As we are aware of the high bank commission for transfers from non-Euro countries we currently are sorting out other possibilities to pay the yearly ESSDA membership fee.
Especially for the UK members and participants of the UK Pink Jukebox Competition on 20th of February in London we can offer the possibility to pay the membership fee in cash (Euros or Pound Sterling) to our membership officer Chrisi Lyons.
The results of the competition on 28th of November 2015 in Hamburg are now online on the page of Club Saltatio. In addition there is a nice article about the competition (in German only).

The first “serious” same-sex dance sequence of Standard Formation Dance was performed at the European Championships 2015 in Poland by the Dutch team DSV Dance Impression. Watch the video at approx 2:40min on youtube.
Even if the same-sex sequences have been banned by the WDSF – good luck for the World Championship in Ludwigsburg. Be proud and imagine!
The team reached the final of the World Championships on 28th November and finished 6th. At least a statement for tolerance was made in the final sequence when two male dancers performed a lift together. Congratulations!
