BDF International Congress

 29th – 30th May, 2021

Spanish Hall, Blackpool

The BDF International Congress has been postponed till May 2021 due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

A great idea of Honorary past President Sonny Binick, the BDF International Congress is held at the Blackpool Dance Festival bi-annually.
It has proven to be extremely popular with our overseas visitors who continually tell us that it goes from strength to strength every time they attend.

The feast of lectures from the “world`s best” constantly leaves the audience spellbound.

A “must” to attend in 2020 and completely free of charge to BDF members of 2 years of more.

The BDF would also like to thank Loraine Barry for her continue support as our BDF Ambassador working behind  the scenes to promote our work and events.

Future Dates: 23rd & 24th May 2020 during Blackpool Dance Festival.

It is with deep  regret that due to the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus and the recent government guidelines the BDF International  Congress will be postponed.

The proposed date of the congress will be during the Open Blackpool Dance Festival which is now being held from the 25th August to the 6th September 2020. The exact dates of the congress will be confirmed as soon as possible .
