We are pleased to announce that Delta Cup has been approved as a host for the NDCC BC Closed Championships for 2018. The provincial championships recognize the top championship-level dancers in the province in a number of age groups.
VCC’s Sunday Funday, a one-day event in June hosted the NDCC BC Closed Championships for the Adult age categories. Delta Cup will offer the NDCC BC Closed Championships for Juvenile, Junior, Youth and all Senior age categories. Dancers in BC now have a chance to compete in both the DanceSport BC provincial championships (held in Nanaimo at the Island Fantasy Ball) as well as those sanctioned by the National Dance Council of Canada.
The two sanctioning organizations vary in their philosophies regarding the Ballroom and Latin dances. One organization applies a strong sports emphasis while the other is focused on respecting the artistic integrity of this highly athletic activity. As a result of these different approaches to partner dancing, competition judging can potentially bring about different results. This is good for the dance community, providing two opportunities each year for the top couples to gain recognition as the provincial champions. We are also offering the NDCC BC Closed Pro/Am Championships, recognizing BC’s top Pro/Am competitors in Ballroom, Latin, Smooth and Rhythm.
The National Dance Council of Canada is an umbrella organization bringing together professional associations in Canada under the auspices of the World Dance Council. The NDCC sanctions competitions, registers amateur dancers and provides guidelines for competitors and competition organizers. The NDCC hosts its own Canadian Championships in Gatineau, QC, with this year’s event taking place August 24-25, 2018.
Delta Cup organizers George and Wendy Pytlik are committed to seeing the dance community work together, so we strongly encourage all championship-level couples to continue supporting both provincial championships.
Working in cooperation with Sunday Funday, a number of new trophies will be sponsored. We are seeking trophy sponsors. If you are interested in sponsoring a BC Provincial championship trophy, please see our sponsorship page.
