Payment can be Venmo, pay pal, or check to VIDA (our booster club, Virginia Irish Dance Association). Please let me know by FRIDAY! We have plenty of squares left as we are trying to fill 500 squares!!

Winners receive:

It’s fundraiser time!! The Southern Academy is doing a super bowl pool! There are two games left to determine who goes to the super bowl, but you can buy your squares now! $5 squares. Winners get:
$50 first quarter
$50 second quarter
$50 third quarter
$100 final

Please comment below or send a message to Kristin how many squares you want. If you don’t know how it works, you’re basically spending $5 each square on a chance to win. Kind of like a raffle ticket! If your square had the score at the end of each quarter, you win. Squares are random and you don’t have to understand football to buy a square! Thank you for your support!!

Four more days until the Southern Oireachtas. Our school has 43 dancers attending from Virginia and 31 dancers from Tennessee.
At our Virginia dress rehearsal and good luck send off yesterday, I received the most special gift. Every year, our senior dancers make fun paper plate awards for everyone. I’ve received “the poof master” award, the “what would we do without you” award, the “turnout Titan” award, since I’m a TN Titans football fan.....to name a few. The awards are always sweet or funny or inspiring. This year, my paper plate was more special than I could ever imagine. Words matter. Kindness matters. And I received the sweetest thank you card from a new dancer competing in just one competition. I love how she thanks me for making sure her “dancing was right.” ❤️ I sure hope Tim O’Hare is smiling down 😇 because his legacy is definitely living on through me and our Southern Academy students. I am so grateful for all he taught me. It will never be easy without someone you love, but I sure am blessed to have had him in my life. Best of luck to all our colleagues. It’s almost here!

The Celtic Holiday Feis was so much fun last weekend in Williamsburg VA. From some of our beginners first 1sts, to dancers qualifying for the next level, traditional set wins, nontraditional set wins, and practicing our Teams for the Oireachtas. We are so proud of our dancers and the family atmosphere we have. Congratulations to the feis chairs, committee, judges, musicians, and to all the dancers! #irishdance #irishdancing #feisfun #feisfriends #southernacademyofirishdance #letitbesaid #irishdancevirginia #ceilidancing #dreamteam #teamsforthewin #irishdancefamily

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends, and students of Tim O’Hare. May his legacy forever be remembered and his passion be continued. We at Southern Academy will carry on his style and dedicate our dancing to him. May he Rest In Peace

R.I.P. Tim O'Hare A.D.C.R.G.
November 12th 2019 - Rest In Peace, dear friend.

It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform you of the sudden passing of our colleague, Tim O’Hare.

Tim was a passionate and dedicated teacher, adjudicator and volunteer for IDTAMA, IDTANA, and CLRG. He served both as President of the IDTANA and as Vice-Chair of An Coimisiún le Rincí Gaelacha, and was an active member of the Oireachtas Committee of CLRG.

His spirit and enthusiasm were unmatched, and his light was extinguished far too soon. There are no words to adequately express how much Tim will be missed.

The officers and members of CLRG send heartfelt condolences to his family and friends at this difficult time.

More details about sending condolences and about funeral details will be shared here when available.

One of the American Pride Feis Vendors, ZYIA activewear has agreed to leave the link open until November 1st. Remember that 75% of her proceeds will go to support former SAID dancer, Rosie. Please consider making a purchase for a good cause. Perfect for holiday gifts!! Dancers love to wear the Tanks & Shorts for dance. I love the leggings and men can find something in the golf line.

I will be bringing THE LIFFEY RIVERS IRISH DANCER MYSTERIES to the McGrath Feis on April 22nd. Hope to meet up with some of you then. You can go to www.liffeyrivers.com to have a look at the books. See you soon!
For those going to Tall Oaks Assisted Living tomorrow: The address listed on Sign Up Genius is different from Tall Oaks website. Sign Up Genius has the address as 12022 N Shore Dr Reston but I found the number address to be 12052. 12022 is the address for Tall Oaks Shopping Center.
We just happened to be going through the drive-thru at CFA tonight. Such a treat to see such talented dancers while we waited!
