For all same-sex dancers who think about taking part in competitions or are just unsure about it, our board member responsible for marketing Trix created a booklet with a lot of useful information about your first start. And even if you have already competed you might find some new and helpful information.
ESSDA wants to thank all who were involved and helped creating this booklet!
