Subject: It's the discretion of the judge. Some judges would rather tie for just 1, 2 or 3 so the child doesn't get discouraged at an early age (especially beginner). You will learn through the years that results are very subjective. Enjoy!!

[> Award percentage -- An AD, 18:59:07 08/15/17 Tue (c-73-190-92-113.hsd1.or.comcast.net/

Most Feiseanna have a plan for the % of dancers to receive awards, 40-50% is typical. Lower shares are sometimes used. In some regions, Only 1st, 2nd and 3rd places are used, even if 10 dancers are getting awards. AD's from those regions are accustomed to tiieing 1st-3rd. In other regions, 4th, 5th and lower awards are used. In most Mid-America feiseanna, the placements and the ties are at the lower levels. In Mid-Am, most tabulating companies are going to identify which are the top scores to hit the feis-defined award %. See if this explanation fits your experience. Alternatively, it is quite possible that a judge just wanted those dancers tied at those levels.
