Subject: Have never met a dancer happier to have only 14 recall places compared to 50. How big an achievement it is will really depend on the quality of dancers competing.
In reply to: - 's message, "Well obviously, but if you can't understand that 50% recall is better than 33% ? In the larger section 100 dancers DO NOT recall, in the smaller section 14 don't recall. Getting into the top 10 out of 150 dancers is a much bigger achievement than top 10 out of 28." on Tue, Oct 09 2018, 10:19:24"

  • I would measure achievement on how many people were ahead of me not how many were behind me so 10th at Nationals is 10th, regardless of number of competitors. (NT) -- D, Tue, Oct 09 2018, 11:15:17"
  • No can't agree with that,10th out of 10 competitors is last place. Agree with previous poster, would much rather 50% recall. Whenever anyone asks what place you came, the next questions is how many competitors. 10th out of 150 is much more impressive ( and way harder to achieve ) than 10th out of 28. At the end of the day you can only compete against who is there so unfortunately so many dancers have left, I am sure that we have seen the end of the big sections of previous years.
