For our participants' safety

Please review the MA travel and pandemic rules. MA is opening up more, so hopefully dancers will be able to bring ONE adult in to the feis with them. (If they cannot, teachers can be at the feis the entire day to be with their dancers.) MA's allowances for traveling in or out of state for less than 24 hours are very strict and do NOT include travel for a feis. You must follow MA's testing and/or quarantine rules to attend this event.

Registration will be open in March. A dancer is not registered until they have paid. There are no refunds, transfers or credits for the event.
