Author: 4 grades but 2 champ levels? Not enough champ levels for the older age groups.
Subject: Has adding another champ level been considered? (m)

I don't know if it would make comps even smaller and even less competitive or if it would bring out more open champs who typically don't place (and have stopped feising because of it). For example, my dancer's age group at nationals looks a lot like it does at oireachtas. Lots of TC's kids. Lots of outstanding dancers. They are the best and will always be on top. But with so many really good ones, the mid-pack dancers tend to get discouraged into not feising when there are only 8 dancers and 4 of them are top 10 at MARO. Not going to place so why go? If those WQs weren't there and the midpack group came out to feis in their own comp, we'd have a nice competition. Then perhaps like PC, you win enough of those, you need to be with the top dogs. There's just such a huge difference between winning 3 prelim feises and moving into OC and being on the podium at worlds year after year. They should only be dancing together for oireachtas and nationals.
