The Emerald City Feis is the result of a lifetime of friendship and collaboration between the teachers of Baile Glas Irish Dancers and Tara Academy of Irish Dance. Established in 2003 by Maggie Corrigan, Sara Williams, Sara Leekley, and Patti Gats, the Emerald City Feis has been the joint effort of these two Seattle Irish dance schools.

The feis enjoyed eleven successful years at the Northwest Rooms at the Seattle Center, from 2003 to 2013, before that venue became unavailable for further rentals. In 2014, the Emerald City Feis moved to a new downtown location, and we look forward to many more years of feising and friendship.
