Latest Announcement

Following the briefing from Boris Johnson (5th July) it looks as though we are heading towards a very welcome relaxation of the lockdown measures currently imposed on us. Just a reminder that in order to attend any approaching competitions or championships please ensure you have renewed your professional membership and your dancers' status cards. Also if you wish to promote any of your 2021 competitions you must have renewed your promoters licence before you can advertise or run these events. In all cases government guidelines and local authority recommendations must be met. If you are in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland please ensure you follow your region's regulations as things may be a little different. This is really good news for our industry and a truly positive step for all of us. Let's get dancing again!
