Like many other parents, I *love* watching my daughter compete in Irish Dance. But I also enjoy the whole competition day! Yes, it is a long, hot, loud, tiring, crowded, harried, exciting event. Sounds like a perfect day, right? Well, maybe not always. But I will try to lend some insight, pass along important info, and share some tips that we’ve picked up along the way in our many years of feisin’!
