The Ballroom Dancers’ Federation have been organising the World Championship for over thirty
years and are delighted that Great Britain has been granted these titles to enable us run to the
prestigious event on behalf of the World Dance Council . We are also lucky enough to host this
event at the home of Ballroom Dancing itself , the Empress , Ballroom , Wintergardens ,
As you are probably aware the cost of running such a championship is extremely high and
without the generous support of various companies and individuals over the years it would
have been very difficult for Great Britain to host such an event . Our appreciation goes to the
following for their support and loyalty to our dance business over the years, “Asia Starlight
Dance Association”, “Arthur Murray International” ,Supadance Internernational ,
Freed of London, Dance Today, Chrisanne Clover, Edda Hsu, Espen International , Dance Sport
International and Dance Options Cheam . The BDF is also grateful to Mrs Sandra Wilson and her
team who take full control of all the ticket sales and arrangements at the Wintergardens.
Such an event relies on the support of the audience and the dance school principles who bring in
large parties, the fabulous cabarets and opening ceremonies that have taken place over the years
and the work of the BDF sub-committee, and Martin Cutler who has has co-ordinated most of the
We look forward to our next World Ballroom Championship on 21st November 2021 and we hope to see you all there!
