The 2012 National Wheelchair Dance Sport Championship will take place on Saturday 29 September 2012, with a Gala Dinner in the evening to celebrate wheelchair dance sport and wheelchair dance.
The event, being run by the Wheelchair Dance Sport Association (UK), will take place at the Watford Colosseum and will show the best the UK has to offer in the world of wheelchair dance and wheelchair dance sport as well as beginners to the sport.
We are pleased to announce that on 15th May 2012 the English Amateur Dancesport Association Ltd was registered as a charity (registered charity number 1147259). EADA will continue to support amateur dancers of all levels, and will also seek to promote community participation in healthy recreation by promoting amateur dancesport for the public benefit.

The Council of English Amateur Dancesport Association Ltd wish to clarify that EADA Ltd is no longer affiliated with any international dancing organisation, and is not a member of the WDSF (formerly IDSF). Dancesport England is the member organisation of WDSF in this country. We hope that this removes any doubt as to EADA's position and that our main concern is for unity within the dance world, and to further the good of dancing in England.
