To all our Dance Family and Friends,
It is with a heavy heart that we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Florida State Dancesport Championships. Due to the extenuating circumstances of the Coronavirus, the safety of our Amateur Dancers, Professonal Dancers, Staff, Hotel Staff and general public health must come first.
This decison was not an easy one but we feel it is the right one. Although we are disappointed to not host the 48th Annual Florida State, we are looking forward to the 49th in 2021. We have very exciting plans and can't wait to share them with you. We want to thank everyone who planned to attend this year and hope that you keep us on your schedule for 2021.
Make sure to join us at our other competitions: the Indiana Challenge Feb.25-28, 2021 and the 50+ DanceSport Challenge March 6, 2021
