 We are pleased to share the exciting Calendar of Events, that is jam-packed with Competitions, Workshops, Development Congresses, Professional Development, WDC and WDC AL World Series events.

 We are very pleased to announce we have remained consistent with the dates of the Super Series Championships, which are now in its EIGHTH year of existence. The Super Series draws top talent from ALL the Regions in South Africa and are qualifiers for the much sought after South African Colours. 

Our South African Open Dance Championships (SAODC), is on 29 November - 1 December 2019 in Kwazulu-Natal, one of the most scenic provinces in South Africa with rich history and beautiful weather. South African Champion titles will be awarded in ALL dance style e.g. Ballroom, Latin American, Solo, Disco/Freestyle, Social/Pro-Am and the like. We have remained consistent with the date of the SA Championship which is the week before the WDC AL Open to World Championships.
