Stephen & Charlotte


Stephen Arnold and Charlotte Cutler are sad to announce that after nearly 3 years of dancing together their partnership has ended.  They were North of England Amateur Ballroom Champions last year and UK Closed Amateur Ballroom finalists.  They were proud to represent England in the European Championships in Moscow earlier this year and regret that they will not be able to compete at the World Championships next month.  They would like to thank EADA for their support, along with all their teachers, sponsors, friends and family for all their help in guiding them to success.  Stephen wants to return to the competition floor as soon as possible and is currently looking for a new partner. 


We are pleased to announce that the IDSF has become a member of the International Masters Games Association which means Dancesport will now feature in the World and European Masters Games from 2011.  These are international multi-sport events open to all Senior (over 35yrs) athletes.  Most Masters' sports are organised in different age classes reflecting intervals of five to ten years between one and the other.   

The 2011 European Masters Games will be held in Lignano, Italy on 17th and 18th September 2011 at the Lignano Sabbiadoro Sports Hall.
There will be events in Ballroom for 35+, 45+ and 55+ and in Latin for 35+ and 45+.

The 2013 World Masters Games will be held in Turin, Italy.
