Heading to the Michigan Feis this weekend or the Baltimore Feis in Maryland? Idaho’s Boise Feis By the River or the Oklahoma State Championships? Perhaps the Syracuse Feis or Nassau County AOH Feis in New York?

No matter your competitive destination this weekend, we want to share four new tunes inspired by the 80s to add to your own warm up 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!

“Pump Up The Jam” – Technotronic
The catchy beat will simply pump you up to get on the dance floor.

“Fame” – Irene Cara
Pop it on and start thinking about how everyone in the Irish dancing world should remember your name after you kill it on stage.

“We Got The Beat” – The Go-Go’s
Simply because you, too, can keep the beat…just with your hard shoes.

“The Final Countdown” – Europe
Think the “Rocky” theme song with an 80s spin. Play this right before you have to line up side stage.
