Hi Eike,
Thanks for your support.
I agree with the "travel and see" bit, but I would like to be included in
that too. Why should the young get preferential treatment?? Mayhap an
"Exchange" system could be set up??

Another thing I think to have some relevance, relates to experience teaching
primary school kids Ceildh dances. We concentrated on fun fun fun and [to
some extent] damn precise footwork/ stance. The kids loved it and were so
impressed with my high kicks that one of the boys kicked himself right off
his feet and landed on his back - to the great amusement of all [including
himself] The result was very similar to that largely displayed at the
recent "700 schoolchildren in Kelvin Hall" - yet we are debarred from
"teaching" for RSCDS, because we don't have RSCDS standard qualifications.

Coincidentally, I just found this web page

Perhaps the future of Scottish Country/ Ceilidh actually lies here, rather
than with stuffy RSCDS.
Kind regards to all dancers....... regardless of you age or abilities [or
even your preferred form of dance].
