The National Congress

In 2008 the very first National Congress was held at the Spanish Hall in the Wintergardens, Blackpool during the British National Championships. Whilst the International congress has a long and illustrious history, the National Congress continues to go from strength to strength each year and has become a favourite in the dance event calendar. 

Why is there a National Congress?

The BDF felt that it was neccesssary to give something back to their members and followers and also to the dance industry. Each year 7 world class lecturers are invited to give a lecture of 20 minutes each… no small feat when trying to pass on as much knowledge as possible! 

And all this for FREE to all BDF Members and anyone else that would like to attend! 

The Past, Present & Future of the National Congress

Over the years the audience have been treated to suberb lectures by our dance industry’s most famous names. The BDF has also moved with the times & last year we ran the National Congress virtually, which was a phenomenal success. The BDF also has it’s own YouTube channel and social media sites where you can watch some snippets & see photos of these fabulous lectures.
