Results from the British Nationals online
Congratulations to our British Champions.



At the Annual General Meeting of the IDSF in June 2010 it was agreed that IDSF would create a Professional Division. If England wish to have a voice in this decision then we must, as a corporate member, take some action now.
 As members of the British Dance Council we have always recognised their authority over all domestic affairs in England and we do not wish to disturb this valuable relationship.
English Amateur Dancesport Limited will therefore cease to be a member of the IDSF but application for membership will be made by another of our Dancesport Group of Companies, Dancesport  England who will deal with all  matters on behalf of those members who wish to take part in International events. More details will be available at the Annual General Meeting.
