International congress History

The BDF International Congress is organised by the BDF every other year, in co-operation with the WDC/BDC.  This used to be known as the World Congress and was started in the early 50’s.
The names and faces of the most revered and famous of dancers, teachers & coaches throughout these years has given the International Congress the title of certainly one of the best Congresses in the dance calendar.

It is held over 2 days the Open British Championships in May at the beautiful Spanish Hall but in it’s earlier days, was held in the Wintergardens itself.

The International Congress has proved to be an inspiration to many dancers & all those who attend and it is deemed an honour to be asked to take part.
