Shannon and Coco’s Story
When Shannon was younger, she had a deep love for dance. Hours were spent in her room, moving to her favorite tunes, even though she never tried Irish dancing herself.
She vividly recalls the excitement of watching performances like Riverdance on TV and being captivated by talents like Natalie MacMaster when she performed in her town.
As time passed, adulthood brought its own set of responsibilities and demands, and Shannon reluctantly set aside her dancing passion. Work and other obligations left her with little time for personal pursuits.
However, a turning point arrived when her daughter, Coco, enthusiastically embraced Irish dancing.
Coco’s dedication and passion for the art filled Shannon with pride and inspiration. She realized that she wanted to support her daughter’s journey and began searching for suitable Irish dance attire.
Shannon soon discovered that finding cute and appealing Irish dance-inspired clothing was a challenging task. Most options were either too plain or overly adorned with embellishments. She yearned for something that would ignite Coco’s enthusiasm for dance and allow her to proudly wear it to school.
The idea of establishing their own Irish dance spirit wear clothing company took shape in Shannon’s mind. She joined forces with Coco, and together they embarked on a creative journey to design clothing that would exude fun and inspiration.
Their goal was to craft attire that would evoke excitement and passion in fellow dancers.
This shared vision gave birth to FeistyFitzy.
Shannon and Coco set out to create vibrant, engaging apparel that encouraged people to embrace dance and express their true selves. Their mission was to help individuals convey their joy and happiness through the art of Irish dance.
For those seeking to kindle their passion for Irish dance, FeistyFitzy became the ultimate destination. Their collection offered everything needed to feel confident and showcase love for this beloved sport.
The name “FeistyFitzy” was inspired by Shannon’s childhood nickname, Fitzy, and the spirited Irish heritage shared by both Shannon and Coco. The inclusion of “Feis” in the name was a delightful coincidence.
In addition to managing their shop, Shannon and Coco eagerly sought collaborations with schools, particularly those in search of affordable options and fundraising opportunities.
FeistyFitzy provided a range of options, including all-over prints, scalable pricing, and year-round order hosting at no additional cost. Their offerings were fresh and flexible, enabling schools to easily embrace them and welcome new families into the fold. The aim was to provide a fun and engaging experience within this wonderful community.
Shannon and Coco are grateful for the support they received and look forward to meeting and enjoying their journey with others who share their passion for Irish dance.
