    Hi,

    This is the first time I have been on this site properly and was hoping to get to know people better. Well, I'm Jade and I'm 17 from the UK. I dance Latin American dancing in competitions around the UK and am going to be competing Internationally soon. Myself and my partner are sponsored by a dress maker in the UK, so that means free dresses... woohoo! lol
    Is there a lot of competitions that we could enter in the US?

    Hi, Welcome! For the amateur scene, you should at least check out Embassy Ball in Los Angeles, USDC in Miami, and Ohio Star Ball. The first two are IDSF sanctioned, I believe. Smaller comps include Manhattan Amateur Classic, Yankee Classic in Boston, Emerald Ball, etc... I'm sure other members have more comps in mind.

    If you're also interested, there are a number of collegiate competitions which has a good number of dancers. The major ones include DC Dance Inferno(DCDI), MIT Open Ballroom Competition, and Harvard. Hope to see you at comps! :)
