  • No Nationals in November

    Please see the information below from the organizers of the US national Amateur Dancesport Championships regarding the remainder of the championships, originally rescheduled for November at BYU:

    “It is with great sadness and disappointment that we announce the remainder of the U.S. National Amateur DanceSport Championships, tentatively re-scheduled for November 2020, will be cancelled.

    In March when the championships were halted after the first two days due to the sudden decisions from state and local authorities across the United States we were so hopeful that the national titles that were not held in March could be completed in November. However, the reality is that this will not be possible at this time.

    Consequently, there will be no National Amateur titles awarded for 2020 for those events that were not run in Provo in March.

    We hope so much that we will be able to hold the 2021 U.S. National Amateur DanceSport Championships in Provo March 10-13, 2021. There will be no carry-over of age eligibilities from 2020 to 2021 – all competitors will need to enter in the age categories that they are eligible for as of the date of the 2021 championships.

    Please check back as this year comes to a close for more details.
