Please convey our congratulations to the president & the whole EC for a wonderful Virtual Night of 100 Stars. This was a very professional presentation involving a lot of work & technical expertise. We thank you all most sincerely. Please take care, stay safe & stay healthy. Kindest regards, Michael & Vicky Barr

Please send our congratulations to Kenny and the BDF Committee for a job well done !  We have just watch the virtual Night of 100 Stars and we have to say what a great programme it was.  The content and production was super. Thank you for the chance to witness this first virtual 100 Stars, although we hope it’s the first and last time. Hopefully next year we will be there in person to watch it live !!! Well done guys, Regards Lorna & Michael Stylianos
On behalf of Hazel and myself we would like to congratulate the B.D.F
Committee on an endeavour superbly done. You have once again, through great ingenuity and foresight, delivered to the starved dance fans a smorgasbord of great dancers and dancing, packaged and produced to the highest quality.
I know we speak for the majority when we say it has helped to fill the gap in our dance history, irretrievably lost. The interviews relating to each couples inspiration was delivered by all with such humility and thought provoking insights.
Our business undoubtedly is blessed by dancers of great skill and artistry. Graham must be congratulated for his compering skills knitting together the whole show in his own inimitable way, clear and concise. Again another successful venture that will be remembered in these difficult times. Alan and Hazel Fletcher
