Dancesport Wales is the governing body for Ballroom and Latin American dancing in Wales. Established to support and promote amateur dancing. As the National Governing Body it represents Wales at The British Dance Council (BDC) and The World Dancesport Federation.(WDSF, formerly the IDSF) and is a member of the Dance Promoters Association.
In order to select couples to send to these competitions, a series of chart events take place each year. By taking part in these events dancers accumulate points, and the couples gaining the highest number of points and showing the most dedication and development are selected. These dancers are also invited to take part in specialised “squad training”.
Dancesport Wales also runs The Welsh Open Ballroom and Latin American Championships each year at the Sport Wales National Training Centre in Sophia Gardens in Cardiff.
