M.S.D.V. Let’s Dance! Competition Team

Are you excited about Latin & Ballroom dancing? Can you not get enough? Then you should join the competition team of M.S.D.V. Let’sDance!

Do not fear the word ‘competition’, as there are people from all levels participating! We have members who are beginners and have been dancing for less than a year and members who have danced a lifetime and are semi-professionals! There is a place for everyone and the best of all is the atmosphere, the experiences, memories and the room for growth!

Three times a year there are big student competitions:

  • The ETDS (European Tournament for Dancing Students) which is held twice a year. This is a three-day competition. It is held in the Netherlands or other countries around Europe. Next editions take place on 7,8 & 9 June in Clausthal and 11, 12 & 13 October 2019 in Groningen.
  • The NTDS (Dutch Tournament for Dancing Students), which is held once a year. This is also a three-day competition, naturally held in the Netherlands. Next edition takes place on 22, 23 & 24 February 2019 in Nijmegen.

These competitions are a mix of serious dancing and a fun atmosphere, so you don’t have to feel nervous about your dancing skills. ☺ There are several levels, so everyone can join:

  • Beginners (for the NTDS you are allowed to participate in this category if you have been dancing for a year or less)
  • Breitensport (with 4 levels: amateurs, professionals, masters, and champions)
  • Closed class (mostly offered at the ETDS)
  • Open class

! Important !: you don’t need a partner to participate, but of course it is practical to have a partner. For dancers without a partner there is the possibility of blind dating. This means that you get to dance with dancers from other teams and see who fits your dance moves best. You can dance a competition with two different partners if you would like (one in Latin and one in Ballroom).

We hope to see you at one or more of these competitions! For questions please send an email to the team captain via
