July 2024

There is an increase in the fragmentation and divisions within the Dance Industry that require attention.
The lack of a recognised respected overarching UK wide National Governing Body for our Dancesport leaves a void.
EADA is currently discussing with appropriate organisations to road map a way forward with this project with the following aims and objectives.
• Regulation of coach education, credentialing and standards.
• Regulation of Safeguarding in DanceSport.
• Regulation of Competition Event Producers with regards to adjudication and athlete health and safety.
• Supporting access to funding streams and support from grassroots to elite levels. 
• Communication and representation on behalf of Dancesport with government and other bodies/organisations.
• Development and growth of Dancesport in England.
• Participation and success of Team England at  World Championships.
• National talent ID pathways for athletes, coaches, and officials to compete at the international level (World Championships, Olympics, and Paralympics).
• In collaboration with the UK’s other National Governing Bodies (NGBs), to develop TeamGB representation at future Olympic Games.

November 2023

EADA wishes to make it clear that EADA does not support or have any connection with the newly formed entity BDSA. They claim they are the Governing body for amateur dancers. Whilst anyone can call themselves what they like, it doesn't mean they are. It is not possible to have two National governing Bodies covering the same sport. You can only have ONE recognised NGB and it already exists as EADA for England alongside corresponding recognised NGBs for Scotland and Wales. Recognition means that EADA dancers are represented at Regulatory body level and at Government level.

Membership for 2023 will run from the 1st January 2023 until the 31st December 2023. The annual cost is £10.0 for the year.

Latest government guidance for covid 19 grassroots guidance for the public and sports providers

21st October 2020

This link will take you to the latest government guidance on the safe use of Dance facilities.

24th June 2020

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.
