This competition will offer Premier and Restricted Premier classes according to the rules and regulations of the RSOBHD and ScotDance Canada. A Restricted Premier dancer is defined as one who has not won an overall trophy in a Premier or Restricted Premier class for two (2) years preceding (insert competition date). An overall trophy win is defined as the dancer with the highest total number of points having competed in more than one (1) individual dance in a Premier age category that has 6 or more competitors. Winners of special dances such as a Special Hornpipe or Special Jig, Best-Dressed or Choreography event DO NOT qualify as an overall trophy win. A Championship and Pre-Championship are both considered a Premier event. I fully understand the rules and regulations governing Restricted Premier and/or Premier classes for this event. With this understanding, my preference is indicated via online entry. Failure to indicate a preference will automatically default your competitor status to PREMIER.

Entries will close April 5, 2024 at 11:59pm.

CURRENT 2024 SCOTDANCE CARD MUST BE SHOWN TO RECEIVE COMPETITION NUMBER.

NO TELEPHONE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED, NO REFUNDS, CANADIAN FUNDS ONLY.
