  1. 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.

    Fall 2012
    October 20, 2012 --- UIUC ("Dancing Illini Dancesport Invitational")

    TBD --- Badger Ballroom Dancesport Classic (University of Wisconsin)

    November 10, 2012 --- 15th Annual Purdue Ballroom Classic [Oct 26, 2013; Oct 25, 2014]

    November 17, 2012 --- Ohio Star Ball/National Collegiate Championships

    Spring 2013

    February, 23rd 2013 --- Valparaiso University's 5th Annual Ballroom Competition

    March 2-3, 2013 --- Arnold Dancesport Classic

    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): . 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.

    The Gotham City Dancesport Challenge (NYU's comp) will be on Saturday, April 20 next year (2013). At least it should be. *fingers crossed*

    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.
