2012 SOBHD Championship Steps  


The SOBHD would like to draw your attention to an error which occurred after the 2012 Championship Steps were previously distributed.  The document containing the steps was transferred to a new template on the SOBHD website, which resulted in an incorrect version being posted for a short time, specifically in relation to the Highland Fling introduction and the last step in the Adult Sword dance.

For clarity, the 2012 Championship Steps was reposted. The version now posted on this website and the SOBHD is the correct version.  The SOBHD has apologized for any inconvenience caused.

New SOBHD Rules regarding Beginner Category and card stamping


Dancers, Parents, Teachers and Competition Organizers please note the following SOBHD rule change effective January 1, 2011:


1.      In  respect  of  the  Beginner  category,  their  card  will  be  stamped  at  every   competition  where  they  win  a  first, second  or  third  prize  in  ANY of  the  Highland   dances:  Highland  Fling,  Sword  Dance,  Sean  Triubhas,  Reel,  or Special  or  Trophy   Fling;


2.      In  respect  of  the  Novice  category,  their  card  will  be  stamped  at  every competition  where  they  win  a  first,  second  or  third  prize  in  any  dance.  


What does this mean?  It means that a Beginner dancer will not have their card stamped for a first, second or third place win in the Flora or Lilt.  If they also have a top three placing in one of the above Highland dances, then they will get a stamp, but if their only top three win was one of the National dances, then they will not receive a stamp on their card.


There is no change to Primary, Novice. Intermediate or Premier.
