More details will be posted July 15th.
Our next major competition will be Sept 21, 2019. The New World Dancesport Challenge has been adopted as our sister competition. This competition will be held in Columbus Ohio May 24-25th. Columbus is a great place to visit. I hope that you will consider attending. I plan to compete and also stay an extra day to see the world famous Columbus Zoo again.
We are experimenting with other small competition formats and developing the infrastructure to support them. Our next competition will have an internet based registration system. This system has been under development for the past year. It will be open source and available to other organizers.
USA Dance now allows organizers and chapters to bid on hosting the national competition. I'd like to see Georgia DanceSport with skilled volunteers who can do this. To get to that point would require a volunteer base working year round with planning, logistics, and marketing skills so that in 5-6 years we are hosting our own NQE. Many of you have children competing at this years Georgia DanceSport event. By 2024 those same youngsters could be competing at Championship level in City Springs Municipal Complex in Sandy Springs. I should point out that City Springs is a newly built complex has a 5000 sq ft permanent spring/dance floor. This is certainly a venue worth investigating!
If you are interested in volunteering please contact me as I could use all the help I can get.
We will have a contest for the best YouTube video submitted for the Georgia DanceSport Competition 2019. More detail will be available shortly. Please note that ISTD medal exams may NOT be videotaped.
