Irish Dancing Charity Feis

Today Maebh (age 6.5) took part in a charity Irish Dancing Feis here in Dublin. Her teacher told her about it and thought it might be good experience to get up in front of a large room full of people and dance.

In May the school did small one but this one had 650 dancers over the two days!

Due to child protection, photos and videos were not allowed during the show – only at the end when they get their awards. I did manage to get these two photos.

And the awards ceremony was a bit chaotic and confusing but only that we are new with it all.  One girl took home four trophies – so it’s clear after a lot of practicing, she can too, if she wants.  So far she loves her dancing and is hoping for a dress and wig!

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
