Dear Dancing Community On behalf of the Board Directors, allow me to wish each and everyone of you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2016. Our successes of 2015 would not have been possible without your continued support and we thank your involvement and being part of Our Incredible Journey. We look forward to another memorable year filled with happy dancing memories and great achievements. We were very pleased with the resounding success of FIRST ever WDC AL Championship at Ratanga Junction in the Western Cape and thank you for ALL for your compliments and messages of appreciation. The Championship was supported by the various Dance Associations in South Africa and created a platform for unity and Freedom to Dance. We will be hosting another WDC AL Championship this year and endeavour to making it another memorable experience for the South African community.
