Dancing through it

Following the ongoing Covid-19 situation and suspension of dance training and competitions, the Dancesport Great Britain Presidium have decided to extend all member’s subscriptions for a year or until we are able to return to the floor.

We know this is a difficult time for all of our dancers, teachers, coaches, officials and supporters and we hope that it will not be long before we can return to the wonderful world of dancing.

In the meantime we wish you all good health and hope to see you soon back on the floor.

What a Year!

The 2020 season started on a high note.

On 16th February an all-grades dance festival was taking place, with DSGB members taking part in 6 different categories.

The beautiful Coney Hall was full of dancers, young and old.  From Juvenile Beginners, to Juniors 1 & 2, to Youth & Adult participants in Standard and Latin, it was an incredibly successful day.

The first sign of trouble came when some of the trophies could not be presented due to delivery issues in Asia.

Few could have predicted that isolated cases of flu would grow into a Worldwide disaster.

As the country went into lockdown, events had to be paused, with DSGB dancers practising on Zoom.

We wish all our members a Happy 2021!

We can’t wait to come back on the floor, to dance, improve and see our dance partners and friends again!

Dazzling Dubai

At the end of last year several of our couples and adjudicators attended the Dubai Dance Week 2019 which gave a great end to the year for all.

Although Dubai has such a great reputation for glitz and glamour there are very few Ballroom and Latin competitions held there. Dubai Dance Week has certainly shown the Dancesport world how sparkling a competition can be.

George & Ada along with Nick & Charmaine both traveled from the UK on a relatively short flight and were greeted with all the hospitality that you would expect from the people of Dubai. Thanks to only a small amount of time difference little adjustment was required before our couples headed to the competition floor.

DDW 2019 was held across a number of days and included competitions for all, both amateur and professional as well as all age categories. For our two couples the competition provided an opportunity to dance in a number of events from Rising Star to the World Open both in Adult and Senior 1.

Great success was had by both couples with George & Ada placing 5th in Senior 1 Standard and 7th in Senior 1 Latin whilst Nick and Charmaine reached 3rd in the Senior 1 Latin and 7th in Senior 1 Standard.

GlitterBall Classic at Trim, Ireland

DSGB couple, Jakub and Shannon, travelled to Trim in Ireland to compete at the GlitterBall Classic competition on 19th May. The adult couple have been dancing and competing for a number of years in both Standard and Latin American categories.

Shannon said: “The competition at Trim has such a friendly and fun vibe, with the hosts being as accommodating as possible to ensure we felt welcome and to make it easy for us to get to and from the location.

“The other couples were supportive, even though we were not on home ground, and their cheering for one another made for a great atmosphere. We eased into things with each round, and with growing enthusiasm. As we’d attended the previous year we generally felt not too anxious and were just there to get the job done, which we did.”
