Currently the Open Competitions are restricted to the age ranges -
12 and under 16
The organisers of the Braemar Gathering are aware that there is some interest from Premier dancers at the younger age range between 9 and under 12. To gauge the potential for including this age range in the 2017 programme the organisers would ask that any interested competitors contact the Society Secretary email@example.com prior to 31 March 2017 to allow him to identify if a competition is viable.
