At the recent 2017 NDCA Amateur Nationals in Provo, the Competitors Commission gave additional scholarship money to the top 12 couples in Amateur Latin and Ballroom. We plan to continue the Competitors Commission Scholarship every year and expand to more styles as the fund grows larger.
The Competitors Commission would also like to announce a rule change from the most recent NDCA meeting in January. To help implement rule D.1.a. under ‘Conduct of Competitions’: “The last final of the evening must take the floor before 1:00 a.m.” the following was added to the rule book.
The organizer shall be fined for every event taking the floor after 1:00 a.m.This has been done to help incentivize competitions to keep events to a more reasonable time table.
The NDCA is working hard to continue making this the best country in the world for competitors. The Competitors Commission has been appointed to help aid in that endeavor, and we are excited for the future.
