Our next competition will be Sept 19, 2020. The New World Dancesport Challenge has been adopted as our sister competition. This competition will be held in Columbus Ohio May 22nd-23rd. Columbus is a great place to visit. I hope that you will consider attending. I plan to compete with a teacher and also stay an extra day to see the world famous Columbus Zoo again.

We are experimenting with other small competition formats and developing the infrastructure to support it. A fully automated cloud based system is in development and planned for release in 2021 For this years competition competitors may fill out a pdf and email it. You will be invoiced through PayPal.

We are changing the format to reduce the cost for competitors. Competition entrants will be charged a flat price regardless of the number of events available or . Pricing will be $35/Youth and $50/Adult. You may also to take exams and enter competitive events for the same flat price. If you have never taken the USISTD medal series you may find more information at the USISTD Website.

USA Dance now allows organizers and chapters to bid on hosting the national competition. I'd like to see Georgia DanceSport with skilled volunteers who can do this. To get to that point would require a volunteer base working year round with planning, logistics, and marketing skills so that in 5-6 years we are hosting our own NQE. Many of you have children competing at this years Georgia DanceSport event. By 2024 those same youngsters could be competing at Championship level.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with planning, logistics and competition management. If you feel that you can contribute then contact me.
