Event Organisers

The Event Organiser is a person or a group of people delegated to organising, promoting and running an Event registered with DanceSport Australia. Sometimes they are private individuals and other times they may be a delegated committee of an established Dance Society or DanceSport Australia.

Event Organisers agree to abide by DSA Rules & Policies and carry an appropriate Public Liability Insurance. Adherence to DSA Rules & Policies creates consistency for competitors, Coaches and Adjudicators.

It is worth noting that there are many features of an Event that Organisers can modify within the existing Rules.

A simple example of this is that an Organiser may require competitors to compete in only their Grade while another Organiser might allow competitors to compete in the next higher Grade. Generally speaking, large competitions will require competitors to compete in their Grades because it would be impossible to run the Event otherwise. Always consult the Event Terms and Conditions

Any person, Society or group can apply to become an Event Organiser, contact the Administration Team through the Contact Us page with your details so that registration can be completed.
