Heading to South Carolina this weekend for the Raleigh Feis or the Minnesota Feis in Saint Paul? How about the St. Ambrose Fall Feis in California or Massachusetts’ New England Autumn Feis? Or maybe the Petri School Feis in New York?

No matter your competitive destination this weekend, we want to share four tunes—inspired by past Olympic Games—you should add to your own playlist before lacing up and taking the stage. Best of luck to all competitors and be sure to come back and share your results with us!

“I Believe” – Nikki Yanofsky

This will push away any doubts you have about not giving your all out on stage.

“Reach” – Gloria Estefan
Put this on while going through your stretches.
