make up your own steps and compete with them. As you can imagine, the dancing tends to be of a considerably lower standard than that of CLRG. I've seen competitions of OP champs and I would put them at the level of CLRG's prizewinners or new prelims. I'm sure there are exceptions but that was the impression of those of us who watched.

[> [> Subject: What started out as a reasonable answer quickly became an ugly and unnecessary commentary. There was no need to put others down as inferior to make yourself feel better. Try being kind, that's what we all need right now. OP- There are several dance organizations besides CLRG, and Open Platform comps are meant to be" open " to any organization's dancers. However CLRG does not allow it's dancers to compete Open Platform and there are penalties I believe.

[> [> Subject: CLRG dancers can participate in some of the Open Platform competitions overseas, but there are very few opportunities in, say, Sweden where they hold the Nordic Feis. The CLRG has given permission for our dancers to compete.

But your answer is mostly correct.
