Is there a list of all the college competitions in USA with dates? Thanks in advance
I don't think there is an actual list website anywhere. I know the midwest collegiate dancers have a fb group that we keep updated with all our competitions (and it does stretch outside of the proper midwest too) I can list off the midwest schools, but I'm not sure about the EC.
this could be a good place to start making such a list.
Here is the list I pulled from the FB group.
October 20, 2012 --- UIUC ("Dancing Illini Dancesport Invitational")
TBD --- Badger Ballroom Dancesport Classic (University of Wisconsin)
We're having space and date reservation issues, hopefully they will be resolved in the near future.

March 23, 2013 --- Irish DanceSport Gala (Notre Dame University)
April 13-14, 2013 --- Iowa Dancesport Classic (University of Iowa)
The list in the FB group stays VERY updated since all of the officers of the midwest teams are in the group. I can try to bring changes over here when I see them happen though!
(apologies to the mods if I'm not supposed to post this sort of list)
This calendar seems relatively comprehensive (It's Ily's, right? I'm pretty sure I found it through a link here on DF at some point): http://www.dance.zsconcepts.com/comp_list.cgi . Though it looks like there are plenty of 2013 comps still needing to decide/communicate their dates.
About 75% of the midwest collegiate comps use that site, so most of them will be on there once their registration opens.
DCDI 2012 will be the first weekend of November.

Although I don't know specific dates, for New England, the usual time of year for various comps is something like this:
Harvard Beginners: Early to Mid October
UConn Husky Classic: Mid October
Yale Ballroom Competition: Mid to Late October
Brown Ballroom Dance Competition: Mid November
Big Apple Dancesport Challenge (Columbia): Early December (Two days)
Tufts Ballroom Competition: Early December
Boston University Terrier Dancesport Competition: Early to Mid February
Holy Cross Ballroom Competition: Mid to Late February
Harvard Invitational: Mid March seems to be the usual time (Two Days)
Northeast Collegiate Dancesport Challenge (Brandeis): Mid March
MIT Open: Mid April (Two Days)
The University of Vermont is planning to host the first "Green and Gold Classic" (open to all) in November... same weekend as DCDI unfortunately
The Gotham City Dancesport Challenge (NYU's comp) will be on Saturday, April 20 next year (2013). At least it should be. *fingers crossed*
Here is the link for the midwest group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/289595691103814/
Is there a similar group for the EC? Or any other area for that matter?
It's nice to see some schools can have their 2013 dates already listed. But many college teams are secondary users of the available space. My college team has to wait until the athletic teams have set their home game schedules before the facility will commit to a date for our competition.
Here are 2 more!
