ESSDA wants to hear from YOU!

The new ESSDA Board would love to engage and involve our supporters and followers much more and have therefore put together a VERY quick and easy survey which we are hoping you will take 30 seconds to complete:

**If you are already an ESSDA member then please wait for a different survey to hit your email inbox – this survey is specifically for those who aren’t current members!

We REALLY want to hear what you have to say, and will be really grateful for your time on both surveys.

UK Fun Competition – Saturday 6th October 2018

The UK Fun Competition is an informal and fun practice competition for starter, beginner and improver same-sex couples.

The event is intended to be a fun practice competition without the pressure of larger international competitions, it is therefore particularly suitable for starters, beginners and improvers–so find a partner and come have a go! There will be no B or A class in the Graded Ballroom & Latin competitions–couples are kindly requested not to enter in a competition in which they have previously competed in B class or higher (classifications in senior competitions excluded), however you may enter another competition in which you have not previously competed in the upper classes (ie. if you ordinarily dance B in Ballroom you may enter the Latin competition if you have not previously competed in B or A class). All dancers are welcome to enter the Fun Dance competitions (no classes).
