‘Selecting the Gibraltar National Dance Team for the

2015 IDO European Championships’

The Gibraltar National Dance Organisation has started its selection process for dancers to compete at the forthcoming IDO European Show Dance Championships that will be held in Gibraltar in October 2015.

The GNDO shall be organising the Gibraltar National Championships from the 7 to 9 May 2015 at the John Mackintosh Hall Theatre. The championships will follow the same procedure of national competitions as accredited by the world governing body, the International Dance Organisation. The national show dance competition is open to all individual dancers, groups and schools in the Children, Junior and Adult divisions. The categories for this competition are Solo, Duet and Groups sections.

Dancers who qualify from this competition will join those dancers already selected for the Formation section, and will form the 2015 Gibraltar National Dance Team.

GNDO President, Seamus Byrne said,

The competition is the local qualifier to gain entry into the IDO European Show Dance Championships that will be staged in Gibraltar in October 2015. This is a unique opportunity for local dancers to compete at the prestigious IDO event in our homeland and for them to show the world the high standards that exist locally.

We are therefore hoping that all local dance schools and other individuals will be part of this exciting competition.’

Entry forms are available from local dance schools or by contacting the GNDO on e-mail: The closing date for entries is Friday 20th March 2015.

The IDO European Championships, which have the full backing of Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar, will take place between the 1st and 4th October 2015.
