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.

[> Definitely at the judge's discretion (though I think some feiseanna give direction to place through 5th or just 3rd), and more common to see ties at the top in the beginner levels. If you're wondering before a feis, you could check results from the year prior for that feis to see if there's a pattern being encouraged by the feis vs. just the judge's preference. Happy feising & hope your DD loves it! -- No name, 00:28:28 08/18/17 Fri (c-24-91-35-161.hsd1.ma.comcast.net/
