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 FOR THOSE SELECTED TO REPRESENT ENGLAND
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.
