The Royal Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing, like most people, businesses and organisations, has been working hard to adapt to the unprecedented conditions delivered by the COVID-19 pandemic while conforming to the contingency measures being set by each of our Governments and their respective legislation.
The pandemic is impacting across the world and proving to be more disruptive and potentially longer lasting than many of us might have first thought. The duration of the crisis will be dictated by many factors which will vary from country to country.
Accordingly, for the health and well-being of our entire global dancing community, the difficult decision has been made to cancel all RSOBHD Judges Tests in 2020. We are very conscious that candidates’ plans, both study and financial, would be escalating in the near future and this was taken into consideration when making our final decision. This was the unanimous decision of the Judges Committee members which was supported unanimously by the Office Bearers.
