Dancesport England

DANCESPORT ENGLAND: We are pleased to announce that Dancesport England is now a recognised full member association of the IDSF.  Dancesport England will replace EADA as the IDSF member association in England.  EADA will now focus on the interests of members who do not wish to compete abroad.

More information will follow in the next few weeks


Dancing NREs

Those registered with the BDC rather than EADA may dance in EADA NREs but will need to apply for a licence to do so, at a cost of £15 per year per person (regardless of age category).  Contact Pat the Membership Secretary on membership [at] eada [dot] org [dot] uk to apply.  NRE rules remain the same.


Change to NRE

Please note that the Laits have changed the date of their comp in Ipswich (with Junior Ballroom and Youth Ballroom & Latin NREs) from 11th December to 27th November 2011.  The 2011 chart calendar will be amended shortly.
