16 August 2020 – Associated Board of Dance CANCELLED

Dear Teachers, Inventors and Dancers, unfortunately it is with great sadness that due to the current unprecedented times we find ourselves living in with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Associated Board of Dance has taken the decision to cancel the Inventive Sequence competition scheduled for Sunday 16th August 2020.

As an association we will always view the health and well-being of our members and dancers as our priority. Due to Government guidance and advice on social distancing we feel it would be prudent to reschedule this event for next year.

Please be assured we will be holding our event in 2021 and look forward to welcoming you all for a great day’s dancing and competition. Stay safe, stay well and keep dancing!
