We would like to share an update with you regarding the Eurogames in Rome 2019.

We have now received a draft agreement from Team Rome to host the European Championships and we are currently setting up a joint conference call between ESSDA and ‘Team Roma’ to discuss the finer detail and ensure a successful and well planned competition for both parties. A partnership has not yet been confirmed.

We haven’t had the chance to speak to the Dancesport co-ordinators as yet so eagerly await that opportunity by the end of the month.

We look forward to sharing more with you over the coming weeks, but would like to let you know we are working hard to make this a great competition for everyone!
