What looks like a happening trend among dancesport competitions is certainly welcome in our dance community. I would like to present for your consideration, The Eastern United States Dancesport Championships.
This is a virtual event. You can either pre-record your dancing or compete live on Zoom. This is a three-day event of world-class dancing being held on February 19 - 21, 2021.
The Eastern United States Dancesport Championships is one of the longest running competitions in the United States having run since 1968. EUSDC is one of the three original Championship events organized by the United States Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (USISTD).
Former Eastern United States Champions include Corky & Shirley Ballas, Brian & Christine McDonald, Rufus Dustin & Marianne Nicole, Edward Simon & Katharina Marks, Wayne & Donna Eng, Diana McDonald, Alain Doucet & Anik Jolicoeur, Denis Tremblay & Mireille Veilleux, Joe & Nancy Jenkins, Ilya & Amanda Reyzin, Bill Davies & Amy Block, Frank & Victoria Regan, and Larry & Betty Silvers.
In 2008, EUSDC moved from Cherry Hill, New Jersey to its current home of Boston, Massachusetts. Since then, it has become of one of the premier competitions in the country for Pro/Am, Amateur, and Professional competitors who attend the competition each year from across the country to compete for the prestigious title of Eastern United States Champions.
Remember pre-teens, teens, junior and youth accumulate points because this competition
is one sponsored by the Fordney Foundation. If you think you would be interested in being part of this virtual event, here is a link that goes directly to the site:
***We have received contributions from individuals who would like to have a dear relative or friend who passed on remembered that loved to dance or was a dance aficionado. We call these memorial contributions. Perhaps you would like to have someone memorialized in this manner. Make a donation and give us their name. We have on our website a yellow brick road to engrave their name to a brick as a memorial to that person. This contribution will assist future generations of dancers and help keep young people more positive and healthy.
