We attend a number IDTA competitions each year at a range of venues in the North East as well as national finals at Blackpool Winter Gardens and Stoke. We take part in two main disciplines - Ballroom & Latin and Old Time & Modern Sequence.

All of the events include fun competitions for adults and juniors alike with extra qualifying rounds at the Medallist of the Year events for those wishing to compete in the IDTA Medallist of the Year competition at Blackpool's Winter Gardens or the IDTA Medallist Festival at Stoke on Trent.

The timetabling of competitions varies, but a typical year includes plenty of events to keep you busy and you are free to pick and choose which you want to attend.

There is no pressure for students to compete in any dance competition and those who want to dance just for fun are always more than welcome.
