Event description

Description

The UK Equality Open aims to bring Competitive Same Sex and Equality Dancing to new areas around the UK. You only need to register ONCE, no matter how many categories you enter - it's a one off registration fee. There is a discount for UKSSDC members for competitors.

We will contact every competitor nearer the time to confirm which categories you wish to enter, if not already stated at registration.

In 2019 we hope to bring you a jam packed day of dancing in the following categories:

Please note: Open Categories can be couples of any making irrelevant of gender or ability and can also be danced by couples already competing in Men's or Women's Categories. However, we are hoping this might give competitive couples the opportunity to dance with someone they might not usually dance with!


Morning Session:

- Single Dance Category (Waltz) for Beginners only, having not competed in any competition before (excluding UK Fun Comp) and competitors can compete in E Class as well.

- All-Comers Ballroom Starters (E Class - Waltz & Quickstep) This is also for couples who have not competed before, there is no classification round, but there will be a general look.

- Men’s, Women’s & Open Couples Ballroom (Graded A-D Class with classification rounds)

- Showdance Couples (performance time between 2mins 15 secs and 5mins 30 secs including entry and exit). Music must be provided to the DJ at registration.

Afternoon Session:

- Single Dance Category (Cha Cha Cha) for Beginners only, having not competed in any competition before (excluding UK Fun Comp) and competitors can compete in E Class as well.

- All-Comers Latin American Starters (E Class - Cha Cha Cha & Jive). This is also for couples who have not competed before, there is no classification round, but there will be a general look.

- Men’s, Women’s & Open Couples Latin American (Graded A-D Class with classification rounds)

- Showdance Teams (minimum of 8 dancers per group, this can be formation or showdance, danced in one category. Performance time between 4mins and 7mins including entry and exit). Music must be provided to the DJ at registration.

- Wheelchair Dancesport Freestyle BEGINNERS (for both Same Sex and Open, Duo/Combi Couples all in one category - performance time between 2min 15 secs and 5mins 30 secs).

Wheelchair Dancesport Freestyle ADVANCED (for both Same Sex and Open, Duo/Combi Couples all in one category - performance time between 2min 15 secs and 5mins 30 secs).


Senior category results will be the combined results from the graded rounds and will be combined results from A-D categories. We hope to have senior participation in 2019 and if there are enough couples going forward we will look to have separate categories in future comps.

The competition will be run under UKSSDC competition rules and ESSDA guidelines on showdance, however as we have some additional categories not all rules will apply. Please contact us if you would like further information.
