Stronger together:
EuroGames 2020, ESSDA und DVET align for Dancing in 2020
Equality Dance Sport has been an integral part of EuroGames and Gay Games for many years. The competitions are always characterized by a high quality and attractiveness for the spectators. To guarantee this for the participants, a high level of experience in the organisation of such competitions is required. The EuroGames 2020 in Düsseldorf stand in this tradition and are determined to organize a fantastic dance competition for all participants. TSC conTAKT is contributing its many years of experience in organising competitions, including the German Championships 2015. In addition, a fantastic and proven dance location has been found in the Boston Club.


In order to incorporate the entire experience of the European equality scene, contacts were sought with DVET (German Association for Equality Dance Sports) and ESSDA (European Same‐ Sex Dancing Association). From the beginning it was clear that there was a will to work together to ensure that dancing at the EuroGames 2020 would be superb. In close consultation, a joint agreement has now been reached. This is to be a trend‐setter for the future and bring the various associations closer together again. In the end, everyone is only interested in one thing: dancing.


Therefore, we are happy and proud to announce the following details for the EuroGames 2020:
