Dear dancers,This year again we have our Open World Championships in Paris in December, at the end of the year. More and more countries and organizations are joining the Amateur League and organize competitions in their home-countries.More and more competitors give preference to be judged by "the best of the best" and go to the best competitions of the world. The WDC Amateur League has started to provide more competitions on more levels of dancing and in more forms of dancing. We want to give you a "warm welcome" from the very beginning as pre-amateurs to the very end of your professional careers. We've made a promise and will keep it: the Freedom to Dance where you want and enjoy it! Sammy Stopford.
