Senior II events

Senior II NREs now 5-dance from the first round

Following problems that have been experienced with dances being ommitted from Senior II NREs by mistake, the Council has decided to change the NRE guidelines so that all Senior II NREs (Ballroom & Latin) will be a 5-dance from the first round, with immediate effect.  Promoters will be contacted in due course.

Change to NREs

Please note that due to venue problems, the NREs at Philip Wylies comps in October and December have had to be rescheduled.  These are:
Youth Latin & Senior II Latin on 24th October
Juvenile Latin & Senior III Ballroom on 12th December
They will be held at his comp on 19th December 2010, at the Thistle London Heathrow Hotel.
Apologies for any inconvenience.

Crystal Clover new store

Crystal Clover's new store in Cheam opened on May 5th, and offers an extensive range of fabrics  and accessories as well as exclusive collections of dancewear.  The new store is located on Ewell Rd, four shops away from Dance Options and within walking distance from Cheam railway station.


Travel insurance

We are delighted to announce that we have worked with our insurance providers to ensure all those whom we select to represent England will have fully comprehensive travel insurance which covers competing, when they travel to the Europeans/Worlds.  Many standard travel insurance policies will not cover competitive sports and activities, so we are investigating the possibility of extending this offer to all EADA members who compete internationally.
