We apologize in advance, this should have been posted with the tights a month ago but I admit it slipped our minds.  Along with the black tights each dancer needs to have black dance briefs to go over the tights. Black spandex shorts will not be accepted. Here are links to adult and youth sizes on amazon that are all available for 2 day shipping with Prime. You may also purchase them elsewhere if you would like as long as they are a similar style!

Oireachtas Teams

[posted 9/16/2017] 

All dancers attending the Western Regional Oireachtas 2017 in Phoenix Arizona need to purchase black transition tights to wear with their school dresses.  Transition means there is a hole in the bottom of the foot (super convenient believe me!).  You can buy them on the Capezio website or find them on amazon. 

Younger Dancers [12 years and younger]

  • Quantity: One pair per dancer (although a back up pair is always a good idea in case there is a snag)
  • Brand: Capezio
  • Style: 1916C
  • Color: Black
  • Size: Refer to size guide

After the first of the year we will be beginning adult ceili classes.  This is a great opportunity for parents to become more involves and to be able to help your children with technique!
