28th August 2020

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.

Sport and Recreation Alliance CEO, Lisa Wainwright responds to the latest government announcement which confirms that indoor leisure and sport facilities will remain closed.

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.
