As the hosts of the annual ‘DanceComp’ which is normally a Live event held in Dublin and with group events not allowed this year due to Covid-19 restrictions, we needed to think of a different way for our 7th annual event to still take place.
We wanted dancers to still feel the thrill of a Live competition, so, with the expertise of Vitaliy and Nadiya Tkachenko from ‘FlyMark’, we decided to organise a Live Online competition which would also be broadcast Live on our YouTube channel.
This would be the first time an event of this kind would be run from Ireland, but our team here at WPDA is always up for a challenge and we worked tirelessly to make it happen.
We put together a full programme of Ballroom, Latin and HipHop events to be held on November 14th and 15th. As soon as the online entry system was open, entries started to pour in from all across the globe. We had over 500 entries from 11 different countries!
Our amazing comperes for the two days were the wonderful Igor Gutovskyi and Viktoriya Kvitochka. We were so lucky to have a world renowned panel of adjudicators with us for the weekend:
We would like to offer a sincere thank you to all of our adjudicators, our comperes, DJ, FlyMark, all of the clubs that took part and our own students and parents for working so hard to make it happen.
Special thanks to these amazing companies who sponsored The DanceComp 2020, especially during such a difficult time for businesses. Our winners were delighted with their wonderful prizes
Dance Pro Clothing,
Sasuel Costume Design,

To top it all off our amazing students came away with some fantastic results and were delighted to have the opportunity to compete internationally alongside some extremely talented dancers!
