ScotDance USA Competitions

The ScotDance USA (SDUSA) Board of Directors has been working closely with the Royal Scottish Official Board of Highland Dance (RSOBHD) in Scotland to be able to open up competitions once again in the United States. In early April the RSOBHD approved the SDUSA request to hold competitions starting June 1, 2021! Read the announcement for more details. The SDUSA Competitions Forward Team worked diligently over the past months to figure out how we could resume dance competitions safely.

Important rule about earning stamps for beginner dancers:

As of January 1, 2011, the Scottish Official Board of Highland Dance instituted a rule regarding stamps earned by Beginner dancers. Stamps will only be awarded if a Beginner dancer places 1st, 2nd or 3rd in at least one of the following Highland dances: Fling, Sword, Seann Triubhas, Strathespey & Reel, Half Tulloch (or Half Hullachan), Special or Trophy Fling. This means if the only dance a Beginner places in are the Lilt and/or Flora, they will not earn a stamp for that competition. This rule only affects dancers in the BEGINNER category. Novice dancers will continue to earn stamps if they win a 1st, 2nd or 3rd prize in any dance.
