Bucharest Feis 2019 Press Release

  Saturday, November 2nd 2019, we invite you to enter the world of Irish dance, a style highly appreciated by everyone, but rarely experienced upclose by the audience in Romania. Bucharest will host the fourth edition of the only international Irish dance competition in Romania and the South-East of Europe, organised by STEYsha School of Irish Dance.

  The competition will be held on Saturday, November 2nd 2019 between 08:00 – 19:00, in the big sports hall of Liceul Sportiv „Mircea Eliade”, on Splaiul Independentei nr. 315-317. Visitors are welcome anytime during the day, as entry to the venue is free.

  There will be 112 competitors from 17 countries: Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia. The competition will be judged by two adjudicators certified by the Irish Dance Commission in Dublin – CLRG: Francis Curley (Ireland) and Debbie Trainor (U.K.), and the music will be played live by the Irish Dance competition specialised musician, Zohra Coday (U.S.A./Ireland).

  The competition will be living proof of the variety of Irish Dance: the competitors are split into difficulty levels (from beginners through championship) and age groups (from 4 years old to 57 years old). They will show off their skills in numerous classic Irish dance competition sections, as well as in a few special ones: Transylvania Land-themed competition, where costumed dancers will interpret through dance their favourite Romanian folklore characters; Blind Hornpipe, where the judges will be facing away from the dancers and will score them solely on the musicality of their steps and Family Ceili, where dancing and non-dancing members of the same family can show off their skills together.

  For many of the dancers, Bucharest Feis will be an extra training before the European Championship for their qualifications to the World Irish Dancing Championship 2020. Event entry is free of charge for visitors, the venue holding over 70 seats in the audience and those who will wish to take advantage of the opportunity to register for an Irish Dance class will be able to do it while there.

  Bucharest Feis has the honour of the Irish Embassy in Romania’s support, as well as that of the Irish community in Bucharest.
