English Amateur Dancesport Association (EADA)
EADA represents the interests of amateur dancers (principally competitors) at the British Dance Council. Membership of EADA is beneficial in that it provides strength in numbers and enables stronger representation. Consider EADA the union for amateur ballroom and Latin dancers in England.
Dance Promoters Association (DPA)
The DPA co-ordinates many of the competitions run up and down the country, and operates the National League tables.
British Dance Council (BDC)
Anyone wishing to compete (except Beginner grade events), adjudicate, or scrutineer at any competition, must register and obtain the respective licence for the current year from the BDC. (In future, EADA may take over the role of registering amateur competitors.) The BDC also administrates the rules which govern the conduct of competitors and competitions.
Dancers’ Forget-Me-Not Fund
Now a registered charity, the Forget-Me-Not Fund runs events and receives donations raising money to provide a small gift and goodwill message for ill or injured dancers (whether social, competitive, or professional; Ballroom, Latin, Old Time, or Sequence), with the objective of showing support from the dancing community at a time of need.
To nominate a recipient for a Forget-Me-Not Fund gift, contact your area representative (as listed on the web site):
