What are Second Chance competitions? Second Chance competitions are exactly that -- a second chance, another opportunity to compete! When registering at QuickFeis, simply register for your dancer's normal competitions and then add whichever dances your dancer would like to compete in again later in the feis day. Second Chance competitions will be adjudicated by a different judge and take place after the dancer's initial competitions are completed and results posted.

  • Second Chance competitions will be offered for Novice, Open Prizewinner and Preliminary Championship levels
  • Novice Second Chance Dances: Reel, Light Jig, Slipjig, Treble Jig & Hornpipe
  • Open Prizewinner Second Chance Dances: Reel, Slipjig, Treble Jig & Hornpipe
