We are delighted to announce that EADA has a new Patron, the Marquess of Sandford, Lord David Douglass. Most competitors will be familiar with David, as a stalwart adjudicator, who regularly graces the judging panels of the 'Sunday circuit' as well as the more illustrious championships.
He has been part of the dance world for more than 60 years, over which time he has gathered great understanding and insight into the running of the ballroom and Latin dance environment - as a competitor, teacher, Fellow and Examiner of the Allied Dancing Association, founder member of the Dance Promoters Association and executive committee member of the British Dance Federation.
His guidance and support is a real boon to English amateur dancers and to our association.

Eada has been actively involved in Meetings with several organisations that are in direct contact with Government advisors. We are publishing the latest information to dancers so that you are able to assess whether your Dance Teacher/Coach/Studio owner/Dance Promoter is providing a safe and compliant environment. Ultimately it is the Government Guidelines/legislation and your own risk assessment of the environment that should prevail.

The issue of Amateur dancers teaching is contentious, but EADA supports the ability of Amateurs to teach under the rules of the BDC. This ability in this modern world is of benefit to both the Amateur dancer and to those they teach. However such an ability is open to abuse by both Professional and Amateur.
We believe the EADA Coaching Scheme would be invaluable in regulating this issue.
