Press Release – Foundation of the All - New WDC Competitors Commission to be wholly funded by WDC !

Dear valued members,
Dear Competitors,

As you might be aware, also in part from the WDC Press Release in February 2018, the WDC  Board of Directors has dissolved the WDC Competitors Commission in its former format, due to various ongoing issues at that time.

The WDC Board of Directors feels, that the WDC Competitors and WDC AL Competitors cannot be left any longer without proper representation and are therefore excited and delighted in announcing the launch of the NEW WDC Competitors Commission with immediate effect.

Whilst undertaking this hugely important task, the Board of Directors decided to start with a blank sheet of paper and design and structure an entirely new "fit for purpose" system to benefit the 2018-2025 developments in the dance world. As many of you may know, the original Competitors Commission was developed for a system which was extant in the 1980's!

This all-new Commission will therefore include Competitor representatives from all WDC competitive styles of current  interests and activity, such as Ballroom, Latin -  American, Smooth, Rhythm, and WDC AL Amateurs as well as Pro-Am representatives, and will for the very first time, be wholly funded by the World Dance Council from the Licensing monies received. 

It seems only right!

The WDC is excited to announce that the Commission will be funded by the WDC with 2 British Pounds out of every Competitors Registration received, in order to have a budget for their good work. Also they will be represented on the Competitive Dance Executive Board with 2 appointed representatives, holding one vote on the CDEB.

The WDC is therefore thrilled and delighted to also announce that the Top Professional Competitors appointed to head the NEW WDC Competitors Commission are Riccardo Cocchi (Professional Latin), Victor Fung (Professional Ballroom), Klemen Prasnikar (Amateur Latin), amongst many other top competitors, that have joined the Executive Committee of the new Commission.

Future appointments for all other styles will be advised very soon.

Two of the immediate tasks upon which the new body will deliberate will be plans for a WDC Competitors Commission and WDC World Dance Awards Dinner and Dance held in the Spanish Halls in Blackpool on Thursday, 23rd May 2019. More details on this exciting evening will be published in due course.

The first however... the bone of contention.. WADA and drug-testing requirements and the way ahead.

We truly look forward to updating you on their progress as we embark on this new and exciting era which is truly reflective of Competitors' concerns in the new arena of diverse dance activities and fit for the pathways ahead.

The WDC Board of Directors

DSA Rule Amendments – June, 2018

 We’ve had feedback on our earlier decision to restrict participation in the recreational division to recreational registrants only, designed to prevent unfairness where recreational competitors were allowed to partner with unregistered individuals and with accredited DSA members. This has led to reported unintended consequences in recreational participation and in some studios’ operations. DSA Rule amendments - effective 1st June, 2018 - will alleviate the principal participation issue and clarify some related areas that were previously not well defined.

These changes better define rules which permit non-accredited people to partner competitors in Recreational Division events. The principal still holds that all participants in registered Dancesport events must be registered with DSA, with exceptions for novelty and other specifically exempted events. Additionally, it was found that the current rules make no provision for “Individual” events in the Recreational Division – i.e. Best Boy / Girl / Male/ Female and similarly titled events. As a consequence, these events have been seen as being in the Teacher / Student category, and, whilst the Teacher/ Student category of events has gained acceptance since its introduction, the initial rules (Rule 24) did not match the intended outcomes.

Thus, changes to DSA’s ‘Rules of DanceSport’ have been introduced with effect from 1st June, 2018. The details can be accessed by clicking here 

Please note also that DSA Policy No CR 017.1 – ‘Pro / Am and Teacher / Student Guidelines’ is withdrawn, where the foregoing (and earlier) rule changes make this ‘guideline’ redundant.

Subject: WDSF Sports Bulletin 5/18 - Athletes Participation at WDSF Championships/Cups/Games
Importance: High

Dear Members, Dear Colleagues,

 In accordance with WDSF Competition Rules, ALL entries to WDSF Championships/Cups/Games must be submitted directly by the National Bodies to the organisers. No athletes are allowed to enter any Championships/Cups/Games on line or by any other means without the approval and consent of the WDSF National Member Bodies. This requirement include entries to WDSF Senior and other WDSF Open Championships.

Organisers who wish to use on-line registration may do so for other events and NOT Championships and Cups. 

We look forward to your full compliance of this requirement to protect the WDSF Competition system and the rights and responsibilities of the WDSF National Member Bodies.

Regards,

Shawn Tay

WDSF 1st Vice-President, Vice-President for Sport

It is with considerable regret we must announce the cancellation of the Dancesport Australia National Championship (D.A.N.C.E.) - Wollongong June 30th to July 1st, 2018.

 We all enjoyed an excellent response from the Dancesport community to last year's inaugural event in Wollongong.  However, this year we have found that financial considerations in executing our competition model in Wollongong were not compatible with a responsible outcome. This led to the difficult but necessary decision by DSA’s National Council to cancel this year's event.

 Those competitors / DSA members who believe and can demonstrate they have experienced any irretrievable financial penalty with air flight bookings as a result of this cancellation should contact DSA’s CEO in writing, where applications for recompense will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

 Again, we are deeply sorry about not being able to execute this event.   We have already commenced planning for 2019 and in the interim, National Council has decided that the selection events usually conducted at the National Championship will be managed within the Australian Championships in Melbourne in December, 2018.    

 We trust that you will continue to support DSA, its many initiatives and the many competitions that are set to take place nationally in 2018.

 

On behalf of the DanceSport Australia National Council

Steve Edwards - CEO - DanceSport Australia
