WHAT ARE THE COMMONWEALTH CUP DANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS?

image31

The Commonwealth Cup Dance Championships is an international partnership to unite a family of dancers from all Commonwealth Nations for the common purpose of dance education, while displaying good sportsmanship and fostering friendship. 


It began in 2017 and was hosted in Sun City, South Africa by hosts Bonnie Dyer (Canada) and Bev Wood (South Africa).  Sun City was such a gracious host that they are once again holding the championships one more year in South Africa!  It was am amazing experience for all and there are even more dancers from even more nations in this second year of the event!!


The Commonwealth Cup Dance Championships (CCDC) are a biannual event that convenes dancers from ALL Commonwealth nations to celebrate excellence in dance.  The plan herein after is to have a different Commonwealth Nation host each competition. 


Team Canada Dance is intending on taking teams to South Africa for the even July 16-20, 2019.  We are planning on taking the established teams that just finished competing at the 2018 IDO Championships in Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Modern/Contemporary, Showdance, and  Streetdance Show.  


Team Canada Dance did amazing at our first competition in South Africa!  Stay tuned for pics from the competition!  If you were a member of the 2017 Team Canada Commonwealth, we would love to see your pics - please submit to Melissa or Bonnie.
