Payment of the ESSDA Membership Fee

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.

Watch the Dutch Formation Team and Imagine: Update!

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!

Mission Statement

ESSDA is the European Same-Sex Dance Association.

ESSDA will respect differences as they may occur between people, concerning race, gender, sexual or political orientation, religion, nationality or language, disability or any other base.

ESSDA will respect differences as they may occur between organisations, concerning nationality, language, political orientation, liaisons with other dance (sport) or sport organisations or organisations for LGBT emancipation.

ESSDA acknowledges that the roots and base of same-sex dance and same-sex dance sport are the expression of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender identities and relationships. This will be considered as part of any decisions, guidelines and developments for the future.
