Frequently Asked Questions:
WHAT PRECAUTIONS WILL BE IN PLACE THIS YEAR TO KEEP US SAFE?
Full information will follow but this feis will be run very similarly to last year. Masks for all attendees. Entry into ballrooms will be scheduled and controlled. Social distancing will be enforced in seating, waiting in line, and standing side stage. Dancers may remove masks to dance, if they choose, and will dance in their own individual space.
Is this feis happening in 2021?
Yes, and we are back to our normal date and venue.
Why are there merged or double age groups? If you come from outside Florida or the South, you may not be used to combined age groups. Our feis entry numbers are lower than other feis' so we have to combine age groups to make sure there are at least 5 dancers, to make the win “count.”
Does your feis offer “Second Chance” competitions? No, we now offer two full feis' so we no longer need to offer second chance dances.
Do I have to dance both feis'? No, you can compete in either or both feis'.
Do the Saturday winners withdraw from Sunday’s competitions? No, by IDTANA rules, they have the right to continue competing in that level.
If I win on Saturday, can I move up on Sunday? Yes, you can make changes to your entries for $10 per dancer. Just go to tabulation.
Is Sunday a "black out" day? No, Sunday is alter ego day so dancers can dress in their favorite dress up costume - any color! Or they can choose to wear their dance costumes.
Do I get a new number for Sunday? Yes.
Can I enter the feis on the day? Yes, for a fee of $20 per dancer. Go to Tabulation (at the Awards Island in the center of the ballroom)
I made a mistake on entries, can I change on the day? Yes, for a fee of $10 per dancer.
Why can I not enter online anymore? There is a window of time from the Tuesday before the feis when you can no longer enter online. We shut entries down in order to print the paperwork. You can still enter at the feis on the day for a late fee of $20.
Can I enter or change my entry on Friday night? No, we do not have tabulation staff available until Saturday morning.
Where do the Grade exams happen? The exams will run in a private room upstairs from the ballrooms. It will be clearly sign posted on the day. Only candidates, the examiner and feis staff can be in the room during the exams.
I see "Orlando Feis Grade Exams," are there also Alter Ego Grade Exams? There are exams on both days, but all of the exams are listed as the Orlando Feis Grade exams, for entry purposes and will be sign posted as the same.
Do you take credit card for on the day changes? No, but this year we can take Paypal, Venmo, check or exact cash. For cash payments we will provide you with an envelope so that our volunteers don't need to handle the cash. For that reason cash must be the exact amount. No change will be given.
