Welcome to the UKSSDC
The UK Same Sex Dance Council (UKSSDC) represents the interests of UK same-sex dancers, trainers, adjudicators and competition organisers both in the UK and internationally. The Council works in collaboration with other international organisations to bring UK opinions and concerns to the table in a unified way. Further, the UKSSDC seeks to bring visibility and prominence to UK competitors, adjudicators and organisers on the international same-sex dance scene.
The Council’s current objectives include:
• Encouragement of new competitors of all standards from beginners to advanced to participate in same-sex competitions.
• Providing outreach to other regions/cities across the UK and competitions
• Providing information to competitors.
The UKSSDC was founded in May 2006 as a consultative and representative organisation for same-sex competitive dancing in the UK. The UKSSDC is primarily concerned with competitive same-sex dancing and does not take a direct interest in the UK’s well developed same-sex social dancing scene.
The first general meeting and election of the Committee was held on 18th February 2007 in London. The current Committee was elected in 2012 for a two term year. The next AGM will take place in 2014
Together we have the strength to form consensus and influence international debates on the organisation, rules and advancement of same-sex competition. The UKSSDC needs your support – you are the real body of British same-sex dancing and your opinions matter. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a member of the UKSSDC.

Come along to the next AGM which is to be held at the Rivoli Ballroom on March 1st 2014
Doors open at 5.30 for a 5.45 start.
The meeting will end before Jacky starts the evening's social dancing.
This year there are elections for board members. Come and vote for your favourite nominees in the elections and bring your thoughts on what you want from the UKSSDC. The lively meeting last year brought many interesting ideas from members. Much of the UKSSDC's work this year has developed directly from members' comments and ideas from the last AGM.
Why not put yourself forward for a place on the board!
Look out for the next newsletter which will give details of how to stand for election, how to apply for a postal vote and how to get in touch to put an item for discussion on the agenda.
ALL MEMBERS WELCOME!!
