For the first time the National Championships will be holding WDSF Open Championship events! The WDSF Under-21 Standard, Latin and 10-Dance Open Championships will be held during the evening sessions of the competition. These events are not to be missed either as a competitor or as a spectator.

This competition is always high energy and everyone just “leaves it on the floor.”
