon as possible. This is of high importance, as these exams have to be reported to An Coimisiún, so the right adjudicator is sent to the Feis, etc.

Happy dancing and Feis preparations, everybody!
