It is with regret that due to circumstances beyond our control, the Board of Directors have taken the decision to cancel the forthcoming Nationwide Finals:
CLASSICAL & MODERN SEQUENCE FINALS (Saturday 24th / Sunday 25th October 2020)
FREESTYLE & ROCK & ROLL FINALS (Saturday 7th / Sunday 8th November 2020)
We consider the safety of our members and their schools to be of the utmost importance.
Guidance on how large venues, like the Winter Gardens, Blackpool, can reopen has not been issued and even if the venue is able to open soon it would be extremely difficult for us to run such huge events safely.
Other contributing factors include a growing concern that we will suffer a second wave of Covid-19 as Autumn approaches, plus any local lockdowns will prevent people travelling. These factors alongside booking/cancelling hotels/ transport and social distancing will make it impossible to run safely.
This was not an easy decision and many weeks of serious thought and deliberation has gone into arriving at this conclusion.
We hope you understand our concerns .
As soon as there are any further developments you will be notified immediately.
