For the 15th time – as a good old tradition – the first competition in our competition calendar was the Grand-Prix in Düsseldorf. The results can be found on our 2018 result page.
We are already looking forward towards 2020 when the Eurogames will be held in Düsseldorf and the experienced TSC conTakt Düsseldorf e.V. will be among the organizers for the same-sex dance competitions.
29/09/2018 – Save the Date!
Another competition has been announced for the Autumn of 2018.
The German Dance Sport Club TSC Fischbach will organize for the first time a same-sex dance competition in Kelkheim near Frankfurt. (20km from Frankfurt Airport)
The venue will be the spacious ballroom in “Stadthalle Kelkheim”.
ESSDA wishes all members, dancers, adjudicators and supporters a happy 2018!
Our anniversary year ended with the Nordic Open in Copenhagen (the results can be found here) and the new year will have many interesting competitions and events in store. 2018 starts with the competition in Düsseldorf, Germany and apart from the “classics” like the Pink Jukebox Trophy in London, the German Open (this year in Cologne), and the competition in Berlin organized by pinkballroom there will be the Norwegian Open in Oslo and the 10th Gay Games held in Paris.
And hopefully the competition calendar will fill up the white spaces in the second half year of 2018.

This year’s competition on the 24th of March 2018 in Dresden has been cancelled by the organizers.
BUT: Team Munich and Savoy Munich stepped into the breach and will organize the 2nd Munich Equality Dance Competiiton on this same date.
Sorry for all who have already booked or planned their journey to Dresden. Hopefully you can change your destination to Munich.
Since the Swiss Open in Zurich has been cancelled for this year, there will be a Club/Team Competition on November 18th with mixed and same-sex couples.
