Can I just say in defence of the Scotsman article, that something over here
has got to somehow change - that the underlying thought and belief that SCD
is for older people is quite dominant here. Yes in the last couple of
years RSCDS has changed from within, but it will still take some time before
this change reach the general public. And it will only change if RSCDS and
its members do not hesitate to highlight the fact.
Perhaps we are doing our bit to help this new innovative thought process by
sending in the article - yes I think we all know that it may not be
published, and yes it may be edited. Perhaps it will inform someone in the
press core that SCD is danced by many different people. That Scotland
should start supporting all its cultural endeavors not just a chosen few.
