PRIOR TO REGISTRATION, BE AWARE:

Print and bring your dancer number card. Dancer cards will NOT be available on site.

A stage schedule will be posted prior to the feis with arrival times. Please be prepared to abide by these times. There will not be any camping space available on site for dancers and it will be very important to abide by the posted times.

Competitors will only be allowed to enter the venue when it is time for their competition and will be expected to leave the venue at the completion of their competition(s). Dancers missing their competition(s) will not be allowed to redance. It will be very important for us to remain on schedule to keep the days flowing properly.

ONLY ONE SUPPORT PERSON PER DANCER will be allowed IN the building with the dancer during their assigned dance time. This will be monitored at the door and NO exceptions will be allowed. NO ADDITIONAL ATTENDEES WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER THE BUILDING (this rule also applies to additional children or dancers from the family). If you have multiple dancers, we must request that you please make arrangements for them while they are not dancing if need be as we cannot allow additional people in the building in order to abide by state mandated occupancy regulations at this time.

Results will be posted on our social media. We are working on the best plan for distribution of awards and more details on this will be posted at a later date.

 

Masks that cover the nose and mouth are REQUIRED by all attendees AT ALL TIMES. Dancers MUST WEAR THEIR MASKS WHILE DANCING in accord with Pennsylvania state mandate. If a dancer or support person is not able to wear a mask, we respectfully ask that you not attend the event and would love to welcome you to an event in the future.

If you reside outside the state of Pennsylvania, your dancer(s) and any/all family member's traveling with you are required to have a negative COVID test result no earlier than 72 hours before the date of the Rose & Shamrock Feis. You can be asked to produce the results of this negative test at any time during your visit to the state as per Pennsylvania state regulations. If you do not feel you can abide by this regulation, please do not register for the feis.

All attendees (dancers and support persons) will need to sign a COVID waiver to attend which will be provided at a later date. This waiver will include an attestation for those arriving from a state that does not appear on the PA travel ban list that they are adhering to the 72 hour COVID testing mandate and information on the PA mask mandate.
