Most bardic competitions in Ansteorra are categorized into "Song, Story &
Poetry" ... many of us are also trying to add new categories ... such as
"Instrumental" and "Other".  The "Other" category, albiet broad, encompasses
anything from juggling, to dramatic interpretation, to interpretive dance
(any style - from the bellydance to the highland fling).  Should these
things be included?  I don't know that "Bardic" is the appropriate umbrella,
but right now it seems to be the only umbrella that fits.
