Due to the limited number of dancers attending regionals this year, no discounts were able to be passed onto the families at this time. This year girls will be outfitted in our traditional ceili school dresses. These will be handed out in October with instructions on storage/care. If your dancer will not own a current school t-shirt or jacket by the time of Oireachtas, a t-shirt will be loaned to them with the option to purchase.
Competition Registration Information
Registration for all teams and solos is done by Jim Mueller and Lauren Crowe-Mueller. Angela will collect all registration fees (these are rolled into your monthly invoices) and pass those onto Jim/Lauren.
Practices will begin Tue, Sept 3rd and meet twice a week, Tues/Thur: 5:30-6:15PM.
Please anticipate at least a few Saturday practices (2 in October and 1 in November). Dates TBA.

The block hotel for the Western US Regional Oireachtas this is year is the Hyatt Regency Downtown Denver Convention Center. The rate is $160/night. Reservations open up Thur, Aug 15th at 9AM PST. Hotel updates can be found on their facebook page. Click here to be taken directly to the page. If a box pops up inviting you to open a Facebook account, just click "not now" at the bottom of the box and it will close up.
Disclaimer: Should you wish to book outside the room block, you will be held responsible for any fees An Daire Academy incurs as a result of the block hotels not fully selling their rooms. This fee is equal to a one-night stay at a block hotel. Historically speaking, non-block hotels generally booked after Oct 5th are safe from the regional fine.
Parent Volunteer Assignments: You will be supplied with a ziplock kit of any supplies you might need.
