Welcome to Dancesport Scotland, which was originally founded in 1945. In conjunction with Sport Scotland we are the recognised governing body for Ballroom and Latin American dancing in Scotland. Our aim is to promote Ballroom and Latin American dancing, for both social and competitive levels, by organising competition days for all ages and grades, afternoon tea dances open to all and dance workshops to help couples improve. Our annual Grand Finale and flagship event is the Scottish Closed Championships held annually in December. We also provide support and representation for Scotland on the world stage in competitions such as the European and World Championships.
We hope that visiting our website will provide you with all the latest information you need to know regarding upcoming competitions and events organised by Dancesport Scotland. Our ‘Social Dance Clubs’ section will let you know of other events being run that may be of interest to you.
Our ‘Professional Teachers’ section holds an extensive list of dance schools throughout Scotland helping to make it easier for current and future enthusiasts to find a place to dance locally.
Competitors, please note, all future competitions will have PRE-REGISTRATION available in advance of competition day through the website, so please visit the ‘Competition Dates’ section of our website to then complete and send the form, as directed.
All members of Dancesport Scotland benefit from discounted entry fees to our competitions and Sunday tea dances, regular newsletters throughout the year and, of course, voting rights at our Annual General Meeting. To take advantage of these benefits yourself please follow the link to our 'Join' section, complete the membership form and send it, along with your payment, to the address detailed on the form.
We hope that one day we can welcome you as a new member to Dancesport Scotland.
Following on from the announcements by HM Government and the Scottish Government, we have decided to cancel the competition due to be held at Falkirk on 5th April 2020 and also to cancel the Latin workshop due to be held in Edinburgh on 10th May 2020. The next event in our calendar is the adult competition at Grangemouth on 6th June 2020. No decision has been taken as yet in connection with that event. We will continue to monitor developments and will keep you all advised.
In the meantime, we trust that you will all stay safe and well and we look forward to meeting you again at a future date.
