McGrath Irish Dance Feis 2020

Thank you for your interest in our Feis this year. We are doing our upmost to be able to bring you our Feis and we hope you can join us. We hope you enjoy the new ideas we have to offer, which we think will benefit your dancer, your safety and the planet 😊


We welcome our Adjudicator, John Joyce ADCRG, from NSW.

Feis Dates

Our feis this year will be help over two days to ensure all dancers can compete. September 12 and 13, 2020. Due to Covid-19, sections will run slower to ensure everyone’s safety. However, because of the two days we can increase our normal competitor number cut-off. We hope to see many dancers travelling to the feis.

Proposed Timetable

Saturday: Beginners, Primary and all Elementary, Intermediate and Open Dancers under 12 years.

Sunday: All elementary, Intermediate and Open Dancers 12 years and Over and adult competitions.

Online Entry

Enter the Feis on our website at Don’t forget there are limited numbers of entries, so please get in early to avoid disappointment.   

Closing Date

Entries will close slightly earlier this year so we can share our finalised timetable earlier and ensure we have in place our Covid-19 strategies. Entries will close 31 August 2020. Late entries may be accepted with an additional fee of $20.


We are hoping to run our event as sustainable as possible and this includes prizes. We are excited to share our prizes and we hope all the dances will love them. Please assist in our day with limiting the amount of plastic packed food and snacks in the venue. We would love to be able to recycle our whole day! Canteen options will be assessed closer to time with what restrictions are in place. Emails to all entries will be sent out advising what will be in stock on the day.

Dancer Feedback Entry

This year, dancers have the option to enter our feedback section. Dancers will perform on their own and the adjudicator will provide written feedback to the dancer. This will enable each dancer to be filmed and have their photograph taken on stage by one family member. A dancer may enter this section twice and perform any dance/s of their choice. This section is available to Elementary, Intermediate, Open and Adult dancers only.

Entry Options

Novice and Beginner will have ‘warm up’ Dances available at $10 each, and a Premiership at $35.

Elementary, Intermediate, Open and Adult Sections will have a 3 round Premiership from $40. Warm up feedback sections are $15.

Door Entry Fee is $15. This will be titled ‘Transaction Fee’ during your online entry experience.
