This year some of our open competitors took part at the DPA Summer Dance Festival which held the UK Closed Ballroom & Latin Championships in all levels. There was also, Masters Open competitions which welcomed people not only from the UK but from all over the world.
We not only proudly attended this event, but both Principals of CDS also had the honour of adjudicating on one of the 4 days, Clara on the Thursday and Damian on the Sunday evening.
This is one of the major events in the UK dance calendar, and all of our pupils made us especially proud.

Each day brought a new competitions based on different dances, and naturally new results.
The competition was fierce as many of the top dancers all over the United Kingdom participated wishing to achieve a first place title as UK Closed Champion or even becoming a finalist.
