Our core ethos is encapsulated by our strapline: "Ballroom Without Boundaries, Latin Without Limitations". We want every dancer, from beginners to professionals, to compete honestly and competitively, without prejudice or bias, through competitive pathways.
We want our community to be a place of "Inspiration Without Intimidation". No matter your skill level or background, the BDSA is a nurturing and supportive environment.
